Rihanna’s Topless ‘Lui’ Magazine Cover Might Be Her Most NSFW Yet

On the new issue of the French men’s magazine Lui, Rihanna is looking very au natural—this time without her hands as a censor. WOWOWOWOW. For her being sans shirt (and pants, for that matter), there’s a surprising amount of styling at work. Of course, we all know where the eye gravitates, so I’m just going to put it out there: Rihanna has a screw through her nipple. (Recall our first hint at it when she wore a cardigan—and only a cardigan—to Chanel’s Fall 2014 show.) It’s not pictured here because we have RULES, but you can peep it for yourself over at Lui. Ouch? Maybe it’s just us, but somehow, Rihanna’s bucket hat and braids steal the show, despite all the skin. V. ’90s. We like.

Inside the magazine, we finally understand that risqué mystery photo shoot that leaked a few weeks ago—you know, the one where the only thing Rihanna is wearing below her waist is a pair of Adidas Stan Smiths. Apparently, this shoot was less about clothes and more about TAN LINES.

Considering the number of images she posted from her Vogue Brazil shoot, it seems safe to say that Rihanna will be posting the majority, if not all, of the ones from Lui on Instagram. Otherwise, the magazine will be on newsstands tomorrow.
