It's safe to say we were certain the Met Gala's Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination theme would give us some insane fashion moments. But we weren't fully prepared for the sexy-pope vibes Rihanna just brought to the red carpet—and neither was Twitter.
Her Maison Margiela three-piece silver embellished separates, complete with a pope headpiece, definitely had heads turning (and fingers typing). The general consensus: Rihanna is the qween of the Met Gala, this year, and every year. And this lewk in particular? Goddess-level. See the best reactions from Twitter, below.
