She put on her most energetic and theatrical-costumed performance to date in the music video for her new single Where Have You Been? when it was released at the end of last month, and now Rihanna has revealed just how she achieved her animalistic look for the film shot to accompany her latest track.
The 24-year-old star posted snaps of herself getting geared up for her several different appearances on her Facebook page yesterday, with many of the shots featuring the star baring plenty of flesh. Never one to shy away from baring ample flesh, Rihanna can be seen topless as she gets crocodile scales painted on her chest and spine by make-up artists.
The professionals did a good job of covering up her nipple piercing which she has flaunted while out on the event circuit on occasion. When she did not have the illusion of an animal exterior protecting her modesty, she concealed most of her chest using her hands and arms.
As well as photographs of her donning a leopard print robe and zebra skin ensemble, she also shared an image of her rehearsing for dance routine in the studio. She recently said: 'Because my schedule has always been so busy, it never allowed for us to spend time rehearsing and making up dance moves. I was never going to shoot this video if I couldn't do choreography. Because it would be pretty pointless. It would be disappointing.'
We recently revealed how Rihanna is considering a $1 million offer to pose naked for playboy. We can't help thinking the star will accept this offer!
