The annual jett-set event, which was set to be held on Monday, May 4, was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak. Rihanna is among a list of other celebrities whose Met Gala red carpet looks have been “leaked” online. Barbadian pop star’s stylist Jahleel Weaver is said to have “shared” the apparent outfit she was meant to sport on the red carpet.

The magnificent ball gown, featuring an entirely embellished bodice and shoulder pads, ran all the way down to the ground. There was a matching crown head-piece to go with the rest of the outstanding dress.
Many fans replied to the tweet and demanded Rihanna to wear it at some point so they could see what she looks like in the elegant gown. Some were still unconvinced: “So what is the truth??”, after seeing other pictures of the same dress credited to a different designer.
