Don’t we all wish we could be a little bit more like Rihanna? She’s fearless, unapologetic and doesn’t really care what anyone thinks.

Case in point: last night, Rih shared some photos of herself in her summer element and they were perfection in every way, with not a filter in sight.

In the series of photos, Rihanna embraces the sun, captioning them: “when u can’t wait for summer”.

Between the natural wavy hair, makeup-free face and blue skies, fans also noticed that Rihanna was rocking a bit of stubble on her legs, while in the third photo, fans thought they spotted stretch marks.

Fans were quick to applaud Rihanna for her totally carefree approach to showing off her body hair and “imperfections”.

The comment sections were filled with love-heart emojis, naturally.

One user applauded Rihanna for showing off her “tiger stripes” (stretch marks), but RiRi clarified, writing, “I got stretch marks but that’s just the sun,” with a laughing emoji

Rihanna has never been one to cater to trolls. Just last year, she was attacked by some commenting on her weight.

In true Rihanna style, she clapped back, “Somebody called me too fat?”


Rihanna’s body positive Instagram post came just before she revealed her Vogue US cover for which she stars on the June issue.

The images – which looks very much inspired by her summer mood photos, we might add – were shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
