Rihanna has been slaying the Met Gala for as long as we can remember and though she did not attend this year Vogue celebrated her in the most honorable way.
On Instagram Vogue wrote in their caption:
The statue of “Eirene (The Personification of Peace)” is usually the highest-profile marble goddess @themetmuseum Greco-Roman galleries. But now we’ve got @badgalriri, straight off this month’s Vogue cover.
Rihanna shared the post saying:
shut down the met in marble! what’s more gilded than that? Lol! Thank you @metmuseum and @voguemagazine for this historic tribute! y’all bad for this one!
According to ET Rihanna’s statue shows her wearing the form-fitting bodysuit she rocked on the May cover of Vogue. A post on the magazine’s official Instagram further explained the design process for the beautiful sculpture.
In the May issue of Vogue, Rihanna opened up about her iconic pregnancy style, which she has fully embraced since confirming her happy news in January.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, ‘There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle.’ I’m sorry—it’s too much fun to get dressed up,” she shared. “I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”
“I’m hoping that we were able to redefine what’s considered ‘decent’ for pregnant women,” the singer added. “My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy?”
Rihanna also got sentimental, sharing her hopes for her unborn child. “They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them,” she said. “And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become. Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver.”
