Rihanna a stunner
It is also, in my opinion, an excuse for celebrities to dress up in high-end luxury brands.
The Barbadian queen missed the year's MET, but it's no lie she would have shut down the carpet with her stunning looks.
The high fashion show put up a lovely marble statue in her honour, and Rihanna was stunned and loved the gesture.
"Shut down the met in marble! what's more gilded than that? lol! Thank you met museum and vogue magazine for this historic tribute y'all bad for this one."
Other celebrities who did not attend this year's MET are Lady Gaga, Zendaya, Taylor Swift, Timothée Chalamet, Justin Bieber, Kristen Stewart, Harry Styles and Kanye West.
The umbrella crooner was recently spotted dancing her heart out while her boyfriend performed and fans termed her a supportive girlfriend.
Social media was abuzz with the heavily pregnant star's sleek moves.
