On Monday night, fans waited patiently for the 36-year-old Fenty mogul to slay fashion's biggest night.

Unfortunately, RiRi didn't make her long-awaited appearance, leaving the world highly disappointed!

As for why the Diamonds singer opted out of rocking her anticipated fit, PEOPLE confirmed that RiRi canceled at the last minute because she came down with the flu.

Back in April, the billionaire teased that she planned on "keeping it real simple this year."

"It's gonna come to what my makeup and what my hair is going to do," the Needed Me singer explained at the time.

RiRi further teased fans when she drastically changed her hair from honey-blonde to bubblegum pink.

The pop star has become a fan-favorite at the annual event throughout the years with her iconic fits.

At last year's gala, Rihanna and her partner, rapper A$AP Rocky, stunned in wedding-inspired fits, with the fashion mogul rocking a white dress by Valentino complete with an epic train.
