Rihanna’s Met Gala Dress Could Swallow Someone Whole Tonight

While Kim Kardashian and Beyonce coincidentally duked it out over who had the best diamond-studded derriere at The Met Gala, Rihanna went a completely different direction, one which every blog tomorrow will be calling either “The Belle Of the Ball” or “Prelude to a Fried Egg.” Whatever the inspiration is, the gown is stunning, has a completely impractical train that comfortably outfit an entire town, and looks a little bit like a lion from far away.

Here are a few photos of the dress in action:

That train’s got to be removable, right? I know very little about wearing dresses, but I can just imagine the incredible number of injuries that could be sustained by women in heels (and men in lifts) tripping over it and then just tumbling down the stairs. Actually, that might make a good story. Keep the train on, Riri.
