Rihanna Got Naked & Put Snakes On Her Head For GQ

Rihanna continues her streaking streak for one of her more risqué shoots of late. Cult-artist Damien Hirst teamed up with the pop star for GQ's British edition November issue. For the shoot, Rihanna took her clothes off, donned a metallic bikini bottom, and the rest is history.
Quite literally, in fact, as Hirst's contribution pulled iconography from the ancient Greek myth of Medusa. He elevated Rih's pretty generic poses (how many variations of the finger-in-mouth pout are there, really?) into works of hyper-realistic art. Rih's a full-blown Medusa (with her head!) on the cover and continues to play with the reptiles as the shoot unfolds.

Any one looking for a last-minute Halloween costume has lucked out with this one. All that's needed to achieve this look is a vat of toy snakes (or real ones), shiny undies, snake-eye contacts, and BAM! — you're Rihanna. Oh, and, since it's RiRi, the shirt's obviously optional.
