Today marks the pop star's 26th birthday, and unfortunately we don't have any cake cake, cake, cake, cake to celebrate, but we do have a good amount of candy— eye candy, that is. The Barbados beauty may have opted to cover up well, for the most part for her special day this year, by partying in the snowy mountains of Aspen with friends, but RiRi is no stranger to flaunting her killer curves in barely-there outfits. So, to celebrate the Unapologetic singer's big day, we've chosen 26 of our favorite sexy pictures of Rihanna from the past year. When the only thing between you and Rih's naked body is Kate Moss.

How very dare a woman turn up to an awards ceremony looking so brazenly intimidating, the press cried? Whether they agree with the shimmering statement or not, Rihanna succeeded in shocking everyone — which is probably exactly what she wanted. She accessorised with a white fur stole, smoking eyes, glittering gloves and a turban that referenced the style of glamorous Twenties flapper girls. The fearless and brave move is largely characteristic of the star, who is unapologetically and refreshingly herself. Unlike many of her peers she is just 26 , she truly appears not to care what anyone thinks. As anyone who travelled on the infamous tour in November can attest, she is a woman completely in control of her ship. I thought it was beautiful. The picture depicted her sitting on the floor topless although her bare chest was not on display with her legs raised up against a large bottle of her perfume. Rihanna recently deleted her Instagram account, after the social network censored a topless picture shot for a French magazine. The year-old US Vogue creative director was temporarily banned after sharing a line drawing of herself topless.
She's definitely "Unapologetic," posing topless on the cover of her upcoming seventh studio album. A frequent Instagram user, Rihanna posted a topless shot to show off her new under-breast tattoo. The one place Rihanna should have -- but didn't -- get totally naked? In the advertisements for her Nude perfume. Splashing around on vacation, Rihanna decided to leave her top behind as she went for a swim this summer.
Published in Esquire's November issue, on sale now. Subscribe today. She comes onto the stage in a cage. She wears a shiny blue raincoat, a jewel-encrusted bikini peeking out of it. Tall platform heels. Her curly red wig bounces as she skips out of the cage and intimately into our lives. She grabs her own radiant ass — she handles it, offers it — like it's a rump roast. She squats and spreads her legs, settles a hand between them, where it stays. Caresses her breasts.
