Rihanna has opened up about feeling like a “clown” at the 2015 Met Gala because of how the other guests were dressed.
On Wednesday, the Needed Me singer opened up about her pre-red carpet insecurity while speaking with Access TV.
According to the 32-year-old, who wore a bright yellow Guo Pei haute couture cape gown with a long embroidered train for the gala’s China: Through the Looking Glass theme that year, she remembered feeling afraid to get out of the car because she felt she had overdressed for the fashion event.
“I remember being so scared to get out of that car because I felt like: ‘I’m doing too much,’” she recalled. "I was driving past the red carpet and I was just seeing, like, gowns, and I was like: ‘Oh my god, like, I’m a clown, people are going to laugh at me. This is like too much.’”
“I thought that. I circled like three times, I’m not even joking,” the Fenty founder added.
According to Rihanna, some of her concern stemmed from the sheer size of the yellow cape, which required “choreography”.
“The choreography of getting in the car and getting out, like, we had to choreograph it,” she revealed. “Who sits at the doors? Where does the coat go? Where do I sit?”
Despite feeling overdressed, the singer said she eventually decided “Whatever, let’s just go” and stepped onto the red carpet – adding that she doesn’t “regret it”.
As for the memes that resulted from the yellow outfit, which many compared to a fried egg or omelette, Rihanna called them “legendary”.
Singer Rihanna and LVMH are suspending the singer’s fashion line Fenty after just two years.
Some tweets of actor Kangana Ranaut were deleted on Thursday by Twitter; scores of widows of farmers staged a noisy protest in Yavatmal to slam the Bollywood actress for her "anti-farmer remarks," hit her effigy with shoes.
US pop star Rihanna is facing global outrage on her company Fenty Beauty under the lens in India for sourcing mica from mines in Jharkhand which use child labour.
The delicately drawn picture book, about a young, ginger-haired boy who builds a snowman that magically comes to life, was transformed into an animated film in 1982.
The book maps the UAE’s booming art scene and its leading global position as an artistic and cultural hub and is an unprecedented conversation with the people who have written and continue to write the history of art in the UAE.
The late actress started her artistic life with the Al Rihani Theatrical Troupe, which she joined at the end of the fifties, when she was younger than 20 years old.
