The original Reb'l Fleur fragrance ad shows the 23-year-old sniffing a single flower and her matador red locks in loose curls, while wearing a pink satin robe that exposes a bit of cleavage and her torso. But a snapshot of the ad in a Middle Eastern newspaper, reveals a much more modest Rihanna with her midriff concealed, possibly thanks to a few clicks in Photoshop.
It has been reported that the cover-up was done to attract Kuwaiti women in the predominately Muslim state.
While Rihanna and Parlux Fragrances, the company that produces Reb'l Fleur, have yet to make a statement on the ad censorship, we have a feeling this won't deter sales of the songstress' scent.
