On Sunday night, the pop/fashion/makeup icon decided to skip the red carpet. But as she and Kendrick Lamar accepted Best Rap/Sung Performance for their song “LOYALTY,” Rihanna stepped out in a gleaming oxblood outfit by Alexandre Vauthier made entirely of latex—and we mean everything: thigh-high boots, off-the-shoulders trench coat, and gloves.
But while Rihanna may have slacked some jaws in the audience, nothing compares to the reception she got on Twitter. As soon as viewers spied the singer in her show-stealing dress, the gobsmacked responses started coming in. A few users made note of the outfit’s spring-cleaning potential, but for the most part, people just reacted the way they usually do to RiRi’s fashion: with awe. Quite the feat in a night filled with Twitter-wowing looks.
