When it comes to the cover of a women's magazine, we expect Rihanna to tone down her usual overt sexuality. And in a leaked image of her forthcoming ELLE UK covershoot, the singer manages to channel a sophisticated sexiness in a halterneck top and mini-skirt.

With her hair cropped short, the 24-year-old smoulders as she looks straight ahead of the camera for the April issue of the glossy.

Meanwhile, Rihanna is rumoured to have already split from Chris Brown following their recent reconciliation. The R&B bad boy was nowhere to be seen as Rihanna partied with friends on Valentine's Day. The couple had only gone public together at a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game on Christmas Day. In a recent interview, the singer opened up on their controversial reconciliation four years after Chris assaulted her following a pre-Grammy party.

She said: "I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."
