Rihanna Just Nailed the Met Gala 2023 Theme in a ’90s Fendi Coat

Is Rihanna giving us a sneak peek at her potential Met Gala 2023 look? Though we don’t know for sure if the musician and Fenty Beauty founder is attending the gala this year, given that she’s entering the late stages of her pregnancy, she may have given us a clue about what’s on her mind if she does go with her latest outfit.

As noted by Spanish  Rihanna was spotted out and about in Paris with her partner A$AP Rocky in a gray crop top, cargo pants, and a patchwork hooded coat from Karl Lagerfeld’s tenure at Fendi, circa 1999. Lagerfeld worked for the Italian fashion house for more than 50 years alongside his own label and, of course, Chanel.

Rihanna’s coat was a full-length style with an oversized hood covered in patches in shades of terracotta, tan, marigold, sage green, and cream. The coat was originally worn on the Fendi runway by the legendary late model Stella Tennant with a turtleneck sweater and slim blue pants. Rih mixed it up in her own way with the belly-baring crop top, a diamond choker necklace layered with a gold gemstone chain, and a pair of slate gray pointed-toe boots. You can see the photo here.

Lagerfeld’s life and work will be honored at the Met Gala on May 1, 2023. The official theme is “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” and attendees have a lot to work with, given that Lagerfeld also designed for Balmain, Patou, and Chloé. Penélope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel, and tennis star Roger Federer are this year’s cochairs.
