When it comes to the Met Gala, Rihanna does not fail to “wow”. Whether she’s holding court in sumptuous Guo Pei as she did in 2015 or pulling off deconstructed Comme des Garçons just last year, Vogue’s June cover star always stays over the top and on theme.
In keeping with the exhibition’s “Heavenly Bodies” motif, her 2018 look channeled the grandeur of Catholic vestments with a cream bejeweled gown layered beneath a flowing overcoat from Maison Margiela.
With designer John Galliano’s extreme design sensibility taking the idea of saintly dressing into artistic territory, the outfit went beyond the literal thanks to its exquisitely detailed construction.
Finishing things up with a bishop’s hat by Stephen Jones millinery and sleek hair and makeup, the star began the night on an epic high note.
Never one to be reined in, Rihanna probably won’t be trading her decadent wardrobe for a habit any time soon, but her inventive take on the night’s fashion message shows why she continues to inspire the fashion faithful.
