>When you know that Rihanna is going to make an appearance at a red carpet event, it feels like waiting for the grand finale. Because she’s such an intrepid style star, you can expect her to be the pièce de résistance of even the most sensational style events (see: Met Gala 2017), and last night’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets premiere was no different.
>Rihanna arrived in an over-the-top Giambattista Valli Couture creation with a ballerina-inspired edge. While the volume alone was enough to make the look stand out, it also featured a fitted bodice, puff sleeves, and a pair of delicately wrapped-up sandals by Manolo Blahnik.
>The singer and actress wasn’t the only exciting addition to the event. Simply look to the retro yet futuristic vibes that Cara Delevingne gave off in Iris van Herpen, Kendall Jenner’s very unexpected LBD, and so many other noteworthy style moments.
