It appears that Rihanna may have been out-Rihanna'd — and before anyone gets mad, Rihanna said so, not us.

California teenager Shania Ruedas Bernal dressed up as RiRi for her high school's "celebrity day," channeling a photo from Rihanna's Anti release event at a Los Angeles art gallery.

She killed it, from the hairstyle and the draped sleeve, to the dark lipstick and the red balloon. She even added a crown emoji for good measure.

Bernal got dozens of compliments on the photo from her Twitter followers. Before long, Rihanna fan Instagram account @247papstv reposted a side-by-side pic of Bernal and RiRi.

Then, it happened.

Alarms sounded. Doves were released. The celebratory "Pon de Replay" began to play. Why? Because Rihanna had commented. She loved Bernal's costume, thus making it the best costume imaginable.

And Bernal, who was in class when she saw the comment, was thrilled. "I wanted to walk out of the classroom and scream," she told BuzzFeed. "It was honestly the greatest feeling in the world to be complimented by Rihanna herself.”

May Bernal wear this costume every Halloween and most weekends for the rest of her life.
