About

Rihanna's Grammy Dress refers to a pink, puffy gown worn by the American pop singer Rihanna during the red carpet ceremony at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on February 8th, 2015. The wardrobe quickly became widely mocked online and spawned a series of photoshopped parodies on Twitter.

Origin

On February 8th, 2015, Rihanna entered the red carpet ceremony at the Grammy Awards in a pink haute couture dress designed by Italian fashion couturier Giambattista Valli. That evening, Twitter user @CalandCo[1] tweeted a picture of the pop star posing on the red carpet juxtaposed next to a photograph of a pink loofah sponge (shown below).

Spread

Several minutes later, the Latina Magazine Twitter feed[2] posted a tweet comparing Rihanna's dress to a Dominican cake topper (shown below). In 48 hours, the tweet gained over 1,000 retweets and 680 favorites. On February 9th, Redditor stdfreeithink submitted a screenshot of the tweet to the /r/BlackPeopleTwitter[10] subreddit, where it gathered more than 940 votes (95% upvoted) within 24 hours.
