Y’all having a slumber party?

Um, was there a mass slumber party invite sent to all my best friends that I somehow missed? Because, TBH, that’s the only explanation for why both Lady Gaga and Rihanna have worn pink robes out in public recently. Since my two pals are obviously planning their sleepover outfits without consulting me, it’s only right we discuss whether Gaga or Rih pulled the robe look off better.
Lady Gaga wore her silk robe out yesterday while heading to a surprise performance with Tony Bennett at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City. She paired it, of course, with her preferred wig, a heavy smokey eye, and nude stiletto sandals. The robe has a deep V, which might be impractical for sleeping, but makes for a pretty glamorous dress option.
Rihanna started the trend earlier this spring at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, where she appeared to have rolled in straight from Coachella. Rih’s robe is more open and flowy than Gaga’s, so she wore a satin bodysuit underneath. She wore similarly strappy, nude sandals, so I guess this slumber party is a fancy one. No one ever wears heels at the sleepovers I go to.
Both Gaga and Rih have, IMHO, successfully transitioned a ~lewk~ traditionally reserved for the boudoir to the outside world. The question is, though—who did it better?
