Want to know all the deets on Rihanna’s showstopping look last night at the MET BALL? Peep the interviews of Rihanna dishing deets on her Chinese couture look and an awkward exchange with Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet inside….
It’s safe to say Rihanna literally shut the red carpet down at this year’s Met Gala with her dramatic train and bold hue. And now, the Pop princess is dishing deets on the Guo Pei ensemble, which fit the “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme perfectly and literally had everyone in awe. It was amazing.
Before heading inside the gala, the Bajan beauty chopped it up with VOGUE contributing editor Andre Leon Talley and revealed her Guo Pei robe and crystal-embellished headpiece took two years to make! She spilled,
“It was a miracle how it happened actually. I saw this beautiful piece on the Internet. I was researching Chinese couture and it’s made by Guo Pai. It’s so well designed. It’s handmade by one Chinese woman. It took two years to make this.”
It was definitely worth it. She nailed it. Peep her interview below:
While Rih slayed the carpet, her friends Melissa, Jenn and Ciarra weren’t far behind. They were spotted snapping cellphone flicks like “proud parents” in their ride:

Following her red carpet appearance and performance inside, Rih trekked it to her after party at Up & Down where her lady lumps were front and center for the cameras due to a convenient temporary wardrobe malfunction. Typical Rih.
Peep a few more flicks of Rih’s look below:

Back on the red carpet….
Rockstar Lenny Kravitz reunited with his ex-wife Lisa Bonet on the Met Gala red carpet Monday night. And before heading inside the twosome caught up with Andre Leon Talley for one very awkward interview.
Lisa Bonet did not say ONE word. Not one. And appeared to be in a daze so to speak. As Andre and Lenny chopped it up, she just stood there. We’re wondering if she just wasn’t in the mood to talk or if Andre’s comments about her dress may have rubbed her the wrong way. Either way, it was awkward. Check it above.
