Rihanna turned heads and made headlines at last week’s 2017 Met Gala with a gloriously flamboyant and bold piece by Comme des Garçons. Today, however, the world can’t stop talking about one of the pop star’s youngest fans who recreated the instantly iconic look with what appears to be crafting materials.

Twitter user @freddyamazin posted the photo after he spotted something ‘amazin’ in this little girl and her outfit, captioning the photo “she dressed up as Rihanna at the Met Gala.” Yeah she did!
This little girl, a model for Toddlewood, is absolutely nailing this miniature version of Riri’s designer look! And not only that, but her perfectly coiffed hair and killer smize are so on point it hurts. Seriously, who wore it better?
It’s a tough, tough call. On the one hand, Rihanna wore it first, and it was an actual Comme des Garcons look on a night inspired by that very brand’s designer Rei Kawakubo. But on the other hand, this little girl used basic arts and crafts materials and what looks like floral fabric. That’s ingenuity! Not to mention the financial benefit to the youngster’s version. Riri’s strappy DSquared2 sandals cost around $1,500, while the red ribbon that the imitator opted for was probably closer to $1.50.
And Rihanna wasn’t the only one to have sparked sartorial inspiration at last week’s Gala. Actress/singer/dancer Zendaya also received some of the most sincere form of flattery, and regrammed it to her account.
Is this going to be a thing now, kids recreating the stars’ best red-carpet looks? Based off the effort put forward by these two little ladies, we certainly hope so.
