PARDON ME but have you seen the splendor that is Rihanna at Crop Over Festival? The electric turquoise wig that she wears with such casual ease! The confidence she radiates in her teeny bedazzled ensemble! And the ability to somehow make me go “Hmm, do I need to buy a pair of nude rhinestone-festooned fishnet tights?” That’s the Rihanna effect.
The literal baddest gal around stopped by the Crop Over Festival, formerly known as Carnival, in her native Barbados on August 7 looking like a snack and redefined the meaning of slayyyyyyyy.
these pictures of rihanna cleared my skin and unsubscribed me from every PR list i was ever put on without permission

EYE celebrate Rihanna in all of her Caribbean-ness because I didn’t see Caribbean women represented while growing up. She is us.

Today, as always, I feel extremely grateful that I happen to be alive at the same time as Rihanna is alive.

It’s, of course, not the first time she came to Crop Over to destroy. Let’s take a freakin’ moment to admire our queen’s Crop Over lewks over the years:
