Rihanna had a sunny weekend, at least by the looks of the photos that have surfaced of the “We Found Love” songstress in Hawaii. Perhaps she needed a mini vacation from all that Twitter love triangle drama (which still seems to be going on!) between her, ex Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran. RiRi definitely made a splash at the beach in a fringe-tastic bikini, but was she still dressing to make an impression on Brown or was she just channeling her inner cowgirl diva and having some fun?
Decked out in a black two-piece, complete with a fringed bandeau top and barely there bottoms, RiRi showed off her curves as she hit the shore and took to paddling around on a surf board in the Pacific Ocean. However, unlike some of her super-provocative and revealing looks, this one was a bit more appropriate in that she was at the beach and the swimsuit at least covered her assets. The best part of the ensemble had to be her cowboy hat. Talk about wet and wildÂ—make that wild, wild west! Yee-haw! TMZ has a few snaps of her “cowgirl” look.
Rihanna definitely seemed to put any Chris Brown drama behind her, as she was frequently photographed beaming with friends per the pics posted at Daily Mail. She was also caught drinking while wading around on the surf board, as the equipment proved a perfect place to hold several cups of what looked like beer.
The fun (and the fringe!) didn’t stop with Ri Ri’s bikini, though. She later put on a pair of denim hot pants that had long pieces of fringe hanging from them. Those shorts might have been a fashion miss, but they did play into the overall wild cowgirl theme.
The singer-actress wasn’t just in the Aloha State to show some western flair. She was also promoting her new film, Battleship, with a Saturday photo call at Pearl Harbor with co-stars Alexander Skarsgard, Taylor Kitsch and Brooklyn Decker, as Daily Mail reports. So, it wasn’t all play and no work! Still, Rihanna seemed to be soaking up plenty of good times.
