Raunchy Rihanna has risked more controversy after flashing her breasts during a night out at a restaurant.
The Umbrella hitmaker headed for a meal at Da Silvano in New York but shocked onlookers and fellow diners at the Italian eaterie by wearing a mesh top with her bra-less chest clearly visible underneath.

The star briefly tried to cover her assets when she spied a snapper as she left the restaurant, but then took her hands away and smiled cheekily as she clambered into her waiting car.

Rihanna has become known for her risque fashion sense and her sexy dance moves onstage, and recently defended her racy performances, insisting it’s just a part of her Barbadian culture.

She told U.K. talk show host Jonathan Ross, “I don’t really ever notice it, or think about it, until the feedback. It really made me think about this for a long time as to why it is this way, why people find it so sexual, but going back to Carnival in Barbados, the Crop Over (festival), this year I really notice that it’s a cultural thing. It’s the way we move… You can see me… half-naked, having a good time… all that good stuff.”
