Rihanna is, Once Again, Queen of the Met Gala

It's not easy being a fashion icon. At every major event, the masses await your arrival hoping you'll elevate the typically boring red carpet. The pressure must be immense.

Somehow Rihanna, our Bajan beacon of light, consistently delivers. While so many others default to "pretty" and "sexy," she gives us "memorable."

Her look for the Costume Institute Gala (aka Met Gala) was a revelation. Not only did she nail the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between theme in Comme des Garçons, but she made highly structured couture look effortless.
The ensemble, taken straight from the fall 2016 runway, was aided by perfectly suited hair and makeup.

This makes two years in a row for Rihanna, whose Guo Pei cape from the 2016 gala is still being discussed. If anyone else hopes to dominate the legendary bash held every year on the first Monday in May, they'd better get to work now.
