Rihanna stole the show at the 2015 Met Gala by arriving in a long and luxurious cape. The yellow fabric features an embroidered design on the satin exterior and a soft, plush lining.

The excessive fabric trailing in her wake isn’t the only thing making Rihanna look like royalty. Atop her head is a crown-like, golden hairpiece that glistens in the light. Her pointed, silver pumps give an edgy touch to the attention-grabbing ensemble.
