Rihanna went back to her homeland, Barbados, yesterday (July 10) to say her final goodbyes to her beloved grandmother, whom she endearingly called Gran Gran Dolly. Her grandmother was laid to rest after losing her battle with cancer.
The sorrowful star looked sophisticated and classic with an upswept beehive hairdo, dark purple lipstick, and a demur little black dress. The trend-setting icon added her own spice to the classical look with a pair of heel-less strappy shoes. Rihanna's devastation was clear to see on her face.
