Rihanna is the queen of red carpets. The singer made heads turn with her recent appearance at the Met Gala 2021, wherein she wore a stunning Balenciaga overcoat and matching hat. Her all-black look was customised by Demna Gvasalia; it comprised voluminous ruffles. She walked in with rumoured boyfriend ASAP Rocky, who also wore a dramatic piece — a quilt-inspired look by ERL.

But, it was a particular accessory of hers which made news.
