When ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ was still a twinkle in E.L. James’s eye, Rihanna was singing about “chains and whips” exciting her, so it’s no surprise to see her donning some S&M attire in some brand new pics.
In her latest high-fashion shoot for AnOther magazine, where she’s been styled by Inez & Vinoodh and Katy England, the ‘We Found Love’ singer pays tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, as part of a photo spread celebrating his past, present and future designs.
The photo-shoot comes around the fifth anniversary of his death, which rocked the fashion world in February 2010.
Rihanna dons an Alexander McQueen eye-mask for AnOther magazine
RiRi poses while wearing a provocative leather eyemask designed by McQueen and not a great deal else in the new pics, which see her laying on the floor in a pair of high heels and leather lingerie, to match her eye-mask.
In another, slightly less raunchy snap, the singer models some of the trademark McQueen platform shoes that have previously been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga.
RiRi's shoe game is strong
Rihanna is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming eighth album, which is being executive produced by Kanye West.
After a long break from releasing music (well, at least it was long by Rihanna’s usual five-singles-a-guest-feature-and-a-surprise-remix-a-month standards), she unveiled her new song ‘FourFiveSeconds’, last month, which features Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye.
