Pop sensation Rihanna, who is expecting her first child with rapper-boyfriend A$AP Rocky, could not attend the Met Gala this year but she still managed to steal the show on the fashion’s biggest night.

The singer made an impact as a marble statue was seemingly unveiled at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. With a floral pattern from chest to toe and the baby bump being the highlight.

The singer took to Twitter and thanked the museum and Vogue magazine for paying her a historic tribute. She posted a glimpse of her statue in which she is seen flaunting her baby bump. “Shut down the met in marble! what’s more gilded than that? Lol! Thank you for this historic tribute! y’all bad for this one,” she wrote.

Given this year's theme of Gilded Glamour, the statue was made to pay a tribute to not only RiRi but also the Greek goddess of peace, Eirene. Meanwhile, Vogue unveiled the legendary statue in a video they posted on Instagram with the caption, "The statue of ‘Eirene (The Personification of Peace)’ is usually the highest-profile marble goddess @themetmuseum Greco-Roman galleries. But now we’ve got @badgalriri, straight off this month’s Vogue cover."
