Barbadian pop star Rihanna’s Instagram account is no stranger to a heavy influx of raunchy portraits posted by herself, but the Twitter enthusiast has outdone herself this time.
The singer leaked some exclusive photographs from a shoot for V magazine, with British supermodel Kate Moss.
The leaked photographs, lensed by Mario Testino, show the two figureheads of pop and fashion getting up close and very personal, for the magazine’s March 2013 issue. Draped over each other in lace bodysuits, garters and a several pencils worth of black eyeliner, it’s no surprise the shoot received as much internet attention as it did.
While the 24-year-old was free to document the backstage session with the Victoria’s Secret models – accompanied by choice captions – Rihanna overstepped the mark when she leaked the pictures. The snaps might have bumped up Rihanna’s breezy 26 million Twitter followers, but V magazine have expressed the following disappointed statement:
“It is an unfortunate case that these images were prematurely leaked, which is becoming a more prevalent issue within the industry. While we don’t condone what has happened, we are beyond excited to have gotten these two icons of music and fashion together for such a beautiful shoot. This is just a taste of all of the fabulousness that awaits in the March 2013 issue.”
So the feisty pop star got a slap on the wrist, but that obviously wasn’t enough to make her take the pictures down. She’s really taking this ‘Unapologetic’ thing seriously.
