Even when Rihanna tries to lay low, she always seems to be the center of attention. The Bajan beauty has been taking it relatively easy in 2015 as the world awaits her 8th upcoming studio album. In celebration of her latest release with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, Rih Rih slays as the cover star of British Magazine i-D’s Music Issue. Rihanna continuously showcases her fashion chameleon side, this time rocking box braids (which look amazing on her), with less glamorous makeup and a more androgynous feel. Nonetheless, Rihanna slays. No one is on top of her both musically and fashion-wise. Wearing a Céline top, Rihanna stares into the camera for photographer Paolo Roversi in Paris.
When i-D’s Fashion Director, Alastair McKimm, was asked about what it was like to work with the Grammy-winning artist, he didn’t hold back:
“She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”
Rumor has it that her next album has features from Mike WiLL Made-It, Ne-Yo, DJ Mustard and Rae Sremmurd, and she has seen leaving the studio with Drake, Kanye and more. Whenever the album actually does come out, it’s safe to say it will be a classic. Stay tuned!
