With her new curly short do, she looked great in the all-white Legend costume which was featured in the Play Mas spread in our Summer 2013 edition.

Rihanna's costume was one of the Zulu designs featured in the Summer 2013 edition of Islandista magazine.

Excitingly for the brand new band, she’s been posting tons of photos on Instagram from her jump with them and hailing them up on Twitter.

Zulu’s director and designer, the incredibly talented Lauren Austin definitely deserves this as the cap on an excellent Crop-Over season. Her designs definitely took mas in Bim to a higher level this year and Zulu’s organisation and vibes on the road today was fantastic. Lauren and her team definitely won Crop-Over 2013.
