Rihanna made a triumphant return to the red carpet this evening during the 'The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion' Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala in New York City.
Rocking Dolce & Gabbana black capri pants and a black, strong-shouldered jacket, Rihanna happily posed for photographers, but refused to do interviews with reporters.
It's Rihanna's first red carpet appearance since she was allegedly assaulted by boyfriend Chris Brown back in February. And boy does she look good!
The Gala is considered the social event of the season, and only the crème de la crème of celebrities are invited. Star like Madonna, Kate Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Gisele Bundchen, Anne Hathaway, Eva Longoria, Jessica Biel, and Victoria Beckham are among some of the stars that made their way down the fabulous red carpet.
