Rihanna can do no wrong at the Met Gala!

Call her the queen of fashion's biggest night, because the 33-year-old singer never disappoints with her Met Ball looks. After missing the 2019 affair, Rihanna arrived to the 2021 celebration at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday in a billowing, black Balenciaga gown with a large, dramatic collar and an ornate, sparkling BVLGARI diamonds.

Boyfriend A$AP Rocky joined the songstress on the carpet at the event, and brought all the color in an sizable wrap cloak that resembled a knitted quilt, a nod to the night's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," an exploration of the nation’s sartorial identity and a deep dive into American ingenuity.

"All American quilt," the 32-year-old rapper told ET's Rachel Smith of his outfit. "It represents America, the culture."

The night out marked the couple's red carpet debut, a relationship milestone they were both excited for. "We were ready," Rihanna told ET.

The gala's accompanying exhibition, which opens Sept. 18, will highlight "everything from the luxe ease of Halston's '70s glamour to Rodarte's ethereal edge and Kerby Jean-Raymond's powerful political vision for Pyer Moss."

Rihanna last made an appearance on the Met stairs in 2018, where she stayed true to the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme. The newly minted billionaire wore a strapless, pearl-and-crystal embellished Margiela Artisanal gown by John Galliano, complete with a matching headpiece reminiscent of a pope's mitre, an elaborately decorated hat.

She also fabulously attended the soiree in 2017, as well as shut down the red carpet in 2015 when she arrived in a couture cape by Chinese designer Guo Pei over a pink dress. That year's theme was "China: Through the Looking Glass."
