Rihanna looked stunning as always as she showed off her legs in a shimmering green mini dress for the day of activities on the water.

Her brunette tresses were worn down into waves that cascaded down her shoulder as she accentuated her natural looks with complementary make-up. 

She accessorized with black designer shades, multiple long gold chains, rings and bracelets.

The two have each had high-profile relationships since then as Rihanna was in a serious relationship with Toyota heir and billionaire from Saudi Arabia, Hassan Jameel, for years while Rocky dated Kendall Jenner.
