Rihanna has made Crop Over (also known as Carnival)—a festival that was already a major Caribbean event—into even more of an event for the people who do not attend and just want to look at pictures of Rihanna doing stuff while wearing something extravagant. This year, that something-extravagant is a bed of romantic pink feathers on a mini-dress.

The Mother of Dragging arrived on Sunday to attend Crop Over 2019 in her native Barbados. Unlike two years ago (she skipped the 2018 festival) and many other years, Rihanna’s boobs are this time notably tucked in, rather than out, and they’re surrounded by a wheel of pink wisps; her hair is styled in Bantu knots. She is joyous, be-feathered, carefree.

Pray tell, who is going to stop her, boo?

Take me to my leader:

My first impression of that costume is that it is very definitely designed to keep anybody from tiefing a wine or borrowing a wuk-up.

Also, as a proud Bajan, I will make more or less the same comment I make on every Rihanna Crop Over post here on Jezebel. Crop Over is not “also known as Carnival”, except by (mostly) non-Caribbean people who refuse to call the thing by its proper name. Plenty of other Caribbean countries call their celebrations Carnival, but in Barbados we have Crop Over.

(Strictly speaking, the event Rihanna is at is Kadooment, the climax of the months-long Crop Over festival, but that’s a distinction I don’t get too fussed over.)
