News Americas, BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Mon. Aug. 3, 2015: Barbados-born star Rihanna proved she is Bajan to the bone Monday as for another year she refused to miss out on the annual carnival celebrations of her homeland.
The ‘Good Girl Gone Bad,’ singer flaunted it all on Monday at the annual Kadooment Day parade even as British Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton who has been rumored to be dating RiRi was spotted near by.
For this year’s carnival, Rihanna wore a barely-there Zula costume with a barely there diamond sparkly bra, matching underwear and a huge feathered green and black head-dress and wings.
Her hair was styled in light brown curls that fell down under her head-dress, and she accentuated it all with dramatic gold cuffs on her wrists, a pop of bright pink lipstick and light green manicure.
The Umbrella singer again shows she knows how to party as she sipped an orange mystery liquid from a gem-encrusted water bottle then swapped out her tumbler for a sparkly cup before holding up an empty bottle of alcohol as she leaned against the VIP balcony and danced to the music.
Hamilton was spotted hanging out near Rihanna wearing a silver woven tank top and matching shorts along with a baseball cap on backwards, round sunglasses and colorful pixel print sneakers.
On Sunday night, Rihanna made a surprise appearance at the ‘1 Love Concert’ to perform “Bitch Better Have My Money” with soca king Machel Montano.
“Kadooment Day” in Barbados is the culmination of the Crop Over Festival Season. The “Grand Kadooment is the official finale celebration of the season and held on the first Monday of August. This parade of Masquerade Bands prances through the streets before judges in a Carnival-like fashion to be judged at strategic points. Spectators and revelers of Grand Kadooment in Barbados, who are not registered with a Carnival Band, can view the beautifully costumed Masqueraders from along the Route. Food and drinks are sold roadside, so fans can enjoy the spectacle as they pass by with their massive music trucks, usually with Deejays and Live Bands to entertain the huge crowds.
The street party ends at the beach-front Spring Garden Highway, where they await the results of the day in merriment in the presents of a beautiful fireworks display.
