Rihanna and her braids rock the front cover of i-D magazine.
Rihanna and her braids rock i-D magazine to celebrate her upcoming 8th album.
The look showcases Rihanna like we haven’t quite seen her before — trading in her signature bold red lip and shiny hair for dark lipliner and scattered braids.
Last week, Rihanna premiered her first single, ‘FourFiveSeconds,’ an acoustic ballad with Kanye West and Paul McCartney.
For i-D’s cover shoot, Rihanna traveled to Paris and shot with photographer Paolo Roversi. Alastair McKimm, the British magazine’s Fashion Director, was amazed by Rihanna’s poise and fearlessness.
“She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” she said. “The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”
