Just when we thought we had seen it all, Rihanna stunned us again. Rihanna’s papal ensemble at the MET gala left social media exploding with a trinity of reactions. The Gammy award winning singer, burgeoning actress, ultra-generous philanthropist, makeup mogul and soon to be lingerie designer left mouths wide open with all the attention on her. She pulled a stunt that really overshadowed the whole event.
The unofficial MET gala queen took the theme quite seriously and that’s why she arrived at the ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ exhibit opening dressed like an actual pope. The papal ensemble featured a tall beaded head dress, embroidered strapless mini dress and long show stopping overcoat.
The outfit became an explosive meme theme all over twitter just minutes after arriving at the event. one of my best was from JP Brammer: White smoke seen pouring out of Vatican, Rihanna hits the Met Gala runway, meaning she has replaced Francis as pontiff #HeavenlyBodies
