Rihanna is known for her show-stopping looks from the annual Met Gala over the years; she has graced the carpet in spectacular designs that have always embodied the theme.

Rihanna is known for her over the top dressing and, that’s why when attending red carpets, she opts for maximalism styles, while attending the 2017 Thousand Planets movie premiere in Los Angeles, she opted for a Giambattista Valli pink gown (see above) with an off the shoulder neckline and puff sleeves and a beautiful train.

Another iconic pink look from Rihanna is from the 2015 Grammy awards, where she went on to win the best rap collaboration for her song Monster with Eminem. She wore a Giambattista Valli gown with extreme ruffles and silver detailing.
