After reveling until the early hours of the morning at the Crop Over Festival Foreday Morning Jam in Barbados on Saturday, Rihanna was right back at it again on Monday.
This time, Rihanna, 25, was seen sipping out of a hip flask as she danced on a float during the Kadooment carnival, part of the eight day festival.
This time, Rihanna showed off her bikini body in a traditional carnival-style bejewelled two-piece, featuring a low-cut top and a high-cut bottom.
The singer paired the ensemble with a matching necklace, feathered shin guards and headpiece, as well as two cuffs around her wrists and a smattering of diamantes applied to the side of her face.
Rihanna’s look was completed by a pair of fishnet tights and a pair of Adidas trainers on her feet.

She wore shimmering silver hues for make-up and shielded her eyes with a pair blue-tinted sunglasses.
Rihanna was joined by several other similarly scantily-clad women, including her best pal Melissa Forde, on the float as she reveled in the sunshine.
And she was once again accompanied by her dutiful bodyguard who was also forced to babysit her from midnight till 6AM as she “dutty wined” at the festival on Saturday.
While she is in her hometown, Rihanna was taking no chances when she was joined by two of her bodyguards on Saturday morning as she partied it up in the island’s capital Bridgetown.
Much like on Monday, Rihanna’s bodyguard had the arduous task of watching her party all night – drink in hand – rather raucously.
