At a dinner held in her honour by MAC Cosmetics with whom the designer is collaborating with, Pei told The Cut:
"I think it’s really cute! I’m very happy. This dress is very important — if people find this dress interesting and funny, I think it’s great. Rihanna is wearing this dress for entertainment — not for a fashion show."
