Rihanna Went to the Met Gala Dressed As the Ultimate Fashion Bride

I've been excited about this year's Met Gala since the moment last year's ended. Now that the day has finally arrived, I have no qualms about saying that the event has truly outdone itself. This year's unparalleled red carpet looks paid homage to Karl Lagerfeld, one of fashion's most prolific designers.

That said, it's not a real party until Rihanna arrives—and she was definitely fashionably late as the Met Gala's very last arrival (by a long shot). She skipped last year's Met Gala because she gave birth to her firstborn a mere 11 days after the event, but this year, she was thankfully able to walk the steps again. Now pregnant with her second child, Rihanna showed off her baby bump much to the delight of fans. She chose a voluminous look festooned with camellia flowers, a Chanel signature. Scroll down to see Rihanna's 2023 Met Gala look.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
