WEBDESK: Hollywood singer, Rihanna appeared at an international fashion night wearing a 25kg dress.
The canary yellow dress, with fur trim trailed seven feet behind Rihanna at the New York’s Met Gala. The event is organised to raise funds for the city’s Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art’s Costume Institute.
The dress was designed by a Chinese designer Guo Pei.
“When Rihanna first saw the dress, she said ‘it’s so beautiful’, but I wasn’t so sure that she could handle it,” Guo told the BBC.
“It was only after she appeared on the red carpet that she sent an email asking how heavy it was. I told her – 25 kg (55lb). I couldn’t tell her before because I was afraid she’d say she couldn’t wear it.”
Meanwhile critics of the dress on social media claimed that it looked like a giant yellow omelette.
