Show stopper

Didn’t disappoint! Rihanna stunned at the 2017 Met Gala, where the singer and red carpet mainstay sashayed in a show-stopping outfit that instantly became the talk of social media.

This year’s Met Gala theme was an ode to Commes des Garcons founder Rei Kawakubo, with many of the celebrities in attendance wearing garments both crafted and inspired by the longtime designer who is being honoured by the Costume Institute.


Rihanna opted for an offbeat gown designed by Kawakubo herself, a billowing, formless marvel seemingly constructed out of floral patterns. The singer finished out the look with a pair of heels that laced up the length of her legs.

Other celebrities in attendance for this year’s Met Gala include Courtney Love and daughter Frances Bean Cobain, Katy Perry (who wore a dress by a controversial designer), Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas and many more. (Rolling Stone)

    I agree wid “fed up”, not everything Rihanna wear is gold, confused is the right word, because it’s her people think it’s okay and stylish

    Fed up, these shows are attention getters, it’s in the eyes of a beholder, got yours, mission accomplished.

    You cannot speak for me, you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. No one has me licked up or blinded.

    When I read the article, it stated clearly that “This year’s Met Gala theme was an ode to Commes des Garcons founder Rei Kawakubo.” The celebrities were wearing creations from a particular designer and the one Rihanna wore was the show stopper. If you have a problem with that, deal with it. You may not understand the artistic creativity of others but respect it.

    You are questioning her smartness!!! Why not take a moment and reflect on her success and then look at yours and then conclude who is the smarter. I read and heard some of the hoopla but I am still to hear if there was an official word from Buckingham Palace requesting an apology from Rihanna? If there was, please inform me.

    Every one of us has made mistakes in our lives, did some silly things, some have recovered, some have not and we are still making mistakes as we live. The only difference between us and people like Rihanna is that our lives are more private so our stuff gets hidden, whereas theirs is broadcasted and there is much ridicule from those of us whose stuff is hidden. Just move on, Rihanna is still rolling in the dough!!!

    It was a THEMED event. Rhianna and others dress very avant garde.

    • Coralita May 2, 2017 at 5:42 pm

      Exactly Kevin, it was a themed event and the designer was being honoured by the COSTUME INSTITUTE. If Rihanna had dressed differently, would she had fitted in with the theme?

      These folks up in here seemed to be missing that.

      When you read their comments, you get the impression Rihanna had some event to attend and decided to put on the costume in question to attend. Now how silly is that?

      People please read with some measure of understanding.

    So Barbados Today deletes people’s comments because they question their use of the English Language. Very unprofessional.

    There was a Bajan Queen but it was sunk! Someone should do the same with this current BQ!
