You have to hand it to Rihanna - when she commits to a theme, she really commits to a theme.
Basically, her outfit was like something a sexy female pope might wear, complete with beaded pearl and crystal-embellished gown and an actual mitre (pope's hat).
What else can you say, except fair play.....?! And also, Rihanna for Pope, obviously.
