Rihanna ensured her presence was felt on Monday evening as she let her hair down at the annual Crop Over Festival in her native Barbados.
The Bajan singer commanded attention in a feather embellished flamingo pink minidress as she made an appearance at the event’s Kadooment Day parade.
Glittering silver and pink heels completed the look, while garish green eye-shadow and red lipstick gave an already bold look an additional splash of colour.
Here she comes: Rihanna ensured her presence was felt on Monday evening as she let her hair down at the annual Crop Over Festival in her native Barbados
Crop Over is the highlight of Barbados’ summer, with the three month long extravaganza starting in May and culminating on Grand Kadooment Day on August 5th.
The festival celebrates the wrap up of sugar cane season; islanders embrace all that is Bajan, with dusk till dawn parties, heart pounding entertainment, arts and crafts markets and culture and heritage tours.
But despite its light-hearted nature, there were awkward scenes as Rihanna attempted to chaperone her elderly grandfather Bravo off their float as it made its way through St. Michael Parish.

Despite moving to America in 2005, Rihanna has been a regular presence at the event, with the singer rarely missing the annual celebration.
Rihanna signed with Def Jam Recordings after being discovered as a teenager, sparking a sensational music career that this year saw her named as the richest female musical artist.
The Diamonds singer’s $600 million net worth has eclipsed the fortunes earned by her peers Beyoncé, Madonna and Celine Dion, according to the publication.
In addition to her recent fashion ventures, Rihanna dipped into the world of cosmetics in 2017 with Fenty Beauty, a company which accrued nearly $570 million in revenue in 2018.

The singer recently shocked fans when it emerged that she had secretly been living in London for a year.
In May, she told The New York Times that she’s been ‘keeping a little incognito’ while staying in the capital and is enjoying the relative anonymity the city brings.
She said: ‘[I enjoy] walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito,’ adding that she finds Bank Holidays ‘insane’ [in a good way].’
