Rihanna seems to have taken a little break from posting body-baring photos on her own Instagram account recently, but her best friend and photographer, Melissa Forde, hasn't. On Friday, Forde posted a steamy photo of "badgalriri" to her own account. In the pic, Rihanna stands sideways dressed in a backless one-piece with both sheer and glittering panels. On her feet, she rocks a pair of black Converse sneakers. The superstar singer gives a seductive over-the-shoulder glance at the camera and has her hair in a short, curly new 'do. The 25-year-old was decked out in the sparkly get-up because she was celebrating Barbados' Crop Over festival.
