Rihanna Poses For Esquire In Her Sexiest Shoot Yet

Esquire's July 2012 cover features Rihanna posing in some of her most incredible photos yet.

Check out the exclusive Rihanna photos and behind-the-scenes video.

She doesn't stop. Last year she made her film debut in Battleship, and as well as promoting sixth album Talk That Talk and releasing her seventh, Unapologetic, she lent her vocals to songs with Coldplay (Princess of China) and Drake (Take Care).
