Rihanna is on a roll this week. The singer stunned in an all-white Stella McCartney ensemble at the Met Gala on Monday night. The floor-grazing frock (if you can call it that) showcased her midriff and bare back. She complemented the outfit with a wild updo and white pointy d’Orsay pumps from Christian Louboutin. Suffice it to say that Ri-Ri scored a perfect hit with the attire; she was, in fact, one of the best-dressed gals of the night.

While we didn’t get a good look at her shoes, here’s a peek at the d’Orsays Rihanna reportedly wore. They’re the “Iriza,” a very classic and ladylike style with 4-inch-tall self-covered heels and pointy toes.

Here’s the thing, though — while the singer looked impeccable at the gala, she turned quite a few eyebrows with the dress she wore to the Met after-party. Ri-Ri changed into a bronzy slip-like dress, also from McCartney, with an extremely low-cut back, low enough to actually show a section of her butt crack, er, cleavage.
This, we believe, was intentional. After all, the exotic beauty is no stranger to baring it all, judging from her latest magazine cover, wherein she posed topless. Let’s also not forget the time she exposed her breasts wearing only a sheer top at the Balmain after-party during Paris Fashion Week in February.
Now, back to Rihanna’s Met after-party dress, we hear she finished the outfit with equally bronzy pointy pumps from Christian Louboutin, the “So Kate.”
As you know, the So Kate pumps are extremely high. They feature 5-inch-tall self-covered heels and lowered vamps to expose more of the feet. While very sexy to look at, these shoes can be a pain to manage if you’re not “well-heeled.”
In any case, we’re pretty sure Rihanna had no issues wearing her So Kate shoes at the party. You have to admit, though, save for the overly low-cut back detail of her bronze dress, Rihanna’s fashion and footwear choices for the whole Met event (ball and after-party) were very much on-point. Do you agree?
