The Rihanna photos coincide with the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death on May 30.

Rihanna just completed her music video shoot for her single "Pour It Up." According to the Huffington Post, the photo was uploaded by the singer's friend Melissa Frode and show Rihanna from the back, wearing a revealing white swimsuit, blonde wig, and sky-high, lace-up white heels.

Forde captioned: "#isthisratchetenough?? #PouritupVideoshoot @badgalriri."

Rihanna also posted a photo of her with the same wig, but this time wearing a silky black robe and large dark sunglasses while she lounges on a couch smoking a cigarette, channeling the iconic movie star.

The 25-year-old's style choice for her music video corresponds with the approaching anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death 50 years ago.

Meanwhile, Fox News reports that an upcoming Marilyn Monroe exhibition in Prague had photographs of the actress stolen, along with a few mannequins and display cases.

There is no further information as to who is behind the theft or if the exhibit will be delayed.
