Is Rihanna a Religion Yet, and Can We Join It?
Rihanna has arrived at the 2018 Met Gala and as we've come to expect, she's well and truly stolen the show. The pop superstar and beauty mogul always makes the most dramatic entrance possible — we'll never forget the enormous yellow gown of 2015 — and her dedication to this year's theme was a clear standout on the red carpet.
Decked out in head-to-toe heavy beading, and wearing a mitre-shaped headpiece, she clearly got the memo on the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and The Catholic Imagination" theme — good thing, since she's a co-chair of the entire event.
People on Twitter were, of course, in raptures.

While we don't think a popehood is on the cards for Rihanna at this point (though stranger things have happened . . . ), we do think she's worthy of bowing down to. She always goes all in with the theme, and we're here for it.
