Rihanna covers US Vogue‘s March 2014 issue. The cover and editorial was styled by Tonne Goodman and photographed by David Sims. Author Plum Sykes had the honour of spending a day being styled by Rihanna. The interview and accompanying spread is dedicated to RiRi’s personal style and how she has influenced many of the Spring/Summer 2014 collections including Balmain, Pucci and Alexander Wang. Rihanna can effortlessly go from 90s-influenced streetwear to glamorous and sexy without missing a beat and everyone can learn a thing or two from the style icon.
Tonne pulled some great looks from the Spring collections to show off Rihanna’s chameleon style. The talented editor really played up the embellished trend that will be big in the coming season. As reported earlier, Rihanna is wearing Louis Vuitton on the cover but here’s a look at the rest of the shoot.
Rihanna rocks a futuristic but surprisingly chic white pixie cut in this photo. The fringed white dress and basketweave sandals are from Calvin Klein by Francisco Costa’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. An Ann Demeulemeester necklace is the perfect accent piece.
Next up is look 24 from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci’s Spring 2014 collection. This outfit consists of a midriff-baring draped jersey top, metallic sequined pants and embellished flat sandals.
Rihanna stuns in a pantsuit by Tom Ford. The Spring/Summer 2014 double breasted wool coat, pants and leather belt is evocative of the 80s working woman. Her gold rings are by Vhernier (right hand) and Repossi (left hand).
Here Rih rocks a head-to-toe look from Rodarte‘s much-talked about Spring collection. The collection was a slight departure for the Mulleavy sisters. The Los Angeles-inspired outfit involves a silk plaid shirt, a white bustier, a leopard brocade skirt, a studded belt and matching suspenders and a padlock necklace. This look would not be complete without a snapback cap.
Rihanna channels old Hollywood glamour in a metallic mesh draped dress and high slit black skirt from Versace‘s SS2014 collection. Serpent coil rings by Lynn Ban completed the look.
Alexander Wang is one of Rihanna’s favourite designers and he’s also a personal friend. She simply looks cool in a black jacket and high-waisted shorts with white topstitching from this Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
How gorgeous does Rihanna look in this Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane SS2014 top? The asymmetrical white sequined top embellished with red sequin lips is available for pre-order at Luisa Via Roma for $6,800. Her ring is by Cécile zu Hohenlohe.
Sarah Burton has done a great job maintaining McQueen’s legacy. In the editorial Rihanna shows off her chest tattoo in Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2014. She looks fierce in a croc-embossed leather cropped top and a red laser cut skirt with matching leather detail. The harness, gold hat and other accessories are all from this collection.
Rihanna sparkles in a Maison Martin Margiela SS2014 sequin and crystal-embellished bolero, a metallic bandeau halter top and high-waisted red and black trousers.
Lastly Rihanna wore a Miu Miu embellished green and black silk dress and a Repossi diamond ear cuff (similar available at Barneys for $5,005). Click here to check out the entire Miu Miu Spring collection.
