It was another day, another racy monokini for Rihanna.
The singer posted a picture of her in a daring cutaway swimsuit on her Instagram account on Saturday and it left little to the imagination.
The 24-year-old is currently in her native Barbados for Christmas and is taking advantage of the balmy climate to showcase an array of provocative swimwear.
In the Instagram snap the Umbrella singer nonchalantly reclines on a sofa in her island villa while seductively blowing smoke at the camera - and her derriere is plain for all to see.
Rihanna then took to her balcony for some full length posing.
With a smile on her face she paraded her curves in the skimpy grey and black number - tied in place with only narrow strings - before settling down for a little rest and to check her phone for messages.
Not long after, Rihanna left in a crisp white shirt dress with her cropped hair carefully groomed.
She was carrying a large denim-inspired Chanel tote and appeared to be engrossed once again with her mobile phone.
The Umbrella singer was initially rumoured to be spending the holiday with on-again, off-again boyfriend Chris Brown but instead chose to return with her best friend for her annual end of the year homecoming.
