Rihanna pays tribute to late designer Alexander McQueen in the latest issue of AnOther magazine (we've never heard of it, either), wearing an array of black leather outfits that make it appear she's got Fifty Shades of Grey on the brain.

The 26-year-old singer was shot by famed fashion photographer team Inez & Vinoodh for the magazine, and even wore one outfit that exposed one of her breasts entirely. The singer posted several of the photos on her Instagram page, and, naturally, the site removed the artistic shot that featured her bare breast. We hope she doesn't shut down her account agai...

The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Grammy Awards
Fashion at the Grammy Awards is always entertaining. It's a chance for celebs to have a little fun with their style without being constrained by the "rules" often dictated by more formal award shows.
