·1 min read

Better late than never, right? At least that's the case for Rihanna, who showed up to the Met Gala 2021 oh-so fashionably late.

Fresh off the heels of filming for her Savage x Fenty Vol. 3 show, the billionaire beauty and music mogul arrived at the Met Gala just after 10:00 pm (red carpet began at 5:30 pm!) wearing Balenciaga.

Her look was well worth the wait, though, as RiRi rocked a voluminous black cape-gown with dramatic shoulders and a black knit beanie over a layered diamond hairpiece and matching necklace. She completed the look with her signature dark lip, strappy black sandals, and a lavender pedicure.

Her previous Met Gala looks have included an unforgettable yellow fur-trimmed cape in 2015, and her headline-making Pope-inspired dress and headpiece in 2018.

Thanks for keeping us on our toes, Rihanna.
