The 'Diamonds' singer uploaded 13 images from her Complex 'Full Exposure' photoshoot, including a series of her baring her chest as she pulls a T-shirt from her body. Only her hands prevent her from being topless.
Another sexy shot shows Rihanna baring her legs as she bends over to use her laptop, before she turns a retro camera on herself.
Addressing her love for publishing photos of herself on Instagram, Rihanna told the publication: "It's narcissistic, but whatever - everyone does it.
"I'm capturing personality... Everybody has their thing they like or don't like to see. It's all in your head.
"That's why people take their own pictures, because it's difficult for someone else to capture what you seek."
In seven pictures from the shoot - which will be used as Complex covers - Rihanna puts a sexy spin on the artwork for all of her albums.

The photos and a full interview with Rihanna will appear in Complex's February/March issue.
