Last night was the the Met’s Costume Institute Gala (yet ANOTHER excuse for really wealthy, famous A-listers to dress up and then congratulate themselves for dressing up), and aside from Madonna‘s Wackadoo Bo Peep Redux outfit, the post-Met Gala talk today was about Rihanna’s official return to the public spotlight — and the red carpet.
Rihanna, who also performed two songs with Kanye West at the Met Costume Gala, refused to do any press and her she-tux — and her mere presence — speak for itself.
But what did Rihanna’s man-glam outfit say about her? My take: Rihanna in menswear says that she’s a strong enough woman to embrace her masculine side, with a healthy dose of style, of course. (She also may be Annie Lennox fan. And I’d be remiss not to point out that Rihanna was basically totally copping Janelle Monae’s man-glam steeze.
What did you think of Rihanna’s gender-bending tuxedo look at the Met Costume Gala?
Appropriately, watch Beyonce’s “If I Was A Boy.”
