A picture is worth a thousand memes.
Last night at the Met Gala, the event where celebs dress up like the characters from the Capitol in The Hunger Games, Rihanna’s 13.1-mile long dress stole the show, and the internet could barely talk about anything else afterwards.
From Dorothy and her crew trying to follow the Yellow Brick Road on Rihanna’s train, or the singer’s dress turning into a pizza, Rihanna’s getup was tinkered with by people with some real Photoshop skills who got very creative in order to create some great visual gags.
It’s nice for this outfit to get some exposure, too; it was handmade over two years by the Chinese designer Guo Pei.
I’m glad we as a society have moved on from arguing about what colors a dress is, and can start debating which joke about a dress was best instead.
Without further ado, here are some of the internet’s best memes of RiRi’s dress.
Can we take this to go?
Tale as old as time (oh na na), song as old as rhyme (come on, come on), Rihanna and the Beast.
Rihanna derives energy from the eternal flame of Sarah Jessica Parker’s headpiece.
Do you think that Rihanna would ever get a tattoo of Radar?
Crack an egg on your head, let the Rihanna spill out.
OOOOOH WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA? ROBYN! RIHANNA! FENTY!
