She's known for her funky, ever-changing style and eccentric looks.
But Rihanna cut a far more sophisticated figure today as she attended the funeral of late Barbados Prime Minister David Thompson.
The 22-year-old wore a Jackie O-esque black hat and sunglasses, with a cream top and long black trousers.

And she kept her vivid red hair tucked away in a chic updo under the hat.
The Umbrella star looked sad and serious as she sat in the audience at the Kensington Oval, occasionally dabbing at her eyes with a hankie.

Sad: Rihanna says she will never forgive herself for missing best friend Katy Perry's wedding

The singer recently spoke out about her best friend Katy Perry's wedding, which she missed due to work commitments.
And she claims to be overcome with guilt at not being able to attend the ceremony.
'I will never ever forgive myself for that, it was a crazy time, it was a crazy week, I'm switching management,' she told Ryan Seacrest.

'There was no phone service in India and very little-to-no internet service, so it would have been a little irresponsible of me. I'm sad that I missed it.'
The Umbrella star made sure to give newlyweds Katy and Russell Brand a fantastic gift - but she won't divulge details.
She says: 'I got her a really, really cool gift. But I'll let her tell you about that!'
According to sources, Katy and Russell had reserved Rihanna a room at the Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India, just in case she made it.
One said, 'It was always sort of up in the air that she would go anyway, and Katy knew that.

'They saved her a room just in case, but they always knew it would be nearly impossible for her to make it as she's still finishing the album and it's out in a few weeks. Rih was in the studio all weekend.'
