Rihanna shines at New York Met Gala

The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the star-studded event in the freaky layered gown, which featured three different floral patterns, each printed on their own poofy layer of fabric.

There is but one rule when it comes to sticking the landing of a Met Gala red carpet look - and it has nothing to do with aspirations of "Best Dressed".

Barbadian superstar Rihanna wowed on the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in NY, the society fundraiser dubbed "the party of the year" that gathers the world's most famous faces in film, fashion and music.

From Beyonce's feathered ombré gown to Rihanna's canary yellow, fur-trimmed cape, every year the most avant-garde garb makes its way up the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and this year was no exception. The event celebrated one of fashion's most boundary-breaking figures, so to see Kendall, one of her industry's fastest-rising young stars, opt for a dress from lingerie brand La Perla was a missed opportunity. Rihanna's costume-y Comme des Garçons had the paparazzi going into a tizzy and Zendaya narrated a striking print story in her Dolce & Gabbana.

Pharrell Williams arrived in a pair of ripped Comme des Garcons jeans and a leather jacket.

Speaking of weddings, many users on Twitter saw numerous references to Game of Thrones, particularly the infamous Red Wedding from the HBO TV series, in Katy Perry's Met Gala look.

The annual event serves as a benefit for the Costume Institute.

"[My favorite Met Gala memory is] the bathroom selfie we all do", the star added.
