Rihanna and Natalie Portman crossed paths at the Christian Dior haute couture spring-summer 2024 show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday, and we sure are glad the interaction was caught on camera.

The nine-time Grammy Award-winning artist took the opportunity to gush over how much she adores the Black Swan actress, and Portman was in turn just as an enthralled with meeting Rihanna. After the two women embraced, they exchanged the sweetest words of support for one another. 

“You’re one of the hottest b------ in Hollywood forever,” Rihanna told Portman. “You do the most innocent look and I’m like, ‘ahhhh!’”

“I’m gonna black out,” Portman aptly responded. “I love you and I listen to your music all the time.”

The two superstars then posed for a photograph together, “so, like, I remember this happened tomorrow,” Rihanna quipped of the moment, which quickly went viral.

Tons of fans across social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) have piped in with their own thoughts on the exchange.

“Well, Rihanna just told the truth. Natalie is breathtaking!” one user noted.

“A Queen adjusting another crown,” someone else pointed out.

“i love seeing huge stars fan out over other huge stars it’s so cute,” another person added.

Earlier this month, Jennifer Lopez and Brie Larson shared a similarly heartwarming moment when the Captain Marvel actress met the “Jenny From the Block” singer for the first time on the Golden Globes red carpet. Watch the sweet interaction here.
