Rihanna has arrived!
The 33-year-old entertainer and her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, stepped out at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday (September 13) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Rihanna was a trending topic on social media all night as fans awaited her arrival. Many grew concerned that she would not be showing up after hours went by with no appearance. We’re happy to report – she made it!
The annual Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world’s equivalent of the Oscars and the event is usually held on the first Monday of May, but it was postponed until September 2021 due to the pandemic. The theme this year is “In America” and there will be a two-part exhibit with the second part debuting at next year’s Met Gala.
Rihanna is known for her iconic Met Gala looks but one of them she thought people were going to mock her for.
FYI: Rihanna is wearing 267 carats of Bulgarian jewels, as well as other jewels by Thelma West>.
