Rihanna isn’t one to shy away from showing some skin, but this weekend she chose to cover up … sort of — she shielded her face with over-the-top sunglasses!

The stylish superstar performed at the BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, a free music festival in honor of the upcoming Olympics, while rocking crazy shades on Saturday and Sunday.

Making a surprise appearance during her mentor Jay-Z’s headlining set on the first night of the concert, Rihanna sported binocular-inspired KTZ by Linda Farrow Project spectacles teamed with her signature red lip and extra-long talons.

The Bajan beauty headlined her own set on Sunday while donning a pair of statement-making gold-embellished Mercura NYC stunners paired with an equally eye-catching House of Lavande vintage gold spiked collar necklace.

Although these styles might be too over-the-top for your average girl on the street, we’re actually kind of loving them on Rihanna. Tell us: Are Rihanna’s sunglasses cool or crazy? Would you wear them?
