Singer Rihanna has a sensational bikini body thanks to her recent weight loss. Rihanna is riding high amid the box-office success of her hit film Oceans 8 and her all-sizes lingerie line Savage x Fenty.

Rihanna, who gained some weight last year, has slimmed down a bit recently and looks fantastic. RiRi, whose real name is Robyn Fenty, was photographed this weekend leaving the Scotch of St. James nightclub in London, the Daily Mail reported.

Rihanna's sleeveless black dress spotlighted her recent weight loss (see below). RiRi has been celebrated for her sultry beauty and bombshell curves for years and exudes the unshakable self-confidence of a diva no matter what her size or weight.

The Grammy winner said she created Savage x Fenty for women, so they can feel good about themselves.

"Women should be wearing lingerie for their damn selves," Rihanna told Vogue. "I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light. I want women to own their beauty."

While some critics mocked her for "getting fat," most of her fans said there was just more of her to love.

"You have to just accept your body," Rihanna said. "You may not love it all the way, but you just have to be comfortable with it, comfortable with knowing that that's your body."

Listening to your own voice and marching to the beat of your own drum is especially hard when you're a celebrity who constantly has to worry about maintaining a positive public image. But RiRi said she's going to live her life the way she wants because she wants to be happy.

"I'm going to look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it – and I lived it for me," Rihanna said.
