The 28-year-old mixed high fashion with casual day wear in a slouchy plaid shirt, white shorts, and a long, elaborate fur coat, while her jet black hair was slicked and pinned back with the help of gold floral barrettes.
Superstar singer appears glamorous at Black Girls Rock!
Rihanna, who always slays on the red carpet, took her game higher as she appeared on Friday at the event in New York City, pairing white shorts with a fur coat.
She also wore a glittering cross necklace, a gold choker, and a pair of stiletto heels with a pearl design at the toe.
Rihanna looked amazing as always for the star-studded night that saw the likes black female stars Tatyana Ali, Kelly Rowland and Andra Day in attendance.
The event, hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross, 43, was a partnership between BET and the non-profit Black Girls Rock!, which honoured the amazing feats achieved of extraordinary women of colour.
The 'Diamonds' singer wasn't just going as a guest either - in fact, Rihanna would be recognised with the Rock Star Award.
Rihanna has been living the life of a true rock star as of late, as the songbird has been busy travelling through the US for her "ANTI" tour.
The Barbadian beauty will continue the tour through the US and Canada before the European leg begins in the Netherlands on June 17.
