Rihanna Traded Her Met Ball Cape For A Poncho

On Monday, Rihanna bravely showed up for the Met Ball, a black-tie event hosted by Anna Wintour, wearing a show-stopping cape. At first glance, it appeared that the singer was wearing nothing but a robe. Later photos indicated that Rihanna was indeed wearing a jumpsuit underneath, but nonetheless, outerwear as outfit is starting to look like the star's signature.  Rihanna has a long track record of wearing things in an unorthodox way (like tuxedo jackets and silk pajamas in lieu of red carpet gowns), and she continued that streak yet again when she stepped out wearing a poncho this week. Like, only a poncho. There were some Timbs involved, as well as a whole bunch of bling. But, accessories aside, she unabashedly wore a poncho as a mini-dress. And, it totally worked. The next time you get the I-have-nothing-to-wear woes, just look to your girl Riri. Grab your poncho, slip on some work boots, and raid your costume jewelry drawer. Just don’t forget your undergarments…
