Fashion fans may still be debating who really had the best look of the night at the 2017 MET Gala, but the same can’t be said for Lady Gaga. In fact, the “Perfect Illusion” singer has already weighed in on who she thinks was the best dressed at this year’s fête.
Though Gaga was notably absent from this year’s festivities, she took to Twitter early Tuesday (May 2) morning to praise none other than Rihanna for her captivating MET Gala look.
“Best dressed in my humble opinion was @rihanna,” tweeted Gaga along with a well placed fire emoji. “Captured the spirit of the night & emotion of #Kawakubo #CommeDesGarcons.”
As MTV News points out, Rihanna was one of the few attendees who actually wore a piece by Rei Kawakubo, the designer being honored by the Costume Institute.
Not only did Riri pull the unique dress off perfectly, but it’s clear she also won some major brownie points with Gaga, who also happens to be a huge fan of Commes des Garcons. In fact, Mother Monster used her tweet to remind everyone that she’s rocked quite a few CDG pieces herself over the years.
Though we’ve got a laundry list of favorite looks from the 2017 MET Gala, we’ve got to side with Gaga on this one and give it up for Rihanna!
The “Work” singer has rocked her fair share of memorable outfits over the years, but we’ve got a feeling this one will go down in history as one of her most iconic red carpet appearances.
