She’s had the ultimate honour bestowed upon her by having the street she grew up on as a child renamed after her.
And Rihanna certainly ensured all eyes were on her as she attended the official ceremony to unveil the newly-named Rihanna Drive in Bridgetown, Barbados, on Wednesday, marking the Caribbean island’s Independence Day.
The Grammy-winning singer, 29, looked incredible as she turned heads in a bold canary yellow shirt-style mini-dress from Hellessy, which hung off her shoulders to showcase her decolletage.
The Shut Up And Drive hitmaker complemented her thigh-skimming number with matching stiletto heels and a tiny purse.
Huge gold hoops, several necklaces and spangly bracelets added a bling factor to Rihanna’s look as she joined Prime Minister Freundel Stuart at the two-hour ceremony.
In spite of the rain, Rihanna seemed in high spirits as she attended the ceremony, smiling and waving to fans as she strolled through the streets of her hometown.
The Work hitmaker grew up on Westbury New Road in the Caribbean island’s capital Bridgetown, and last month officials decided to change the name of the avenue to honor the local ‘superstar’.
The statement read:
‘The Government of Barbados will on Independence Day, Thursday 30th November, 2017 officially change the name of Westbury New Road located in St. Michael to Rihanna Drive in honor of Barbadian superstar Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty who grew up in Westbury New Road.’
