She recently featured on a sultry Rolling Stones cover as she made startling revelations about her reconciliation with Chris Brown.
And Rihanna cuts an equally smouldering figure in new outtakes from the shoot by acclaimed celebrity photographer Terry Richardson.
One striking photograph features the 24-year-old star holding a hand rolled cigarette while puffing smoke towards the camera.
With her hair partially shaved at the side,the star shows off several of her tattoos as she poses and pouts in just a flimsy vest top and no bra.
She shows off her curves in another provocative pose which puts her bare legs on show.
However, in another shot posted by Richardson, she dresses up in a high necked blouse, black leather skirt and jacket, while still clutching her trusty cigarette.
The star spoke to the magazine about her relationship with Brown, after forgiving him for beating her nearly four years ago.
In the interview, Rihanna appeared to officially confirm they are an item again following Brown's split from model Karrueche Tran last October.
