Rihanna and Asap Rocky make eye-catching Met Gala appearance

The music stars were fashionably late for the New York soiree.

Rihanna and Asap Rocky made an eye-catching appearance at the Met Gala, bringing winter chic to the carpet.

The couple were the final celebrities to walk the carpet, according to Vogue, and turned heads in striking outfits.

Pop superstar and businesswoman Rihanna, 33, wore a black, over-sized coat dress, featuring a high collar and flared hem.

She completed the look with a matching hat.

Fans on social media had feared she would not make the event, despite it being announced she was hosting an after-party.

This year’s Met Gala theme was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.

Rihanna, who has been dating Asap Rocky since last year, is a regular Met Gala attendee.

In 2018, when she was a co-chair, she wore a papal-inspired outfit for the theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
