Today Rihanna was honoured in her native Barbados. Rain almost ruined the beautiful ceremony but as Bajans say – “no rain can’t stop this jam”. Not only does Rihanna hold the title of Cultural Ambassador for Barbados but the street she grew up on now bears her name. Westbury New Road in St. Michael, Barbados is now Rihanna Drive. This decision was made because of Rihanna’s stellar achievements and contributions to Barbados and also because her childhome home now serves as a destination for curious tourists.
The golden dress is from Hellessy‘s Spring/Summer 2018 collection [Look 14]. The Hutton shirt dress, which retails for $920, features a v neckline, a wrap waist and elongated sleeves. Her python mules are custom Manolo Blahnik.
That tiny handbag is Jacquemus‘ Le Sac Chiquito in yellow. It’s from the designer’s Spring 2018 collection and boasts his name on the front in gold. Made of suede, it also has a top handle and flap closure. Get it this coming spring for $550.
We all know how much the megastar loves her jewels. Thanks to her style team I’ve got a lot of that info to share with you starting with these hoops. Rih rocked Jennifer Fisher‘s 3 inch Samira hoop earrings in gold ($650).
The second diamond necklace is from Oscar Heyman as well as a ring on her right hand. The ring boasts 44 round diamonds, 73 fancy colour round diamonds and an oval garnet.
The final necklace is Turner & Tatler‘s gold, pearl and diamond starburst necklace ($685). The necklace features white pearls spread over ten points with a diamond at the centre. She also wore one of their oval citrine and rose cut diamond bangles on her left hand.

Finally, here’s a look at the main sign marking Rihanna Drive. It bears a stunning photo of the star and a personal message from her. There are two other signs to direct you to Rihanna Drive and there’s also a sign bearing her name and a sun symbol just outside her childhood home. Click here to check that out.
