Rihanna's Racy Cover Shoot For 'Esquire UK' Will Make Your Jaw Drop

*fans self*

When Rihanna arrived back on Instagram this weekend, I was actually astounded time didn't stop or a parade wasn't immediately held in her honor (#rude). Despite this super disrespectful lack of public fanfare, badgalriri has been uploading photos left and right, from birthday parties, to her sick Halloween costume, to a sneak peak at her upcoming December cover for Elle magazine, which the mag described as "boldly stripped down."

Well, it seems she's also stripping down (way, way down) for the December cover of UK Esquire's 'Food & Drink' themed issue, and to say the spread is amazing would pretty much be the understatement of the century.

No, seriously. Look.

She uploaded a few other pictures from the spread, which was shot by famed fashion photog Ellen von Unwerth, and full disclosure—you might need a super strong fan or some ice water to get through the rest of it. Rihanna SLAYS.

BOOM!

BLADOW!

YOWZA!

Black and white pictures + a shower hose - clothing = Rihanna's best spread eva, IMHO. If she was looking for a way to truly ring in the return of her reign over Instagram, these pictures straight up nailed it. Bless you, Rih-Rih, BLESS YOU.
