The Umbrella hitmaker, expecting her second kid, wore a huge outfit covering her entire body. The upper body of the outfit was floral, and it hid her baby belly. Rihanna later removed the floral part of the dress, revealing a white silk dress with a flared base.

Riri accessorised the look with cat eye sunglasses, gloves and red lipstick for a pop of colour.
