She has spent most of the year performing in around the world as she continues to dominate the music charts.
Finally taking a break from her hectic schedule, Rihanna continued her partying ways as she enjoyed a night out on the town in Hollywood at Las Palmas.
The 24-year-old came across all coy as kept her head down while journeying inside the nightclub.
Joined by her bestfriend Melissa Forde, Rihanna failed to raise a smile as she teetered along.
However the Unapologetic star made sure to show off her slender frame in a chic ensemble.
Wearing a loosely fitted cropped knitted V-neck jumper with a black pencil skirt Rihanna looked ready to party as she held her quilted leather hand bag in one hand.

Eggplant lipstick, several rings and a pair of hooped earring helped Rihanna stand out from the crowd as she strutted her stuff in black open toe heeled sandals.

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons also joins Rihanna in the family film, and happy to be a part of the production, the singer tweeted about how much fan she had in the studio.
She wrote: ‘Had a blast today! So weird recording for animation, but I get to keep my accent! AND it’s PG, which mom should be happy about! Brrrap!!’
And following her recording session Rihanna kept a low profile during a shopping trip in Los Angeles.
The 24-year-old singer was seen checking out the Chanel make-up counter at Saks in Beverly Hills.
Rihanna was spotted wearing a grey printed jumper with a pair of black shorts.
Still rocking her black cropped hair, the Diamonds star opted to go for the au naturel look with a light application of make-up.
The heavily inked star completed her look with a pair of small sparkly earrings.
In good spirits: Rihanna was seen smiling as she got her Christmas shopping underway
Holding a glass of drink and a pair of sunglasses in one hand, Rihanna was seen inspecting various beauty products.
The Barbados-born beauty also greeted other shoppers at the store and was pictured handing out hugs.
Accompanied by a man, who appeared to be her bodyguard, Rihanna smiled as she loaded her shopping basket.
It was recently reported that Simon Cowell is planning on meeting Rihanna to beg her to become an X Factor judge.
Cowell believes the superstar has what it takes to ‘save’ the flagging shows and is prepared to offer her a job on either the UK or US version.
The music mogul even wants her rumoured boyfriend Chris Brown to take over from judge LA Reid on the US show, despite the singer’s bad boy reputation.
A source told The Sun: ‘Simon is a huge admirer of Rhianna and knows she’s star quality.
‘As well as her bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her standing in music, she is also feisty.’
Cowell has reportedly been deeply worried about the show and given that he spends Christmas in Barbados, where Rihanna will be over the festive period, he is said to be planning to approach her to get her on board.
