So Rihanna had every reason to celebrate after last night's Brit Awards.
And she certainly did just that, slipping into a dazzling neon dress and sunglasses for a star-studded after party at Mahiki.
She completed her look with patent blue heel and opaque black ankle stockings;
The star had a red mark on her neck which looked rather like a love bite- but might equally have been a smudge of lipstick.
The Umbrella singer, who is on the tail end of a three-day party in London after celebrating her 24th birthday, showed off some serious skin as she posed for photographers on the red carpet.
Her gold dress had a halterneck-style which finished at her navel, and a thigh-high split showing off her enviable legs.
She paired it with brown leather gloves and strappy gold heels.
Rihanna's blonde weave was twisted up onto her head.
Later in the evening, she donned a curly wig to give an energetic performance of We Found Love after winning International Female Solo Artist, wearing just a long-sleeved top, exposing her pants underneath;
It's the second year in a row the Barbadian beauty has won the award, and she was clearly ecstatic as it was presented to her by Jenson Button.
She thanked her record label as well as her fans in her brief acceptance speech, saying: 'Thanks to all my fans who continue to support me no matter what - I love you, this is for you.'
Flashing their pins: Pixie Lott and Abbey Crouch both showcased their long legs in short dresses;
Her day certainly ended rather more glamorously than it began.
