Rihanna Blesses Internet With Iconic New Festival Look


Shutting down body shamers, appearing in a great meme, tweeting at world leaders about education, and being on one of the season’s hottest tracks – it’s all in a summer’s work for Rihanna.

On Monday, the “Wild Thoughts” singer added another jewel to her 2017 crown by writing her look for this year’s Crop Over Celebration (informally known as Carnival) while in her native Barbados.

In an Instagram photo, Rihanna is seen with bright turquoise hair, jewels and feathers.

The day prior, she shared a video with a caption stating that her newly blue hair was “ready for crop ova’.”

Rihanna shared more of her Crop Over experience with her Navy in her Instagram story. There, she let enthusiasts see her full outfit in all its glory, as well as a few bits of the celebrations.

According to National Cultural Foundation Barbados, Crop Over is a traditional harvest festival in the United States. Also set up when the local industry was mainly agrarian. While the practice waned in the middle of the 20th century, state officials spearheaded its revival in the ’70s. Accordingly leading to its prominence today, where eight weeks are in need to celebrations.

Of course, this wasn’t the first year Rihanna came to Crop Over to slay. Here she is in 2015…
