Rihanna Gets Sexy & Backless For ‘ELLE’ UK — See The Pic

This gorgeous gal has been rocking her crazy-cool style ever since ‘Pon De Replay.’ From award-winning performer to sexy fashion model, RiRi is one of the most respected names in the business right now, and these pics are sure to uphold that perfect reputation.

Rihanna, 24, looks flawlessly feminine in her shoot for the April 2013 issue of ELLE UK. The star strays from her usual loud style and tones it down for a more subtle, yet absolutely gorgeous look. The recording artist/actress/designer, and of course, model, was the perfect pick to execute this powerful shoot!

Rihanna’s signature pixie cut is dyed a bold, jet black, creating a confident flair against her sultry expression. Her caramel skin looks untouchable against the pop of red on her parted lips. Could she be any more desirable?! Photographer Mariano Vivanco  captured her in a sexy, over-the-shoulder pose that accentuated her figure with ease.

The fashion icon is sporting a white, backless halter tucked into a high-waisted leather skirt. Though it’s definitely toned down, her edgy look didn’t disappear completely! Rihanna shows off her bare back and the tail-end of her rib tattoo which says “Freedom in Christ” in Arabic.

Though we’re used to the singer showing more skin than most of her fellow spotlight stealers, it’s rare that we see her pull it off in such a tasteful fashion. She looks completely effortless in her new pics, yet still portrays a really strong sense of confidence that never seems to falter.

HollywoodLifers, we can’t get enough of Rihanna’s feminine glare, but what do YOU think of Rihanna’s ELLE shoot? Do you think she rocks the subtly sexy style or should she stick to her typical out-of-the-box trendiness? Let us know by casting your vote and dropping a comment below!

Wildfire may rage! around her!!!! but? she! Shines bright like a Diamond!!

She rocks a short style better than the long wigs and weaves…just a man’s opinon. I like low maintence women, that can run their fingers through their hair and be ready to go in a minute….I’m impatient, don’t like to wait a hour for you to get ready for a movie…it’s not that serious.

Wow that’s a change I thought men liked long hair? I think she looks incredible with any length hair, although wasn’t digg’n the bright red locks or blonde. I’d have to agree with you though my fav is this pixie cut!

This photo is really nice and if anyone says other wise they are straight up hating and must be Karruche fans. I am not even a Rihanna fan, prefer Bey but give credit where it’s due.
