It should come as no surprise that Vogue selected Rihanna to front its Met Gala 2015 special edition. After all, the outfit was a showstopper that spread across the Internet like wildfire (and fell victim to countless memes). The Guo Pei canary yellow gown and accompanying 12-foot cape was certainly a head-turner and people are still talking about the creation a week later. The songstress is accustomed to going all-out for these events and was even chosen by Vogue for the 2014 edition of the special issue, alongside Beyoncé.
Forum members descended on the thread to kick off a healthy debate. “Not surprising, Rihanna stole the night,” shared HodanChloe the moment the cover surfaced.
“Where can I get this? Rihanna shut down the Met. Kim [Kardashian] and Beyoncé looked like dusty old hags next to her. She certainly deserves this,” added gazebo.
Feeling the same way was RanThe: “I’m not surprised at all that Rihanna is on the cover. She was hands down the best dressed and she was the only A-list celebrity to wear Chinese couture from an actual Chinese designer! Can’t wait to buy my copy.”
TeeVanity was also full of approval echoing, “Made sense they gave her this cover, stunning capture.”
“No surprise at all here. Rihanna was the best look that night!” commented VogueDisciple93 in agreement.
