Menswear Isn't Just for Guys
After a short hiatus from the media, Rihanna emerged in May of 2009 at The MET Costume Institute Gala looking divine and stealing the show in a black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. The unexpected garment commanded attention on the red carpet and left critics applauding Rihanna for her bold fashion choice, complete with dramatic hair and makeup. While a tuxedo is traditionally masculine, the cropped pant legs and puffy jacket sleeves created a more feminine look for Rihanna. She wore the tux with her usual brazen confidence, and menswear was immediately dubbed a trend for females by fashion critics everywhere.
