She is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world.

And Rihanna proved worthy of the title as she commanded attention at the premiere of Ocean's 8 in New York City on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old pop sensation oozed glamour in a dazzling purple couture number as she lead the star-studded red carpet affair. 

 

Dazzling: Rihanna, 30, commanded attention at the world premiere of Ocean's 8 in New York City on Tuesday

 

Daring to impress, the Umbrella songstress turned all the heads in the glamourous dress that featured bell shaped fringe.

Her gorgeous gams were on full display as the fabulous dress cut just around the knee and draped asymmetrically.  

Allowing the fashion forward sartorial choice to speak for itself, Rihanna opted for minimal accessories with only a set of floral shaped earrings and small clutch.

The sensational deep purple color of the fabric highlighted her perfect skin tone.

Throwing caution to the wind, the darling diva went virtually makeup free with only a slight smokey eye and deep berry lip.  

Her trademark raven tresses were left long and slicked straight as they cascaded over her back.

Meanwhile, the Barbadian beauty has broken up with her billionaire boyfriend, Hassan Jameel.

According to reports the pop star ended her romance with the Saudi businessman, after supposedly 'tiring' of him,

A friend of the musician told MediaTakeOut.com: 'It's over... Rihanna broke his heart. That's what she does, break men's hearts. Rihanna just got tired of him. She gets tired of men sometimes.'

Rihanna had never confirmed the romance, thought to have started last year, but had spoken of being in a serious relationship in interviews.

The gangs all here: Cate Blanchett, Awkwafina, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, and Helena Bonham Carter joined Rihanna

Indeed in the June edition of Vogue she said her unnamed partner had given her a new outlook on life.

The Stay hitmaker explained: 'I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before.'

Meanwhile, Rihanna led the Ocean's 8 all-star cast that includes the likes of Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson and Anne Hathaway.

The movie centers on Bullock as Debbie Ocean - the sister of George Clooney's alter ego Danny Ocean from the previous movies in the franchise - who assembles a team of jewel thieves to pull off a daring heist at the annual star-studded Met Gala in New York City. 

And Rihanna had a role in creating her movie's character Nine Ball - a street-smart hacker with dreadlocks.

In a recent Vogue article, the movie's director Gary Ross remembers brainstorming ideas for her character after one of her concerts in 2016 and coming up with the idea to make Nine Ball a Barbadian native.

Lols: Something certainly seemed to tickle the Barbadian

'Rihanna is so bravely authentic. She doesn’t care what people think of her; she’s fully invested in being herself,' said Ross. 

'She also has a seriousness of purpose and focus that not a lot of people have. It’s all about the work, and it doesn’t come with any excess personal baggage.'

Ocean's 8 opens nationwide on June 8.
