We SO wish we’d been a part of Rihanna’s starry gang at the Rock In Rio festival

On many occasion we’ve found ourselves wondering what it would be like to hang out with Rihanna (don’t deny it, you have to) and come to the conclusion that it would be pretty cool.

What stars including Rihanna REALLY weigh

We’ve also had the same idea about Ri-Ri’s pal Cara Delevingne and singer Sam Smith. So imagine our delight when we discovered that these three have been hanging out TOGETHER – and it looked just as amazing as we’d hoped!

Yep, Rihanna, Cara and Sam all found themselves at the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil over the weekend, where both Ri-Ri and Sam were set to perform.

Both still found time to enjoy the festivities though and partied with mutual pal Cara, 23, at the event.

Sam, also 23, left the mixed reviews of his James Bond theme behind as he posed for hilare photos with Cara, including one of the model straddling him in front of a helicopter (as you do).

‘Helicopter Virginity has been taken @caradelevingne ❤️,’ Sam captioned the snap, referring to the fact that it was his first time in the aircraft – awww!

Cara even shared a cute video of an excited Sam during the flight and wrote: ‘I ❤️ this boy so much! @samsmithworld first helicopter ride’

How adorbs are these two? We SO want to hang out with them – and lucky ‘ol Ri-Ri, 27, got to do just that.

Cara and Sam watched the Diamonds singer perform and were stunned by her set, with Sam telling his social media followers: ‘Hands down the best pop show I have EVER seen. *On my knees and continuously bowing* @badgalriri’

Wow, praise indeed! Cara was equally filled with love for her bestie, writing: ‘So much ❤️! I cannot begin to explain how much fun I had last night, this girl continues to blow me away with her talent and dedication and I am so proud of her.

‘I would happily watch that show everyday #RockinRio #canwedothatagainplease’

Er, if you’re doing it again can we come next time?

During the rest of the weekend Cara spent some quality time soaking up the sun with Rihanna and friends and they certainly made a glamorous gang. Which, if we haven’t made it clear enough already, we would very much like to join. Just give us a bell, guys…
