Rihanna has been dropping maternity fashion looks left, right and centre in recent moments, and she has now ‘shut down the Met Gala’ - without even attending!
While the likes of Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were all serving looks on the red carpet, the Wild Thoughts singer, 34, was transformed into a marble statue.
Rihanna took to Instagram on Tuesday to showcase her pregnancy sculpture, which was depicted in the Met Museum’s Greco-Roman galleries, and wrote: “Shut down the Met in marble! what’s more gilded than that?
“Lol! Thank you @metmuseum and @voguemagazine for this historic tribute! y’all bad for this one!”
Vogue Magazine then took to the social media site to explain how the Greek goddess Eirene is usually the featured statue in the gallery, but they have since reinstated Eirene with Rihanna in honour of the star.
They wrote: “The statue of ‘Eirene (The Personification of Peace)’ is usually the highest-profile marble goddess @themetmuseum Greco-Roman galleries. But now we’ve got @badgalriri, straight off this month’s Vogue cover.”
However, it doesn’t seem like her statue will be a permanent fixture in the museum and instead appeared to be created through CGI.
Tyla has contacted the Met Museum and Vogue for a comment.
To fans dismay, the icon didn't attend the fashion event as she's in her third trimester of her pregnancy. She recently revealed to Vogue that while she doesn't want to 'slow down' now that she's on the brink of motherhood, she still has 'businesses that aren't going to run themselves."
Elsewhere, Rihanna was forced to defend her maternity style after causing controversy with her ‘indecent’ outfit at Paris Fashion Week.
Back in March, the singer-turned-fashion-icon turned heads she strutted her stuff at the Dior show in a sheer lace, mesh dress by the fashion house, which was paired with a clearly visible Savage X Fenty G-string from her own line, of course.
At the time, the singer’s fans praised the star for showing all while pregnant and looking amazing while she did it.
However, her fashion-come-political statement outfit did receive some backlash, with some onlookers stating her sheer dress was an ‘indecent’ affair. Read more on that here.
