Rihanna Looked Naked, Sparkly And Spectacular At Barbados Festival (NSFW)

Rihanna Instagram Crop Over Outfit

For the annual Crop Over harvest festival of Kadooment Day in Barbados, Rihanna dressed up in a next-to-naked, blinged out get-up complete with feathers, gems and a rather incredible amount of luck. Seriously, I have zero idea how she managed to keep it all in there.

As per usual, she looked absolutely stunning. Also as per usual, she Instagrammed over a dozen photos of her day, most of which are fairly NSFW. Of course, sites like Fishwrapper had something slut shame-y to say about her outfit:

If you’re Rihanna… it is a big deal, because this is a way of validating herself. She needs for this to be a big deal to you, OK? So do a girl a solid and just … agree. Things will go that much smoothly if you just nod and smile whenever you see Rihanna essentially showing you her reproductive organs, alright?

Now, I personally think she looks incredible and I don’t give a shit what she’s showing. And Crop Over is about much, much more than elaborate, heavily-accessorized bikinis, of course; it’s a traditional festival that began in the mid-1600s and features singing, dancing, eating, drinking and a whole lot of celebrating. Obviously, it’s more than those, too, but I am admittedly not an expert and would hate to appear as though I find myself capable of summarizing the entire festival in a sentence or two.

That said, I am an expert on posting celebrities’ crazy photos in galleries for you to gawk at, so here are some of Rihanna’s from yesterday plus the captions she added to them. I found it kind of amusing that she included hashtags, which are often used to get more people to see your photos; with her 9 million+ followers, it’s funny to imagine Rihanna determining the appeal of some #PARTYTAGZ over others. Celebrities: They’re just like us, only with liquid gold flowing through their diamond-encrusted circulatory systems.

    let’s take this in context: she’s at Carnival! everyone dresses in next-to-nothing at Carnival. it’s the culture. would you tell a Brazilian at Brazilian Carnival to cover up? No. and I’m tired of these sites shaming women because they don’t fit what convention defines a “decent woman”. they are just as bad as the so-called exploiters of women. there is a definite tyranny of women-shaming.

    As to how it stays on properly, in Brazilian Carnival costumes is all glued in, maybe that’s it. Hairspray on the skin is a well known trick as well.

    Ah! Beautiful face! I will momentarily ignore how annoying she usually is.

    wow, she looks gorgeous. i remember when they were trying to play her off as a breezy peasant topped beach girl. i thought she wasn’t much to look at.
    she looks like an alien with the short hair. so glad she has her own style, more than you can say than most
