Rihanna gives a hair-raising performance in billowy ensemble that wows crowd at Rock In Rio festival

She has logged countless performances beneath her belt, and Rihanna was back packing another punch when she took to the stage at Rock In Rio music festival on Saturday night.

\n

The 27-year-old rocked the atmosphere in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil in a baggy trousers and a matching jacket as she commanded the crowd for the event’s sixth night.

\n

Rihanna played with her wavy strands as she sauntered on stage, sporting a pair of large sunglasses and a tight black tank top.

The hit-maker exhibited her styling prowess when she took the stage, her neck dripping with long and sparkling necklaces that fell past her cleavage.

\n

Complimenting her complexion was an application of winged eyeliner, and deep purple red lips to add to the sexy look.

\n

Rihanna teamed her flowing and eye-catching attire with a pair of sporty trainers, which no doubt served her well as she frolicked on stage.

Rihanna is one great sartorial role model in that she doesn’t follow rules, she makes them up as she goes along.

The R&B hitmaker channelled her inner 90s diva in a full oversized yellow outfit custom designed by wacky thread-maker Jeremy Scott, and it reminded us of something Aaliyah might have worn back in the day.

\n

Making the baggy look her own, the yellow parachute-style coordinates made for quite the impressive stage outfit, but we can take some inspiration from RiRi’s style for every day life.

\n

Wide leg pants have been quite the breakthrough trend this year, with designers including Chloe and Stella McCartney working them into their most recent catwalk offerings.

\n

So you won’t be falling short on the style front by emulating Rihanna’s vibe from the likes of The Row, Asos, 3.1 Phillip Lim and more in our edit below.

Style with a black bodysuit to draw attention to your waist, and you’re good to go.

The Diamonds hit-maker was no doubt loving the audience’s energy as she extended her microphone in the crowd’s direction, no doubt in an attempt to capture their singing.

Rihanna demonstrated her commitment to the performance as she closed her eyes, appearing totally lost in the moment as her bangs swept across her face.

\n

The singer was certainly not the only star in the arena, as Sam Smith and Cara Delevingne were also seen in the crowd.

Having recently unveiled a brand new pair of shoes for Puma, Rihanna’s professional life is clearly going from strength to strength.

\n

But it is her romance with Travis Scott that has also made headlines.

\n

The cool couple appeared to confirm that they’re more than friends when they put on a steamy display at a recent New York Fashion Week party.
