Boxing Day beauty: Rihanna wears a black panther swimsuit in Barbados

Rihanna spent the day after Christmas relaxing on Sandy Lane beach in her home country of Barbados.

The singer hit the surf in a very eye-catching and unique panther-design swimsuit.

And even though the suit was a one-piece, it still managed to emphasise the 22-year-old's enviable curves.

The swimsuit is made by designer label We Are Famous and costs £195.00.

Rihanna is spending Christmas with her family in Barbados before jetting back to the U.S in time for New Year's Eve.

After doing her Christmas shopping in Los Angeles earlier this week, the Umbrella star jetted to Barbados's Grantley Adams Airport via Miami on Wednesday.

At Miami, she bumped into her mother Monica and her aunt so they boarded the flight back to Barbados together.

Writing on her Twitter, she enthused: 'I'm in Miami Airport...Guess who just popped up and surprised me @ my Gate???

'My mooooommmyyyyy....and my AUNTY. We all going home together.. Barbados I love you.'

After spending Christmas in the Caribbean, Rihanna will fly to Las Vegas for New Year's Eve, where she will see in 2011 performing at the Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace.

And she is clearly excited about it, posting about it on her Twitter on Wednesday.

She says: 'Damn Its not even Christmas yet and I'm thinking abt NYE!Who's comin out to party with me @ PURE? FYI I'm NOT performing but I'm DEF PARTYIN.'

Meanwhile, there is growing speculation Rihanna has split from baseball star boyfriend Matt Kemp.

The couple were last photographed together in New York in November, with the singer spending most of the past few weeks travelling between North America and Europe promoting her new album Loud.

Friends of the singer said they were not expected to spend the holiday season together.

The couple started dating in late 2009.
