Rihanna was the belle of the ball last night in Las Vegas as she partied up a storm for the Fourth of July weekend.
The Umbrella singer looked stunning as she hosted the after party for her concert which she had performed at earlier in the night.
Rihanna's bright red tresses stood out in the crowd as she mingled with revellers at Club Nikki inside the Tropicana Hotel.
Red hot: Rihanna partied into the earlier hours of this morning at Club Nikki in Las Vegas to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend
She arrived around 2.30am wearing a gorgeous green dress and her signature hair.
The singer was clearly not ready to hit her California King Bed and hung out with Travis Barker and boxer Dominic Cruz.
Rihanna had dazzled her fans earlier in the night with a show-stopping performance of her greatest hits at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Party buddies: Rihanna partied with rocker Travis Barker and boxer Dominic Cruz
Wearing her brightly coloured two piece with matching fluorescent boots, the Barbadian songstress danced and gyrated through her set.
The Only Girl In The World hit-maker later admitted to a Twitter follower that she was 'walkin in a strip club!!!' for the reason she was still up, obviously intent on making the most of her tour stop in Sin City.
Another celebrity who came out to see Ri-Ri perform was Nicole Richie.

The reality star took time out from looking after her two children Harlow and Sparrow to party with girlfriends.
She was very dressed down in black jeans and a matching jacket but jazzed up her ensemble with a green silk head scarf and white bag.
There have been reports that Rihanna and RnB singer Drake have been dating but pictures posted on TMZ show that the pair may really be more than just friends.

The photograph taken a few weeks ago in a nightclub in Canada show the pair snuggled up at a private booth.
The two singers were at Buonatte Supperclub in Montreal on June 12 around midnight.
A source told the site that the pair were 'all over each other' the whole night and were seen making out.
Publicity: Rihanna is the new face of Vita Coco coconut water
Rihanna has denied that she is in a relationship with the Canadian singer.
Meanwhile, Rihanna is all smiles in new adverts for soft drink Vita Coco.
She poses on the beach in the advertisements for the coconut drink which reads: 'Hydrate naturally, from a tree not a lab.'
Vita Coco hired Rihanna as the brand's face in May 2011. The campaign was shot in Jamaica this spring, in a break from the filming of her video, Man Down.
