These Were Rihanna's Hottest Instagram Selfies Of 2017

If there’s one celebrity who is having the best life ever, it’s Rihanna. And as far as good years go, this one was pretty killer for RiRi, as well.

The pop star, beauty icon, and entrepreneur launched her to-die-for Fenty Beauty by Rihanna cosmetics line in 2017, watched as several products were immediately sold out at Sephora, and was celebrated by TIME as one of its top 25 innovators of the year. She had a street named after her in her home country of Barbados, was one of the most streamed artists of the year (along with fellow celebs Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez), and graced countless magazine covers like Vogue Paris, Elle, Dazed — we can go on.

Along the way, Rihanna did Instagram better than any other celeb — posting some of the hottest selfies we’ve seen this year. Here are 6 of RiRi’s finest selfie moments.

1. Rihanna In A Bodega Posing For Paper Magazine

While on a photo shoot for Paper magazine, Rihanna slinked her way around a bodega wearing the sexiest, fiercest clothing and punk-inspired hair styles imaginable. No one can be sure of why she’s holding a lighter or menacingly firing it up inches away from the camera, but our guess is that someone stepped out of line and deserves her wrath.

2. Natural Light And Red Lips

Was Rihanna giving us a taste of things to come when she posted this gorgeous kissy photo in natural sunlight, showing bare skin and eyes and the most stunning red lips? Just a few months later she would go on to debut her Stunna Lip Paint red lipstick shade, hailed as one the most perfect universal reds on the market.

3. Major Bling Selfie

Everything about this major bling accessories selfie is hot — from the metallic rhinestone boots and bag that became a national obsession this year to the attention-grabbing diamond tennis bracelets, rings as big as planets, and — of course — that gorgeous shade of deep green-black nail lacquer pulling it all together.

4. Posing For Her Rihanna Chopard Collection

With a hashtag like #RihannalovesChopard, the world has no trouble knowing which jeweler has captured the icon’s heart and creative inspiration. Here she is showing off one stunning piece from her collaboration with Chopard and proving she can effortlessly transition from punk diva to elegant queen like it’s no big thing.

5. Rihanna At Barbardos’ Carnival Festival

Don’t even think of booking Rihanna or taking up her time in early August, because that’s when the star plans her annual pilgrimage to Barbados’ Carnival Festival, where she never fails to come through with the most incredible, awe-inspiring costumes. RiRi’s 2017 turquoise wig, feathers, and major jewel action did not disappoint.

6. Having Fun With Snapchat Filters

Rihanna has always come across as a celeb who works and plays hard. Her work ethic is serious, but she isn’t afraid of cracking a joke at her own expense or jumping on Shapchat and playing around with fun filters. When she posted this adorable pic, all decked out in cat whiskers and ears, it became pretty clear that the most independent, badass animal in the kingdom is her soul animal.
