Bad Girl Riri is back in VMA action!

Rihanna will officially be performing live at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, which will take place Sunday, Aug. 28 at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City at 9 p. m. ET/PT. Also performing this year is Britney Spears with G-Eazy, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, Ty Dolla $ign, Drake, Future, The Chainsmokers and Halsey.

 

But that's not all! The "Umbrella" singer from Barbados will be awarded with the award show's highest honor, the "Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award," for her decade-long impact on music, pop culture, style, film and philanthropy.

With this honor, Rihanna joins the prestigious list of past Vanguard recipients including, of course, The King Of Pop, Madonna, Peter Gabriel, Guns N' Roses, Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé and Kanye West.

But we know the VMAs are just as much about fashion as they are music. We can't wait to see what the sexy singer wears to pick up her award Sunday night and, if history is any indication, it won't be much. Gravitating to edgy designers such as Adam Selman, Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Rihanna is never afraid to show some skin, or should we say, lots of skin on the red carpet.

In honor of her highly-anticipated appearance, we are revisiting nine of her most naked looks ever! Launch the slide show above and tell us which scandalous red carpet look is your fav.
