The 29-year-old shut down the Internet with her traditional Bajan costume.
Rihanna knows how to grab attention, and she did on Monday from her insanely sexy Crop Over 2017 photos. The Bajan headed home for the festivities, which include street parades, club parties, Calypso music and Bridgetown Market food. The traditional celebration of the completion of sugar cane harvest —revived in the 1970s— brings out the most vibrant and body-positive costumes everyone loves.
The annual event is something Rihanna rarely misses, but this year she shut down the Internet with her bejeweled hand-made costume. As reported by Nation News, the 29-year old attended Grand Kadooment, jumping with the Aura Experience group.
But back to this outfit.
Longtime friend, Pharrell Williams commented on the feathered two-piece look by saying “Damn” multiple times on video— our sentiments as well.
And her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown dropped into her comments to leave looking eyes on a photo posted to Rihanna’s Instagram page.
Director, Ava DuVernay even had something to say about RiRi. “I don’t think ‘slay’ is appropriate,” she tweeted. “It ain’t enough. Need a new word for this all-out forest fire of heat and flames.”
All the reactions were totally unexpected but definitely warranted considering how beautiful RiRi looked. Keep slaying, Rihanna.
