Rihanna Puts Her Body On display In Barbados
Rihanna went back to her homeland of Barbados to celebrate the annual Crop Over Festival. Rihanna celebrates this event every year and documents the event for the world to see on Instagram. Her festival outfits are to die for, and this year she really killed it. Rihanna wore a turquoise wig with forehead facial jewelry, and a bejeweled bikini, which hugged her curves perfectly.
DBleudazzled designed part of Rihanna’s outfit and local designer Laura Austin put the rest of her outfit together. Austin spoke to Vogue about the Crop Over festival and working with Rihanna.
“I love how daring Rihanna is—her style is edgy and she isn’t afraid to wear whatever she wants when she wants.”
“When I first saw which look she chose, I thought wow, everyone will be shocked—the neon, the iridescent crystals, it’s totally different from what she’s done before, “Austin notes.
It took Austin and her team one day to make Rihanna's outfit. Crop Over used to be a simple event, but with fashion that all changed.
“Crop Over used to be celebrated with people wearing simple T-shirts,” Austin says. “Over the years however, designers started getting creative. Today it’s very important to dress up in full costume to really and truly feel the Crop Over vibe. It’s exhilarating, free, and radiant.”
Everyone was gagging at how good Rihanna's body looked, but not everyone at first had positive remarks on her new curves. A few months ago Rihanna made headlines when some photos were taken of her looking a bit more on the curvy side. There were even a few blogs that fat shammed the her, but all that didn't seem to faze the pop star as she showed off her curves at the Crop Over festival.
When many celebs would succumb to the criticism and fire back at the critics Rihanna is just living life, and by the looks of it, she is having a good time.
