Rihanna headed to the exclusive Italian eatery Ill Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California, on Thursday (May 17, 2012) and stunned diners with her, somewhat, dressed down appearance. The Talk That Talk singer chose a casual lacy white boob tube top and revealing crochet skirt for the dinner.
The Barbadian singer accessorised the risque look with sandals and some gold jewellery, leaving her hair in a loose style. The 24-year-old was taking a break from promoting her new movie Battleship in the United States to enjoy a relaxed dinner with a friend. Earlier in the day, the singer had appeared shocked at the news that disco legend Donna Summer had lost her battle with cancer, first tweeting, "Donna Summer??" before re-tweeting one of her followers tributes to the late star, which read, "Rip Donna Summer, Queen of Disco!!". Her new action sci-fi movie has already raked in millions following its European release, and studio bosses probably expected it to debut at No.1 on the U.S. Box Office. However, the all-conquering 'Avengers' movie has now taken well over $1 billion and should continue its dominance this weekend, leaving Battleship to settle for second place.
Speaking to MTV News about her foray into the movie world, Rihanna said, "There's nothing you can have under your belt with acting, not in my opinion, because I'm not a natural. This isn't my first [career choice], so I don't know. I think it's always going to be a challenge for me, but I like that".
