In case you somehow missed it, Rihanna and her insane golden yellow get-up absolutely owned this year's MET Gala. What better way to honor the singing fashionista's unforgettable ensemble than by dressing up in a Rihanna Met gala Halloween costume? Though bright and extravagant, the look requires surprisingly few pieces to pull it off. You're also guaranteed to be the most fabulous person at any Halloween party, so this is a no brainer.
Rihanna was one of the surprising few who actually wore a Chinese designer at the Met gala to celebrate the evening's "China: Through the Looking Glass" theme, and designer Guo Pei did not disappoint. The Internet was obsessed with her look. Some deemed Riri "a total empress," other reactions to Rihanna's cape likened her look to an omelet, and a plethora of cape-related memes popped up.
Though Pei's luxurious "cape" and incredibly detailed embroidery work are impossible to replicate on a budget, there are still ways to hack the look for Halloween.
Beyond the cape itself, this sexy costume is also full of fun details. For one, there is some serious bling happening on that girl's gorgeous neck! Second, you get to rock a headpiece. If you've never tried one, now is the perfect chance. Lastly, hello bombshell firecracker red body suit!
Feeling inspired? Here's your fool-proof Rihanna Met Gala Halloween costume kit.
1. The Yellow Cape
(Yellow Robe Striped Kimono, $84.65, Etsy)
Or, in this instant, robe. I scanned the cape scene, and I gotta say, they all came off too "superhero" to capture Rihanna's look. This flowy floor length robe is perfect, and bonus points for the fact you might actually add it to your standard wardrobe after!
2. Faux Fur Scarf
(Faux Fur Scarf, $28.50, Etsy)
Her cape might've been line with fur, but this gorgeous faux fur scarf will do the trick perfectly.
(Headpiece, $30.95, Etsy)
Headpieces can get pretty pricey quickly, so I chose this one for it's Rihanna-like glam at a more affordable price.
4. Red Bodysuit
(Rushed Body Suit, $13, American Apparel)
Rock a firecracker red jumpsuit just like Riri!
5. Bedazzled Choker
(Etched Teardrop Choker, $7.90, Forever21)
Last but not least, finish off the look with a gorgeous glamazon choker. Can you believe how crazy similar this one looks to RiH's?
