Last week she enjoyed her first date in two years, stepping out hand-in-hand with her best friend Melissa Forde
And tonight Rihanna showed her metal in a long shiny silver dress as she stepped out to dinner in New York tonight.
The lycra ensemble hugged her every curve and the singer teamed the bright dress with a light-coloured denim jacket.
While the singer took her hemline down
for the evening she stepped out sporting a short cropped hair style, a
different look to her long locks of last week.
Rihanna teamed the dress with a pair of black strappy sandals and a black bag as she headed to Silvano Restaurant in West Village.
It appeared that the singer had a love hate relationship with the cameras at one point she was seen smiling seductively while in another shot she is seen glaring into the lense.

Rihanna has been very busy in recent
weeks and last Friday she was seen taking part in a cover shoot for
Harper's Bazaar magazine.
The singer is reportedly on the lookout for a London home as she prepares to film a new TV series in the capital.
The party-loving Rude Boy singer is set to live in the UK from May to July for a new Sky Living reality show, and according to The Sun she has told her team to locate a suitable pad.

'Although there may be occasional trips away, she'll be based here in
London. Rihanna has instructed her team to find a mansion in or around
The insider went on: 'Earlier this
year she considered buying a property in east London but now she's
looking elsewhere as she's decided the pad will need gates to keep away
super-fans and photographers.'
Rihanna will be searching for
undiscovered fashion talent on the new TV show, working alongside
designer Henry Holland and Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts.
The singer is thought to have filmed two episodes earlier this year and is due to return next month.
