She's known for shocking wherever she goes with her raunchy antics and racy performances.
But Rihanna proved she can just as easily do delicate and demure as she took to the stage at The X Factor final on Sunday night.
Performing a stripped back version of her latest track, Stay, the 24-year-old singer proved that she certainly has the X Factor with a flawless rendition.
The star made sure to show off her fashion credentials in a chic Alexander Wang ensemble, consisting off a white cutout detail halterneck top and matching high-waisted skirt.
A far cry from her usual eye-popping numbers, Rihanna teamed her outfit with white T-bar sandals and a somewhat bizarre strap around her calves.
The Bajan beauty had ditched the flowing locks she has been sporting of late, reverting her chic and stylish cropped 'do.
Striking bronze make-up, dazzling diamond earrings and dramatic silver jewellery completed the singer's X Factor look.
Although the audience initially seemed a little perplexed by Rihanna's toned-down, stripped-back performance, it wasn't long until she got the crowd pumping with her up-tempo chart-topper, We Found Love.
Jumping around the stage as she exerted all her energy into her performance, the star was surrounded by explosions of fire and a thumping beat as she got the crowd going.
Twitter was soon awash with compliments for the stunning star, with the likes of Cheryl Cole and Little Mix praising the singer.
Cheryl wrote: 'And the winner of the X factor is @rihanna!!!!!'
Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: 'Rihanna went and done it again! Ahhh she's so amazing! X Leigh x'
The night also featured a performance from former X Factor stars One Direction, who finished third on the show back in 2010.
