She has embodied everything from warrior princess to All-American girl in her performances.
But Rihanna channelled Cleopatra, albeit in a very risque way, during an Egyptian-themed act for some of her festival appearances this summer.
The 24-year-old shared some super sexy snaps of her racy stage shows from her own personal collection with fans today.

Doing some energetic moves, also surrounded by an army of leopard-print and pharaoh-styled men, Rihanna is seen hiking up her skirt to reveal her toned legs.

The intimate black and white pictures were taken from a few of the festivals Rihanna performed in this summer, including Wireless in London, Kollen Festival in Oslo, and Peace & Love in Borlnge, Sweden.
Now Rihanna is on holiday in France, and her antics are again not without controversy.
Last week it was reported that Rihanna and her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown had enjoyed a 'late night meeting aboard his luxury yacht' and new details of that date recently emerged.

Wild side: The popstar was also accompanied onstage by some leopard print clad men
The pair are said to have met up with one another two nights in a row but would wait until the early hours of the morning.
According to Look magazine, a crew insider revealed how an excited Rihanna said she couldn't wait to see her 'boyfriend.'
The stars, who split up three years ago, apparently spent time together in St Tropez on the first night.
'Both of their yachts are huge and moored next to each other, out at sea, where they wouldn't be spotted,' the insider told the weekly magazine.

The following night, the You Da One singer apparently took a boat from her yacht to Chris' and was there from around 3am until 6am.
Rihanna may not have stepped out with Chris in public, but she seemed to be making her feelings pretty clear via Twitter.
When Chris landed in Nice on July 22, the singer tweeted: Touch down baby, help me pick out my outfit.'

A friend told Look magazine that Rihanna was 'jumping up and down' when she realised he was in France, and apparently 'sent three outfits via text so he could pick what she wore.'
After returning from her alleged late-night date with Chris, Rihanna was described as being 'on cloud nine.'
Chris also took a trip to Rihanna's 200k-a-week yacht, where the pair enjoyed champagne together.

The sun came up, they had breakfast on
deck – where they looked happy – and then Chris went back to the yacht,'
the crew member revealed.
According to a friend of Rihanna's, she has 'given up caring what people think' because 'she won't stop loving him.'
However, it is unknown what Chris' model girlfriend Karrueche Tran thinks of the alleged dates.

The 24-year-old was also in France at the time and is said to be stuck in the middle.
Karrueche appeared to have the patience of a saint last week when Chris partied with scantily-clad models at Gotha nightclub in the French Coastal town.
The brunette failed to raise a smile during the night out with Chris, and was also seen shopping alone in Cannes looking miserable.
