Pop singer Rihanna, now 27, most certainly looked like real royalty as she came at Chinese-themed Met Ball Gala bash that took place in New York on Monday evening.
The Bajan-lasy literally ‘closed’ the red carpet for others when came in a huge yellow gown – designed by Chinese couture designer Guo Pei. It left no space for others. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute had spread out the carpet for the who’s who of fashion world, but the singer really took up a great space.
The huge creation sported by Rihanna featured a fur-trimmed yellow cape along with floral swirls of gold as well as a train so long it needed three wranglers. Under the dress was a tiny pink colored mini-dress as well as a tiara on her head.
Shimmery gold and deep reds have dominated as the masses of invited celebs embraced the inspiration this year: the great Met exhibition China: Through the Looking Glass, a grand look at fashion from East through ages.

Gossip magazines are buzzing with the fact that Rihanna is dating actor Leonardo DiCaprio, but Rihanna has something to add to that Recently, the singer was asked the question by a leading magazine that asked, ‘how does Rihanna DiCaprio sound to you?’
In reply, the twenty seven year old singer suggested staying away from the blogs because they will screw you every time. Well, her comments come after Leonardo’s spokesperson also talked the rumors as just being rumors. He told a leading LA based newspaper that he is single and had been for some time.
Rihanna told that the reason she does not have a man on her arm at the moment is because she is so short on time. She is very busy at this point of time that she just does not have a lot of time to offer to a man so it would not even be fair to be thinking of pulling somebody else into this life. But if she did, he has to be man enough to live with her schedule and not get scared about the relationship.

It is a clear victory for the Barbadian singer, fashion designer and actress as she goes on to win the legal battle against a store for featuring her photo on a t-shirt without her permission to do the same. The pop star sued Arcadia, the parent company of Topshop for $5m (£3.3m) in 2013 for featuring a photo of hers on a sleeveless t-shirt that was taken in 2011, during a video shoot.
There was a lot of controversy in this regard. Rihanna’s lawyer had mentioned that the unauthorized photograph had been taking while the star was featuring for a video in Northern Ireland in 2011. He even mentioned that a ban should be put on Topshop for exploiting her image and reputation.
