Rihanna changed from her casual VMAs ensemble of a t-shirt and jeans into a tight black dress to party it up at the award show's premier afterparty at the Dream Hotel in NYC last night. Katy Perry, who closed out the festivities with a fierce performance of her new single "Roar" from under the Brooklyn Bridge, reemerged for the bash as well, and although Katy and Rihanna allegedly had a bit of a falling out earlier this year, the pair have since reinstated their relationship status as BFFs. Katy was not the only star Rihanna reunited with at last night's afterparty since her collaborator and one-time rumored flame, Drake, who also took the stage to perform for this year's VMAs, was spotted leaving the Dream Hotel. Even Taylor Swift had her own potentially awkward run in — she posed for a photo inside with Harry Styles. Jennifer Hudson and One Direction's Niall Horan were also on hand to celebrate after the show.
Not only did Rihanna have her BFF and ex-love interest alongside her after the award show, but Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles as well as the night's MVP, Justin Timberlake, and his wife, Jessica Biel, made appearances at the same star-studded afterparty as well.
