Pix: Why co-host Rihanna is Met Gala's real star

Last updated on: May 08, 2018 13:06 IST

The pop singer once again ruled the annual charity gala.

Be it Coachella or Met Gala, Rihanna knows how to pull all stops and make heads turn on and off the red carpet.

With her latest turn on the red carpet, she's the reigning queen of Met Gala (short for Metropolitan).

Check out some of her most sensational met Gala outings so far:

For this year's annual fundraising event, the pop singer and show's co-host wore a white beaded Margiela corset mini dress with a skirt. She finished her look with a pearl anklet and a bejeweled crucifix necklace. Photograph: Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

For the theme 'China: Through the looking glass,' in 2015, Rihanna pulled out this yellow fur-trimmed by Chinese designer Guo Pei. The red carpet look became the stuff of trolls and memes with many comparing the dress to an omelette. Photograph: Getty Images
