Well she is a Bad Gal! Rihanna poses topless but for some artfully placed squares of paper on the Brazilian Island Of Angra dos Reis
Stripping off: Rihanna wore a series of different outfits that showcased her toned figure
Diving in: Despite the lad's mag style photos, the shoot was actually for fashion magazine Vogue Brazil
Just small strips of tape obscured the singer's nipples as she stood posing on the sand in the shots, taken last week.
For one series of pictures Rihanna wore a pair of gold boy short bikini bottoms, which she teamed with armfuls of bangles, and a colourful headscarf.
The 25-year-old stood smouldering at the photographer, giving her best pout.

And it seemed she was equally relaxed doing so in front of the camera.

Still topless, she managed to break a smile as she laughed with her team between poses.

While the revealing outfits might be deemed a little too racy by some stars, Rihanna certainly didn't seem phased.
She laughed and joked with her team between takes, with one unguarded moment catching her smiling as she posed in a green designer jacket and a black hat featuring the name 'Vogue'.
And while the topless shoot might look a little out of place on the pages of the US version of the magazine, for Brazil Vogue it is positively demure.
