Rihanna rocks red carpet in white
NEW YORK (AP) – Bajan superstar Rihanna was the belle of the ball in her Stella Macartney white gown at the Met Gala last night.
Rihanna’s below-the-breast tattoo peeked out from under a white midriff top with a high jewelled neck and pointy padded shoulders, worn with a matching long pleated skirt that had a fold over at the rear.
There were stunners, snoozers and bummers at the Met Gala, the former led by Sarah Jessica Parker, Karolina Kurkova and Sarah Silverman in stunning princess ball gowns and the latter led by, well, many.
Black and white ruled the evening Monday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in honour of a new Costume Institute exhibit showing off the classic work of designer Charles James.
Parker’s hair was high for her walk up the elegant staircase as she channelled James in black bodice, long white gloves and full gown by Oscar de la Renta. The designer even signed the look in red at the bottom of the back hem.
Silverman wore a classic strapless silhouette in maroon by Zac Posen and Kurkova was in a soft blue, tiered gown with floral touches from Marchesa.
The Jamesian black-and-white colour combos were joined by pops of yellow: Thank you, Olivia Munn, in low-cut Diane von Furstenberg, Jourdan Dunn in custom Topshop and a floral from Carolina Herrera on Emmy Rossum.
Reese Witherspoon added some hot pink in a simple, strapless Stella McCartney.
Beyonce was in a low-cut beaded black with a veil, joined by hubby Jay Z in the white jacket donned by many of the guys, including some who went for tails.
Kim Kardashian wore a belted Lanvin dress in midnight blue and black with Lanvin shoes and accessories.
