Rihanna appeared on the cover of Elle UK's April 2013 issue with an attention-grabbing headline.
"'I Will Have a Child' So Let's Talk Chris...- Elle Interviewer" read the front of the monthly magazine. In the cover image, Rihanna, 25, wears a black-and-white checkered crop top and mini-skirt. The look is more demure than her other magazine covers in the past year where she went topless for GQ, Complex and Rolling Stone.
The photo showed off the Diamonds singer's toned legs and part of her mid-section but her tattoos were covered and she did not bare any cleavage. The Bajan beauty sported a short, black pixie haircut with her signature bold red lipstick.
Photographer Mariano Vivanco took the pictures of the pop singer in a Paris studio. Below is a behind-the-scenes look of Rihanna posing for the camera in the City of Light.
ELLE UK offers Rihanna's fans the chance to attend an intimate party with the singer-turned-designer who just launched her Rihanna for River Island fashion line during London Fashion Week earlier in February. Five winners can take a friend with them to meet Rihanna at an exclusive launch party on March 4 hosted by River Island and shop her debut collection before anyone else.
