The Met Gala is the highlight of the fashion calendar, and Rihanna’s outfit fit the theme perfectly.
And with ground-breaking Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakuboas named as this year’s theme, the famed fund-raiser provided plenty of spectacle.
The Tokyo-based designer has been deemed worthy of the solo focus of this year’s gala – which inaugurates the museum’s eagerly-awaited accompanying exhibit of her label.

It is the first time the gala and exhibit has focused on one living designer since 1983, when it highlighted the work of Yves Saint Laurent.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour co-chairs the gala, joined by Katy Perry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen and Pharrell Williams.
Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, told AP that Kawakubo is considered the world’s ‘most important and influential designer’ of the moment and ‘has consistently defined and re-defined the aesthetics of our time.’

Known for bold, experimental clothing, Kawakubo’s designs have an austere aesthetic and a cult following.
The 74-year-old officially founded her cerebral design house in 1973 to critical acclaim – and was dubbed ‘anti-fashion’ for challenging the notions of beauty with her innovative aesthetic.
Comme des Garcons has been showing collections in Paris each season since 1981.
The Metropolitan Museum in New York – where the annual gala is held – is displaying 120 Comme des Garçons womenswear designs by Kawakubo, spanning the past 35 years, since her first Paris show.
