This morning, countless fans saw the Rihanna Met Gala dress flood their Twitter and Instagram feeds. From its pizza memes to its comparisons to a scrambled egg breakfast, the couture piece is already a viral sensation. Never one to be subtle, Rih stunned fashion fans with a handmade gown that embodied a regal quality. The dress was displayed in an imperial yellow hue and featured an oversized cape train that was trimmed with lush fur.

The red carpet look was paired with a leafy, gold headdress and was an homage to the Met Gala's Chinese-inspired theme. When interviewed by Vanity Fair, Rihanna explained the inspiration behind her one-of-a-kind look. The dress is designed by Guo Pei and was crafted by one Chinese artisan who worked to perfect it for years.

After some internet research and persistence, the Rihanna Met Gala dress was born and tailored to fit the star's curves. Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying that the look has everyone talking.
