Fashion is not frivolous, it’s more than a piece of iconography, it’s the only democracy we know, freedom of expression is key and that is art to us. These pieces is a person’s soul worn on the sleeves of others, so when you see art, respect it.
Rihanna has consistently interpreted Met Gala theme into a life art, she does not just put on this clothes as a form of covering or just to honor the theme, she is the theme so she embodies it with all dignity and pride. In 2015, she wore a yellow embroidered fur-lined dress with a 16 foot train by a Chinese couturier names Guo Pei, she made the world know that there is more to Chinese fashion than just dolls, bags and kimonos which was even portraying more of the Japanese culture than the Chinese culture.
This years theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination” it was basically about Catholicism and the Influence of Catholicism on fashion, Rihanna was adorned in a Maison Margiela corset mini dress under a full skirt, with a beaded bishops hat to go with, she also accessorized the outfit with a pearl anklet and a bejeweled crucifix necklace.
Rihanna looked the the female pope Vatican’s never had, she deserves a statue of her own, how can one person be this fashionable perfect. One thing is for sure, fashion is art and it takes someone with a high level of understanding to appreciate it and embody it.
