While most of her fellow pop divas like Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj worked on New Year’s Eve by performing, Rihanna took it easy. Sort of. The 23-year-old singer spent her NYE partying with rap mogul and Vodka purveyor Diddy.

She hung out instead of rocking out and that’s quite okay, since she had such a busy year in 2011. She deserved a night off to have fun, toss a few back and mingle with other celebs.

RiRi headed to Diddy’s swanky, private estate in Miami Beach, Fla. where she rubbed elbows with a more mature crowd, including Gayle King, Star Jones and Vivica A. Fox.

Just Jared posted photos of the singer, who looked demure, by RiRi standards. But she was every bit as stunning as if she was showing a whole lot of dewy skin.

RiRi was wearing a tea length, black lace sheath, which covered up her ample assets, which she usually bares. It did have an open, plunging bodice and leopard print sleeves, so she certainly still kept it sexy while going simple. She wore her hair in chocolate brown curls piled atop her head, too.

You can see RiRi mingling in this short but sweet video clip from the shindig. It’ll make you wish you were there.
