RIHANNA entices tourists to book a flight to Barbados in a new ad drive for her native country.

The pop superstar rests her head on a rock as she enjoys a relaxing dip in the clear sea that surrounds the Caribbean island.

More importantly, Rihanna sends temperatures soaring in a red bikini top – a sight the Barbados Tourism Authority will be hoping catches the attention of those seeking sun and sand in warmer climes.

Rihanna has lent her famous face and body to previous Barbados tourism campaigns, helping her home island thrive in the competitive holiday market.

Meanwhile, the singer – currently travelling the globe on her Diamonds World Tour – spent yesterday at the decadent home of legendary designer Coco Chanel in Paris.

Rihanna was treated to a private tour of Chanel’s former apartment in the French capital, and was also gifted a yellow bag from the fashion house.

The spoilt star posted several snaps of her trip to Chanel’s home, including one of Rihanna holding a no smoking sign with an unlit ciggie rebelliously dangling from her mouth.

Another image sees the chart-topper spread out on a chaise longue and looking down at a photograph of the designer, who died in 1971 at the age of 87.
