RIHANNA has stunned fans with her Met Gala red carpet look.

Fenty queen Rihanna, 30, brought the red carpet to a standstill at the 2018 Met Gala – as she blew viewers away with her incredible Pope-inspired ensemble.

The theme of this year’s Gala was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” – and the Take A Bow songstress took the motif to a whole new level, with a crystal-embellished Maison Margiela dress complete with mitre-style hat and matching jacket.

Taking her crown as queen of the Met Gala, the singer beamed as she posed for photos at the star-studded event, her minimal smokey make-up and dramatically bleached eyebrows keeping all eyes on her drastic ensemble.

The Man Down singer completed her sensational look with a pearl anklet and bejewelled crucifix necklace.

The make-up guru is now renowned for her phenomenal looks at the annual event, last year wearing a gown completely covered in three-dimensional petals for the theme “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”

In 2015, she embraced the theme “China: Through The Looking Glass” with a yellow fur-lined dress complete with 16-foot train by Chinese designer Guo Pei.

Rihanna, who co-chaired the event alongside Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace and Anna Wintour, definitely caused a fuss amongst fans – who were simply flawed by her daring look.

“Once again Rihanna is the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  #METGala,” one wrote, while another gushed: “Rihanna could wear a single piece of tape and it’d still be the best thing I’d ever seen.”

“I live to see a female pope. In @rihanna’s name, we pray, wo-men! #MetGala2018,” a third chimed in.
