The couple finally arrived at the event following speculation on Rihanna's fit and after A$AP Rocky climbed on a woman to get over a crowd.

After a lot of speculation on their outfits, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky finally arrived to the 2023 Met Gala. Of course, they came through with impeccable style and beauty, with the couple usually turning heads for their fits even without a gala as their backdrop. Moreover, RiRi wore a stunning white dress adorned with white flowers all over her, which she even used as a large hood of sorts covering her head. Still, she draped them down afterwards for a more classic yet nonetheless elegant look. Meanwhile, the A$AP Mob frontman dressed in a classic black suit and tie with a white shirt, donning bedazzled jeans as well.

Also, he wore a red flannel skirt over his jeans (as a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld) and showed off various Gucci belts. As some of the most anticipated guests at the event, Rihanna and her boo joined the ranks of astonishing ensembles at the Gala. However, they went viral a little before their arrival for an odd reason. While trying to get past a crowd outside their hotel, A$AP Rocky stepped on a woman's face to climb over the barricade.

Regardless of his desperate measures, the couple's sense of style and their wholesome family dynamic made them one of the most talked-about stars even without being on the red carpet. Not only that, but rumors of Rihanna's potential outfit included claims that she toyed with $25 million worth of Cartier jewels for her fitting. Even though her final fit doesn't seem to feature these prominently, she still rocked a lot of bling. Still, it's about as extravagant and lavish of an idea as we'd expect from the "Diamonds" singer. Maybe that's what A$AP Rocky adorned his jeans with.

Meanwhile, it seems like their luxurious style at the 2023 Met Gala matched nicely with one of the Barbadian singer's most recent huge accomplishments. Furthermore, she officially has her first diamond record in the form of "We Found Love," a collab with Calvin Harris. That was long overdue, but whether it's with diamonds or not, it's clear from her artistry and looks that she has a lot more to shine with.
