That Edge Though

Tessa Thompson swung into action on the 2021 Met Gala red carpet. The dress was one of Iris van Herpen's works of art. As you can see, it was an intricately designed piece with a futuristic edge, including a combination of metallics, lace, and some translucent fabrics.

The "Thor: Ragnarok" star paired the flowy dress with a pair of knee-high boots that almost resembled something out of a western flick, except for the tiny heel. She was accessorized with minimal jewelry and a black woven cowboy hat. The whole look was simple but, at the same time, complex, so we've got to give it to the star for managing to pull something like that off.

Getting Cozy on the Red Carpet

Has Rihanna ever had a bad moment on the red carpet? We'll leave that to you to decide. In 2021, when the star was accompanied by her partner A$AP Rocky at the Met Gala, there were a lot of mixed reviews about the pair's attire on that night. Rihanna wore an all-black Balenciaga number (which sparked rumors of a hidden baby bump under the poofy gown), but it was Rocky's technicolor ERL quilt that got the whole world talking.

Not only did "Fashion Killa" himself outshine the queen on the red carpet, but he did so with a multicolored blanket that looked like it was stolen from his grandmother's house. But hey, if his ability to outdo "bad girl Riri" on her own turf isn't worthy of a round of applause, then we don't know what is.
