Open your calendar app. It's February 20, which means it's Robyn Rihanna Fenty's birthday, which, for some inexplicable reason, is not a federal holiday. Our Pisces queen turns 32 today, and to celebrate this annual occasion, we've rounded up *the* best Rihanna style looks for your scrolling pleasure. Take a moment on this special day to enjoy RiRi eye candy.
Met Gala, 2018
Every year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, or the Met, hosts a gala to benefit the museum's costume department. Stars turn up in their craziest looks, but absolutely no one does it better than Rihanna. In 2018, the theme was Catholic costume design, and she turned up in a crystal-covered papal hat and cape, all by Maison Martin Margiela. Our jaws were on the FLOOR.
Rihanna is never not a viral star, but this dress became the meme of the year (the escaped llamas were a close second, in my opinion). When she worked the 2015 Grammys red carpet, the internet cracked up, joking that her enormous bubblegum pink Giambattista Valli was the ultimate quinceañera dress.
CFDA Fashion Awards, 2014
Rihanna's style is so incredible, she won an award for literally just getting dressed. The Council of Fashion Designers of America, or CDFA, presented her with its annual Fashion Icon Award in 2014. And for the occasion, she dazzled the world with this sheer Adam Selman Swarovski crystal-encrusted gown and cap that paid homage to Josephine Baker. I'm fanning myself just looking at it.
Diamond Ball, 2018
Rihanna also holds the reins to one of the hottest tickets in town: the annual Diamond Ball, which benefits her Clara Lionel Foundation. For the 2018 Ball, she wore this white Alex Mabille creation, which fuses a gown and pantsuit with a giant bow.
Met Gala, 2017
We are, and I mean this in every sense of the word, NOT WORTHY. Rihanna's Met Gala 2017 look isn't just my personal favorite RiRi style moment, it's also her most experimental, her most thrilling, her most risk-taking outfit, and she carries it so easily. She's wearing a piece by Comme des Garçons and it's just ... wow. Truly legendary.
