Rihanna is the center of everyone’s attention these last few days. What with her much anticipated comeback to Instagram, and her hot Elle photoshoot, she’s making sure the public knows that the original bad gal is back (although she never really left). Now, she has another sexy magazine cover to her name, with Esquire UK just revealing the cover for its December issue that features the star cavorting around in the shower in white boy briefs, and not much else.

Shot by Elle Von Unwerth in New York City, Rihanna flaunts that famous figure and multiple tattoos in a series of super steamy black and white images. Being that the December issue is also a food and drink special, the magazine also asked Rihanna to share her personal favorite recipes which include a rum punch and Barbados-style shepherd’s pie.

Esquire named Rihanna the Sexiest Woman Alive back in 2011, and from the looks of these photos she might be coming for that number one spot again this year. Check them out below, and be sure to pick up a copy on newsstands now to check the full interview.
