Esquire magazine has named Rihanna the "Sexiest Woman Alive," and the Rihanna Esquire November 2011 editorial spread puts any arguments against that title to rest.

Wearing nothing but a few strips of seaweed, a bit of dirt and a whole lot of oil, the greased-up Barbados native looks stunning. The Rihanna Esquire November 2011 behind-the-scenes video is just as provocative, and features the pop star rubbing dirt all over herself while seducing the camera.

In the accompanying interview, Rihanna talks about her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, claiming to be a huge fan of his music. "I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career," she explains. "I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have."
