Summer is behind us, but Rihanna continues to heat things up on the cover of Esquire UK's December issue.

RiRi flaunts her fit frame in one of her sexiest semi-clothed photo shoots ever. Shot by the legendary photographer Ellen Von Unwerth -- also the Bajan beauty's bestie -- the singer dons a wet and wavy dark mane in the steamy spread. She shows off her fresh-out-of-the-shower caramel-colored skin in a variety of stages of dress, play and, of course, sexiness.

In one photo Ri’s sleek silhouette is shown fully topless, with her arms strategically placed to cover her chest. Meanwhile, a pair of denim jeans rests open on her thighs revealing a trail of tattoos going towards her most private parts.

Rihanna looks just as hot in white high-waist briefs and a grey tank top, carrying out the wet and steamy theme with water stains placed over her assets.

The December issue is not only all about the ‘Unapologetic’ singer, but it also happens to be the magazine’s food and drink special. Ri also shares her favorite recipes from rum punch to Bajan shepherd's pie.

This week, Rihanna has been making headlines for her unexpected return to Instagram, in addition to her high-fashion spread for Elle Magazine.
