Lady Gaga Crowns Rihanna Best Dressed at This Year's Met Gala, Explains Her Absence

According to Lady Gaga, Rihanna was the best dressed at last night's Met Gala. Mother Monster tweeted her approval May 2, the morning after fashion's biggest party of the year. "Best dressed [heart emoji] in my humble opinion was @rihanna" wrote Gaga. She continued the tweet with a fire emoji before commending her peer on "captur[ing] the spirit of the night & emotion of #Kawakubo #CommeDesGarcons." 

Rih amazed on the red carpet, modeling a floral sculpture dress designed by Rei Kawakubo, the founder of Comme Des Garcons and Dover Street Market. Gaga honored the designer by sharing two paparazzi snaps of her wearing the label, as she missed attending the New Yoprk City event. When asked by a Little Monster, "okay but why didn't you go?," the singer responded "filming a [movie camera emoji] but love seeing everyone's beautiful outfits!" Gaga is currently filming her leading performance in the remake of A Star Is Born in LA.
