Rihanna is on the cover of the August 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The cover and editorial spread were shot by Camilla Åkrans (who also shot Rih’s LOUD album cover and booklet) and styled by Mel Ottenberg with make-up by Mylah Morales. The theme of the photoshoot was all white but they threw in plenty of gold to keep it interesting. On the cover Rihanna wears a white gown by Calvin Klein that is stunning in it’s simplicity. Her gold bracelet is from Neil Lane Jewelry.
