Every other year since 2011, Rihanna has been gracing us with iconic and over-the-top Carnival festival looks in her hometown of Barbados. 

The Fenty Beauty founder sneakily wore then-unreleased products with her look from 2017, and some are speculating that she is doing the same this year. Priscilla Ono, Fenty Beauty global makeup artist, attended the fest with the musician and showed off the lime-green eye makeup look she crafted for her boss on Instagram. Perhaps that's a sign that more new products are on the way.

The 31-year-old musician debuted a different look from the bustier tops and bejeweled underwear that she's sported in the past. This year she wore a bright pink minidress adorned with so many feathers that sprouted out all around her — reminiscent of her 2015 Grammy Awards dress

The musician stepped out in a David Laport dress with the biggest smile on her face. 

The Amsterdam-based designer shared an image of the celebrity in a dress from his collection. The bright pink colors and extravagant feathers fit the vibe for the Crop Over Festival in Barbados, commonly referred to as Carnival. Laport captioned his post, "SHINE BRIGHT IN PINK... @badgalriri in Barbados wearing #madetomeasure #davidlaport #pink #feathers #dress #rihanna #fan #amazing #barbados #carnaval #badgirlriri." 

Even the prime minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, had to snap a pic with Queen Rih. 

Rihanna is an icon of the festival on her home island that she attends every other year. The Barbados Prime Minister stopped her in the parade to take a quick pic and the two looked adorable in their festival attire. 

Mottley wrote, "Earlier today, Her Excellency Robyn Rihanna Fenty stopped by to say hello while I was enjoying seeing the parades pass by in Black Rock. Also in the photograph was Chakabars Clarke, recipient of the Global Good Award at the 2019 BET Awards."

Rihanna was clearly so happy to be back home celebrating with her people. 

A fan account shared a video of the artist dancing on a float driving through the parade. The feathers bounced playfully and she looked absolutely thrilled. Normally Rihanna wears skimpier outfits to Carnival and many were surprised to see her so covered up, but the look still fits in perfectly with the jovial spirit of the fest. 

The entrepreneur's previous outfits have all been jaw-dropping. 

Members of Rihanna's Navy keep their eyes peeled every other year, waiting to spot the star's iconic Carnival outfits, and this year's was so different. In the past she's worn sexy bras and bedazzled underwear with fishnet tights, accessorizing with headdresses and feathers. This year was not in the least bit toned down, but slightly more covered up. 

The wealthiest woman in music let loose atop a float during The Grand Kadooment, or the ending of the crop season. 

Rihanna was decked out in diamond bracelets, earrings, and a pendant in the center of her dress. Plus, her eye makeup look and nails were neon green with embellishments. The Barbados native fully embraced the tradition of the celebration. 

The entire look, from her bantu knots to her slinky pink shoes, was on point. 

Rihanna was styled impeccably for the event, with clear, embellished shades that showcased her eye shadow. Instead of her usual feathery headdress, the artist opted for traditional bantu knots that let the dress shine. She kept her shoes simple and on brand, in bubblegum pink hues with ties around the ankles and diamond embellishments on the toes. 

Ono joined the musician at the festival, so now many are speculating about potential new makeup products. 

"I wonder how many new products are on her face!? (my wallet is NOT ready)," one fan commented on Ono's post. 

The makeup artist shared her boss feeling her look and dancing on the float. The commenter isn't alone in these speculations, as it's commonplace for Rihanna to test out her products before they drop. 

"Trying to look deep into this video to see what fenty has in store for us," another person wrote. Keep searching Rihanna fans, and maybe we'll get information on more products soon!
