Rihanna slays this month’s cover of i-D Magazine‘s music issue in anticipation for the release of her R8 album. The pop superstar is rocking braids and a Celine top on the cover. And what’s even more fascinating is the songstress’s illuminating beauty even in minimal makeup.
“She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” says i-D’s Fashion Director Alastair McKimm. “The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”
As Rih gears up for the release of her R8 album, much has been kept under wraps but rumors are swirling about possible collaborations with Mike WiLL Made-It, Ne-Yo, DJ Mustard, Kiesza, Sam Smith and Rae Sremmurd. Her unique acoustic “FourFiveSeconds” record featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney was just a teaser of what is to come from her latest body of work. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what other surprises will come of this album.
