The star returned to Barbados, her native country to celebrate the annual Crop Over Festival
When Rihanna walks in, the whole world stops and stares. But when she walks in a skimpy, rhinestone bejewelled bikini with blue hair, you just stop breathing.
Proud of her Barbados heritage, the 29-year-old singer returns every year to celebrate the annual Crop Over Festival with as much vigour as other participants. This time around, Rihanna dyed her hair a striking teal and wore a shiny bikini with matching garters and outrageous plumed wings. She completed the look with glittering fishnet tights, dramatic makeup and that confidence!
Watch her enjoying her time at the dance parade:
She made an appearance at the Kadooment Day parade, the climax of Barbados' Crop Over festival, a West Indian celebration marking the end of the sugarcane harvest which dates back at least to the colonial period.
At the end of the harvest season, enthusiastic dancers come out dressed in their most colourful outfits to mark the successful completion of the harvest. Thus the name, Crop Over celebration.
The festival, however, took a backseat when the sugar industry in Barbados suffered and started declining. In fact, the festival was stopped in the 1940s. It was revived in 1974 and the festival came back with a stronger influence combining elements from the Barbadian culture. The festival today attracts thousands from all around the world.
This wasn't a first for Rihanna as she has come out all in support of the festival previously, too. In 2015, Rihanna was seen sporting a blue dye of a much darker shade.
Some of her looks from the previous years:
We love you, Rihanna!
