It is safe to say that both women regularly manage to steal the spotlight on red carpets with their eccentric looks regardless of how different their styles are. This time around, however, Rihanna decided to playfully shade none other than Helena Bonham Carter while on The Graham Norton Show yesterday and it was about her fashion choice.
While promoting the movie they star in together alongside Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, and Sarah Paulson, Ocean’s 8, Rihanna could not help but throw some shade at Helena after the actresses were asked if they were in attendance at the Met Gala this year.
‘I have not,’ Carter simply replied, triggering RiRi’s sassy response.
‘That’s ’cause you wear dresses like that,’ the singer said, pointing at her wild patterned silk dress.
Helena Bonham Carter tapped Rihanna on her shoulder as she burst out laughing, obviously, not offended by the shade.
‘That’s right, that’s entirely right. I am going to cry now,’ she joked.

The actress has always been very confident about how she dresses, reason for which she wears whatever she wishes unapologetically.
Back in 2011, she told Grazia that ‘I love fashion and I love to have fun with it…I do not care what anyone else thinks. I dress the way I want to, not for anyone else.’
Meanwhile, Rihanna is often in attendance at the annual fashion event and thanks to all of her unique looks, people are always looking forward to seeing her red carpet fashion.
Back in 2015, the singer wore a long yellow Guo Pei dress robe that caused many memes, one, in particular, comparing it to an omelet.
Now, while on the show, Carter and the other Ocean’s 8 co-stars teased Rihanna about the iconic ‘yellow situation.’
‘I got a stretch limo, girls…the garment-‘ she started before Paulson interrupted her: ‘The omelet.’
‘Yeah, the omelet. I put it in the car first and then I had to put it on in the car…the train actually had to come out first so that I was not like, dragging it out.’
‘You must have had some handmaidens,’ Carter joked.
