Rihanna’s fashion choices are always a surprise.
After touching down in her home country on Sunday wearing a glamorous, all-black outfit, the singer, 31, attended the Barbados Crop Over Festival wearing something totally unexpected.
Instead of the classic tiny bejeweled bra and thong with over-the-top feathered wings and hair pieces that Rihanna has worn in the past, Robyn Fenty went the opposite direction in a hot pink minidress that was completely covered in long, light pink ostrich feathers that stuck out in every direction.
To complete the look, she wore bejeweled pink lace-up pumps and rhinestone-covered circular sunglasses. She painted her entire eyelids with bright green eyeshadow and added stick-on jewels while she tied her hair up in bantu buns.
Rihanna attends the carnival every year, always stopping by for the culmination on Grand Kadooment Day on August 5th. The festival is Barbados’ most popular and colorful and can be traced back to the 1780’s when the country was the world’s largest producer of sugar. It celebrates the end of one sugar season and the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest.
Typically, she shows lots of skin and demonstrates her twerking and dutty wine dance skills on the parade route. In fact, in 2017, even ex-boyfriend Chris Brown couldn’t help but comment on her sexy Instagram photos, igniting ire from her fanbase.
Since then, the “Love on the Brain” singer has battled body-shamers and discussed her weight fluctuation publicly. Perhaps the new tactic is a diss for haters — or, more likely, Rihanna simply wanted to cover herself in feathers.
