The V Magazine 'Kingdom Come' editorial gets hot and steamy with a stripper theme and R&B star R. Kelly himself. Living the high life, he graces the pages of the Music Issue alongside Russian model Irina Shayk, who shows off her pole dancing moves as well as a little something more. A combination of brightly colored images and more erotic black and white ones, the photoshoot teases from beginning to end.

Shot by photographer Albert Watson, the V Magazine 'Kingdom Come' editorial may take an erotic turn, but that doesn't mean it sacrifices on elegance. It focuses on the latter by showcasing the glamorous spring designs of Chanel, Prada, Cosabella and more. Styled by Anna Trevelyan, the looks were perfected with windswept hair and full makeup.
