Met Gala 2017: Rihanna Wears Comme des Garcons Dress

Teen Vogue


Once the red carpet is closed and the best-dressed lists compiled, Rihanna will be counted as one of the few Met Gala 2017 attendees who actually nailed the dress code. Dressed in Comme des Garcons, Rihanna embodied the year's theme -- a tribute to iconic designer Rei Kawakubo -- in a sculptural ruffled dress, strappy knee-high sandals adorning her feet. Her look came replete with a top knot and bangs -- not to mention otherworldly highlight with neon blush.

Rihanna has a long history of wowing fashion fans on the Met Gala red carpet. In 2015, she honored the "China: Through the Looking Glass" theme by researching gowns online, and landing on an exquisite Guo Pei haute couture confection with a gold-plated headpiece. For the 2009 Met Gala, she stood out in a sea of floor-length dresses in a Dolce & Gabbana satin, puffy-shouldered tuxedo and bright blue eyeshadow.
