Singer Rihanna sizzles on the April 2011 cover of Vogue‘s 10th anniversary ‘Shape issue,’ where Barbados-born beauty reveals she has learned to embrace her luscious curves.
“Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book,” says Rihanna. “I just feel sexy.”
The 5’8″ Rihanna, who has said she fluctuates between a size 2 and 4, works hard to maintain her svelte physique.
In addition to doing lots of cardio, the 133-pound brunette beauty lifts weights and tries to follow a low-carb diet.
“For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves,” says Rihanna.

“I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.”
Back in January, Rihanna tweeted: “Just wrapped my first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz…Rah! #SEXY” before promptly deleting what she wrote.
Incidentally, her cover dress is from Chanel’s pre-fall 2011 collection.
