Rihanna is on the cover of the latest December issue of Esquire UK.

The beautiful island gal appears in the magazine prancing around in nothing but briefs and a smile. The photos were shot by famed photographer Elle Von Unwerth in NYC. As of late the Pop princess has had the Internet a buzz, returning to Instagram, appearing at Club Opus on Halloween dressed as a Ninja Turtle and also having a rumored new album in the works. Rihanna is ready to make her return (as if she ever left). She’s recently been doing promo for her new men’s fragrance. In 2011 Esquire named Ri Ri the sexiest woman alive and from the looks of these photos Bad Gal wants her spot back. Also in the issue, Miss Fenty shares her favorite food recipes from her home town Barbados. Enjoy the sexy photos below and keep your eyes and ears open for more info on her next album set to be released before Christmas. IMG_3620.JPG
