She famously collaborated with Coldplay on the hit track Princess Of China.
And pop star Rihanna, 27, certainly looked like royalty as she arrived at the Chinese-themed Met Gala bash in New York on Monday night.
The Bajan-beauty quite literally shut down the red carpet in a huge yellow gown – by Chinese couture designer Guo Pei – that left little space for anyone else.
Rihanna’s giant creation featured a fur-trimmed yellow cape with floral swirls of gold and a train so long it required three wranglers.
Underneath the outfit was a little pink mini-dress underneath and a Guo Pei headpiece.
Rihanna revealed to Vogue that the dress was hand made by one woman and it took her two years to make the garb in time for the Gala.
