Rihanna Bares All For The Cover Of Esquire

We're used to seeing Rihanna wearing, well, not very much - from her skimpy stage costumes, to her risque video shoots and steamy ad campaigns - but she's gone one step further to in her role as US Esquire's latest cover girl, opting to go without clothing completely.

The singer has stripped off to go nude for the mens' mag's November issue (save for a couple of strategically-placed leaves) in which she is crowned the "Sexiest Woman Alive."

And naturally it doesn't end there. RiRi stars in an accompanying video to celebrate her newfound Sexiest Woman title, which essentially involves her covering herself in lots of dirt to the backing track of her new single. (Which we love, and has now been stuck in our heads all morning.)
