New Delhi: Pop queen Rihanna did it again. Met Gala 2017 in New York on Monday night saw Rihanna rock up in an eye-catching ensemble - an explosion of boldly printed fabric by Comme des Garcons, the fashion label headed by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, who showcased her new women's wear collection Art Of The In-Between at the event. Pink and red were the dominant shades in Rihanna's outfit with occasional splashes of white and blue. Rihanna cranked her look up a notch with dramatic eye make-up and a Samurai-inspired hairdo. Heads turned, and stayed turned. Meanwhile, "I love it. It feels f@#$@ing awesome," Rihanna told Vanity Fair on the Met Gala 2017 red carpet.
