Rihanna cross dresses at the Costume Gala. What's the mixed message?
In what some observers are calling a provocative fashion statement of female empowerment, Rihanna finally surfaced publicly at the Costume Institute Gala at the Met Museum in New York on Monday night.
She wore a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo that featured enormous puffed sleeves and cropped slim pants.
Is this mannish pantsuit a "Don't You Mess With Me Again" message to Chris Brown? Those huge shoulders are a bit threatening. Even her wide stance seems to be an almost confrontational posture.
Or is it just a PR-style stunt to make her look like she's standing strong and not going back to Brown?
What do you think?
