Rihanna's known for her fearless attitude to fashion, performing and modelling so going topless with a reptile wrapped round her neck was never going to make her wince.
She's been getting pretty cosy to a new companion whilst posing up a storm for the new 25th anniversary cover of British GQ Magazine.
With snakes for hair and eerie Halloween contact lenses, Rihanna graces the front cover in a Medusa style photo shoot.
Looking more sexy than scary she seems very comfortable to be chest to chest with the slithering python. Rather her than us!
With her jet black talons and her Egyptian themed chest tattoo in full view she just about manages to cover her modesty with her arms.
In another full length and extra leggy shot, the Pour It Up singer struts her stuff in a sequin thong whilst the snake is left to roam her décolletage.
As if one real snake wasn't enough, she couldn't resist the chance to wrestle with two large reptiles as she draped them down the length of her body.
Fangs poised and tongue out Miley Cyrus style she pretends to sink her teeth into the slippery pair of pythons.
The Greek goddess cover, shot by photographer Mariano Vivanco, obviously left a lasting impression on Rihanna as she took to Instagram to share her snaps.
She captioned one pic: "I love playing with dominant animals! These 2 were double the trouble, but they're superstars!!!"
The 25th anniversary special issue is out on 31st October, just in time for a Halloween spook!
