Barbadian pop princess Rihanna took Sin City by storm, where she rang in 2011 in true RiRi style.

Rihanna spends the holidays in Barbados, but then took off to Las Vegas to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the Las Vegas hotspot.

Prior to her arrival to PURE Nightclub, hundreds of fans lined up along the casino floor next to the nightclub and waited patiently for the celebrity’s arrival.

Just after 11 pm, the packed resort was filled with screaming and cheering guests as Rihanna made her way to the red carpet. Donning an attention-grabbing and revealing red and see-through dress, the edgy fashion forward stunner turned heads as she posed for pictures.

Just before midnight, Rihanna took center stage as she amped up the crowd by getting on the mic and prepping them for the anticipated countdown to 2011.

RiRi counted down the last 10 seconds of the year; toasted revelers and wished them Happy New Year as the clock struck midnight.

There was no special kiss for her at midnight, but did hug the close friends that surrounded her.
