Rihanna Covers ‘Elle’s December Issue: See All 9 Of The Sexy Photos (Yep, Including The Topless One)

What does Rihanna have up her sleeve? (Hopefully it’s at least the gift of a brand new single before 2014 winds down to an unceremonious end.) The Barbadian songbird fired up her Instagram account over the weekend following a six-month absence from the photo sharing site, and now she’s gracing the cover of Elle‘s December issue, courtesy of photos by Paolo Kudacki that range from glamorous to playful to straight-up sexy.

The publication’s site notes that we’ll have to wait until the magazine hits newsstands (on November 18) to see the full cover story, but for now they’ve offered up a short and simple Q&A that contains such gems as this: What’s on your Christmas list? “A big, trimmed ****!!”

Flip through Rihanna’s glam pics from Elle‘s December issue in the gallery above.
