Rihanna Named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ by Esquire Magazine

Rihanna

Rihanna’s sex appeal is undeniable, but now the editors of Esquire magazine have declared the Barbados beauty as 2011’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.” She takes the honors from actress Minka Kelly, who graced last year’s cover. In the black-and-white photo shoot, RiRi strips down, rubbing dirt all over her smokin’ body. The teaser will have you hitting play over and over again.

In related news, the singer has scrapped plans for a LOUD re-release and is instead readying an entirely new body of work. “I tht abt a RihRelease, but LOUD is its own body of work! Plus u guys work so F?CKIN hard that u deserve to act brand new!!!” she informed one fan on Twitter.

    @UGGHHH, I believe the Editors chose Rihanna but viewers (5 million ppl) chose Katrina Bowden. Big Difference. Editors want to sell magazine covers but Katrina is indeed the Sexiest WOman Alive.

    @tiff, Actually the video was posted on Esquire’s website but quickly removed so I think Esquire made a mistake with naming Rihanna when she didnt actually win…this is why all the blogs declaring Rihanna the winner are posting TwitVIDs of the video. Rih didnt win it :-(

    I just read it over at Huffington Post who posted her winning and then updated it correcting it saying she was not named. But they did say she came close

    Bar Rafaeli the Israeli model did a similar shot recently she was cover in mud,no one complained.Anyways it always the basic minded bitches. When you lack is Artistic vision you would not appreciate Rihanna’s esquire shoot.Beauty in Art is not about just being dress up like doll,it’s about seeing the raw beauty of a woman or man even when they are dress down or in this case covered in dirt, or even mud. I remember Beyonce did a shoot with her face painted black and the Bey stans were praising it,and to be quite honest the shoot was not her best.Why this young Black girl is hated by her own people -black folks I would never understand and quite frankly it disgust me I’m white. Black folks when will you ever learn that self hatred for yourself and each other is your biggest down fall.

    Very deserving!!! She was voted for the title by the public! The public has spoken! She is one of the youngest to ever be crowned! She’s the only musician ever! She’s the second black woman. It’s great to see a black woman with black features i.e. her nose voted the sexiest woman alive! She’s forever breaking boundaries! Barbados must be proud of you, gyal!!! I can’t wait to see the spread, her Armani ads and British Vogue! WOW! Rihanna, we are NOT WORTHY!!! Thank you!!!#RihannaNavy #yourfavhasandcouldnever #dealwithit

    @Holler., first off not everybody has the same taste and since rihanna was the editors choice for sexiest woman alive, then obviously she is attractive. Unless you yourself win the award you have very little say in who is attractive and who isn’t. and i prefer natural beauty over plastic surgery any day. beyonce bought her boobs, rihanna is perfectly happy with her little ones, and that makes her so much more beautiful.

    Get a life. No one is hating. We are simply stating the fact. She was not named sexiest woman alive! SImple. IS she sexy? Hell yes, she is. But all this letters about people hating her just because they are stating the fact is straight up stupid.

    @beth,
    You may not be hating, but the people who are calling her a ‘greased up pig’ and other pointless names that do nothing to take away from her success IS HATING.

    It is not a fact that she looks like a greased up pig, it’s an opinion. Please read all the comments before making a comment on them.

    @Love, Rihanna is trying to catch up w/ Beyonce. This chick is not doing anything that King B has NOT done. Rihanna is pretty but sexy? NOT SO MUCH however she can have this award that was given to her by the editors (who are trying to sell magazines). Because fan or not, you know she will not be winning any prestigious awards soon (i.e., a Grammy, an Emmy, etc.) because those awards require you have talent. And the only talent this chick has is taking off her clothes or mumbling her way through a song about sex.

    Don’t get me wrong, Rihanna is so beautiful but not the ‘sexiest woman alive.’ Then again, it’s all based on opinion and personal tastes. Watching this video is such a turn off. She looks too young to be labeled ‘sexy.’ The older the women, the sexier they are. Kelly Rowland for example has gotten sexier with age IMO. She would look so good on an Esquire cover.

    @say what, You are correct, she keeps reaching milestones in HER career. I don’t think people are “hating” (isn’t this term so 2000) but stating their opinion. You may think she is beautiful & so do the editors that GAVE her this award but she may not be everyone’s taste. Truthfully speaking there are alot of sexy women out there.
