Rihanna felt like a ‘clown’ in her iconic yellow 2015 Met Gala dress

Even Rihanna has fashion insecurities.

The pop star and makeup mogul, 32, was instantly crowned the best-dressed guest at the 2015 Met Gala when she hit the red carpet in a show-stopping yellow dress by Chinese designer Guo Pei. Featuring fur trim and a football field-sized train, the couture creation is arguably one of her most iconic looks of all time.

But during an “Access Hollywood” interview to promote her new Fenty Skin line on Wednesday, Rihanna revealed that the outfit presented plenty of problems at the star-studded affair.

“That night, the choreography of getting in the car and getting out, like, we had to choreograph it,” she began. “Who sits at the door? Where does the coat go? Where do I sit?”

Continued the bad gal, “I remember being so scared to get out of that car because I felt like, ‘I’m doing too much.’ I was driving past the red carpet, and I was just seeing, like, gowns, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m a clown. People are going to laugh at me. This is like, too much.’ I thought that. I circled like, three times, I’m not even joking. And finally, I was like, ‘Whatever, let’s go. Let’s just go. Let’s just go.’ I know. I don’t regret it.’”

Of course, it all worked out, further cementing Rihanna’s status as a style icon and birthing countless memes.

“The frying pan with the egg? Legendary, legendary,” the superstar recalled.
