The Met Gala 2021 has returned to New York after nearly two years. The Met Gala on Monday night was a celebration of the Costume Institute’s exhibition “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” and with the return of the Met Gala, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky made sure to make their red carpet debut as a pair. The pair arrived late in style, and their tardiness had certainly caught everyone’s attention.
The duo looked extremely adorable on the red carpet in their blanket coats. The “Diamonds” singer, 33, was accompanied by her beau ASAP Rocky, 32, who was dressed in an all-black Balenciaga ensemble that included a voluminous colourful coat, while her lady love was dressed in an all-black Balenciaga outfit that included a voluminous ruffled coat and matching hat. On the Met stairs, the couple clasped hands and nuzzled softly.
Rihanna and Rocky were first linked in January 2020, after appearing to be pals at the British Fashion Awards just one month earlier. They didn’t go public with their relationship until November 2020, and have been inseparable ever since.
The Barbadian singer’s last Met gala appearance was in 2018, and now after nearly 2 years she attends the Met gala in 2021. Her 2018 look was inspired by the theme of heavenly bodies, as she wore a strapless, crystal-encrusted gown by John Galliano, complete with a matching headpiece inspired by the pope’s mitre. Rihanna and Rocky’s lately appearance at the Met Gala 2021 clearly stole hearts of their fans, and the couple seemed completely in love with one another.
