Rihanna is a modern-day icon in a few different areas: music, fashion, beauty, and more. She continues to expand her brand to include anything that you can think of. Quite the businesswoman, Rihanna is celebrating her 31st birthday today. The star took a night off from her supposed studio sessions (we're yet to see any recent proof that she's still working on the album...) to celebrate her big day, stepping out in a bright green dress.

Daily Mail managed to snap a few photos of the star on her way home from a birthday party. She was smiling big, rocking a fluorescent dress in the car. The publication is describing it as "racy" but the photos they've included don't really tell that story. In fact, you can barely see her outfit. I guess you can judge for yourself here?

This is just the start of her birthday celebrations. While she likely won't go as hard as last year when she hit the big 3-0, it's still another year in her life and she's more than happy to get together with her girls to have some fun. Last night, Rihanna was in Beverly Hills, showing off her party preparations earlier in the night for her Instagram followers. Happy birthday, Rihanna! Enjoy your big day.
