The Internet can be very cruel. So can its celebs.

Rihanna’s fashion sense is often lampooned for how over-the-top she can get, but that’s de rigueur when lace bodysuits and green lipstick are involved. As someone who’s frequently cited by E!’s Fashion Police, you think she would be at least sympathetic to junior fashionistas who look to her for inspiration. 

Sixteen-year-old student Alexis Carter was delighted to discover that her prom would be Hollywood-themed. The look Carter choose? A jumpsuit with flowing sleeves, a plunging neckline, and padded shoulders, worn by Rihanna in the Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2010 Couture Collection. With the help of a family friend, the Baltimore teen rocked a replica on her prom night, recieving plaudits from fellow classmates. 

The following day, pictures of Carter in her bold look began spreading on social media, accompanied by the hashtag #prombat. She was Photoshopped skydiving and on a piece of paper held by the FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. It was inevitable that Rihanna herself would spot it.

Alexis spoke to FoxBaltimore about the singer's tweets: 

"I was very offended," Alexis said of Rihanna's tweets. "Why throw shade on it when you had on the exact same thing. The poses was different but the outfit wasn't."

Just another adventure in the vast playland that is Rihanna’s social media ego. This one doesn’t come with an Instagram warning or deleted account, but it certainly does come with the loss of a loyal fan.
