Rihanna is at home in Barbados, celebrating Crop Over Festival with her family. And what does one wear to a family 'do? If the answer isn't pink feathers, then perhaps you need to be more RiRi. For arriving at the festival, the singer was resplendent in a pink mini dress adorned with huge feathers, glitter-encrusted heels from Midnight 00 and emerald green eyeshadow. Just pure joy.

The dress is a custom-made creation from Amsterdam-based designer David Laport, who is known for his light, frothy designs that included pleated tulle co-ords, sequin turtlenecks and, of course, a whole lot of colourful feathers. He won the International Woolmark Prize for 2017/2018 and describes his style as 'light, feminine, classic but always with an edge'. He's also the latest in a long line of young designers championed by Rihanna, who often supports emerging talent, despite now having her own clothing line, Fenty.

The pink feathers come in a week where Rihanna spectacularly chastised Trump's response to yet another deadly shooting in the US. Writing on Instagram, she said: 'Um... Donald, you spelt “terrorism” wrong! Your country had 2 terrorist attacks back to back, hours apart leaving almost 30 innocent people dead. This, just days after yet another terrorist attack in California, where a terrorist was able to LEGALLY purchase an assault rifle (AK-47) in Vegas, then drive hours to a food festival in Cali leaving 6 more people dead including a young infant baby boy!'

In the grand scheme of things, Rihanna wearing a concoction of pink feathers to attend a festival is not breaking news. But in reality, she's a shot of pure, unadulterated joy to behold. And that's a very welcome thing indeed right now.
