Rihanna: Goes topless for Esquire mag photoshoot
Daring damsel Rihanna shows off her sultry side as she bares all in a hotly anticipated spread for Britain's Esquire magazine.
While protecting her modesty by wrapping one arm around her chest, the singer wears just a pair of jeans and a fez hat in the shots, taken by Melissa Forde.
These shots were clicked when the singer was in the UK in February.
Yet, in another shot, Rihanna wears a sexy bondage-style all-in-one, flicking her blonde hair as she shows off her curves.
It seems as though the We Found Love singer had a good time on the east London set of the shoot, as she is seen giggling and laughing while wrapped up in a patterned top in between takes.
These stunning photographs of Rihanna, taken from the upcoming July edition of the magazine, come as the singer has been linked to New York Knicks star J.R. Smith, after the pair were apparently spotting kissing at Veranda nightclub in New York earlier this month.
"They were very flirty in the club all night and holding hands. She was sitting on his lap and was really into him," the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling In Touch Weekly magazine.
The sportsman is a controversial figure, as in March he was fined 25,000 dollars by the National Basketball Association ( NBA) after tweeting a photo wearing just a thong in his bed.
"He is the team's most controversial player, so it's no wonder that Rihanna likes him," the source added.
