This year, Rihanna made it look effortless to juggle Hollywood performances and pregnancy. After dazzling the masses at Super Bowl LVII with her electrifying halftime show prowess, she hit another high note with a stunning vocal performance during this month’s Oscars ceremony. A nod of applause for this mom-to-be!

After a six-year silence, Rihanna’s return to public performances is bringing joy and relief to her fans – a lyric to the power of her iconic sound. Her much-anticipated comeback has been cause for revelry in her legions of fans who can now bask in the sounds they once thought lost forever.

Y’all have seen the TikToks of admirers remaking their own version of her now legendary Super Bowl halftime performance.

In classic Rihanna fashion, the iconic singer arrived at her recent 95th Academy Awards in an eye-catching Alaïa Bandeau gown that showcased both a sheer daring element and luxe leather. As punctual as ever, she dazzled upon entering the red carpet as only a true fashion maven could.

On Sunday night, she brought the house down at this year’s Oscars with her performance of “Lift Me Up,” nominated for Best Song from Marvel film Wakanda Forever. It was truly an Oscar-worthy showing – and in more ways than one, oozing glamour and grace, she stepped onstage donning an exquisite diamond-encrusted Maison Margiela dress. Performing her heartfelt tribute to Chadwick Boseman through her stunning violin rendition, it was truly a memorable moment for all who attended and watched.

Looking every inch a fashion icon, the talented singer was spotted backstage with A$AP Rocky in an eye-catching outfit that could easily have graced the Paris runways. She dazzled onlookers wearing a minty Bottega Veneta skirt and cropped blouse combo paired with some stylish Sergio Rossi x Area sandals – all topped off by chic cape gloves for extra glamour!
