London, Feb 20: Rihanna showed off some serious skin for her first cover shoot for Elle magazine.
In a leaked image of her forthcoming photoshoot, 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, the Daily Mail reported.
The photos were taken by Mariano Vivanco at a Paris studio, with the singer in a series of monochrome ensembles.
Her photoshoot comes as she plans to launch her debut fashion collection Rihanna for River Island on March 4.
On Saturday, she made a brief appearance on the catwalk at her London Fashion Week show. (ANI)
