Zendaya is well known for bringing her A-game on the red carpet, so it came as no surprise that she was one of the best dressed attendants at this year’s Met Gala. In fact, Zendaya’s Dolce & Gabbana gown was so gorgeous, it even caught the attention of Rihanna.
The “Work” singer took to her Instagram shortly after this year’s festivities to show off more than a few photos of her immaculate Comme des Garcons number, but there was only one other celeb she chose to give a bit of love to on the photo sharing site.
RiRi took to Instagram on Tuesday (May 2) to share a stunning photo of Zendaya making her way up the Met stairs. It seems the K&C Undercover star made it to the top of Rihanna’s best dressed list for the night.
It didn’t take long for Zendaya herself to take note of the post, and the actress was quick to reply to RiRi’s post.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over, I appreciate you so much,” commented Zendaya on the post, according to Elle.
Zendaya’s fangirl moment over Rihanna showing her and her Met Gala gown some serious love didn’t stop there though.
Shortly after, the actress posted a video to let her fans in on just how much she was freaking out over Rihanna’s compliment.
“So…Rihanna just posted me. I repeat. This is not a drill. This is real,” said Zendaya in a video that was captured by the The Shade Room. “Guys, I’m going through it right now. I don’t know what to do. I never thought a post could mean so much to me in all my life.”
Here’s hoping these two awesome ladies find the time to meet up in person one day— something tells us their hang out session would be pretty legendary!
