RiRi thanks fans for unforgettable opening night

Rihanna has begun her Diamonds world tour in Buffalo, New York. 
She may have been fashionably late, but she managed to avoid any Bieber-style booing and instead won the crowd over with some serious outfits. 
The outfits for the tour were designed by her River Island co-designer Adam Selman. From motorbike trousers to a holographic dress, Rihanna has one serious wardrobe. 
The fans clearly loved what they saw, with Rihanna saying on stage: "You guys are all rockstars. There is only one first show, you all have a special place in my heart," she said.

She also tweeted: "I will never forget how you made me feel tonight!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
