When it comes to the cover of a women’s magazine, we expect Rihanna to tone down her usual overt sexuality.
And in this leaked image above of her forthcoming ELLE UK covershoot, the singer manages to channel a sophisticated sexiness in a halterneck top and mini-skirt.
With her hair cropped short, the 24-year-old smoulders as she looks straight ahead of the camera for the April issue of the glossy.
ELLE UK writes: We know you can’t wait to see our April Rihanna cover, so to treat you, here is an exclusive first look at one of Rihanna’s pictures for ELLE.
The photos were taken by Mariano Vivanco at a Paris studio, with the singer in a series of monochrome ensembles.
