The woman who turned Kate Middleton into a royal wedding princess has helped style Rihanna for a revealing new magazine tribute to the late Alexander MCQueen.

MCQueen's creative director Sarah Burton, who designed Middleton's wedding gown, has created a pair of custom-made wool trousers for the R&B superstar.

Rihanna has posted a selection of her stylish AnOther magazine shoot photos online, including one in which her right breast is left exposed.

In another shot, the Umbrella singer writhes around on the floor in underwear and high heels with her face covered by a mask.

The eye-catching photos also feature Rihanna in sky-high footwear from Lee MCQueen's 1997 Givenchy collection.
