2011 will be forever known as the year that Rihanna officially shunned pants. We’ve already brought you a pantsless Rihanna retrospective, but to be honest we still had way too many super hot pants-free pix stocked up. And these are just from this year alone! And because the holidays are a time for giving, we’ve decided to share Riri’s 30 hottest pants-free looks of 2011!
It’s been an amazing year for Rihanna, and it’s even more incredible to think of all the stuff she did without bothering to cover up. We all have nightmares about being pantsless in public, but Rihanna does more without wearing pants than most people do in their entire lives. Allow us to demonstrate with our handy timeline…
Rihanna’s Year Without Pants
Rihanna set the tone for the coming year with an interview for British GQ Magazine, in which the singer addresses her haters. “People think I’m overly sexy,” she said. “It bothers them for some reason. Girls don’t like to see other girls dressed sexy.”
Rihanna got her year-long pants-off dance-off started right with a super sexy performance at the Grammy Awards in L.A.
She then took her show across the pond to merry ol’ England a few days later where she sang at the 2011 BRIT Awards, and took home the award for Best International Female Star.
As winter turned to spring, Rihanna was tapped to be the “voice” of Nivea skin care and feature in the advertisement for their 100th birthday.
In June, Rihanna released the video for her song, “Man Down.” The controversial short film drew fire for depicting extremely disturbing scenes of drug taking, violence and homicide.
It was also criticized for not containing enough scenes of Rihanna pantless.
As the summer continued to heat up, a bikini clad Rihanna appeared as the guest of honor at the Kadooment Festival in her native Barbados. The results made her a finalist for the 2011 FABLife Bikini Awards.
As kids of all ages were heading back to school, Rihanna appeared in print ads for Emporio Armani. The spots consist of Rihanna lounging around a vintage car looking very buffed and waxed. (err, we’re talking about the car).
As the leaves started to fall, the video for
Requiem For A Dream: The Musical “We Found Love” dropped.
Responding to critics of her last video, this time she appeared in many scenes without pants.
This October Rihanna was also named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire.
Rihanna tried to wear pants for her appearance on the U.K. edition of The X Factor this November. Really, she did!
On December 22nd, Rihanna performed her final concert date on the Loud Tour.
