Rihanna is the cover girl for the newest issue of Lui, a French men’s magazine. She was styled by her longtime stylist and friend Mel Ottenberg and the photos were shot by Mario Sorrenti, who has worked with the pop star on numerous occasions including shoots for GQ, V magazine and Rihanna for River Island. Rihanna was inspired by a vintage Lui magazine cover from 1972 (click here to check it out) and wanted to recreate the photo in her own fresh way. I usually don’t post men’s magazines since there’s never much fashion involved but I do love this shoot so here we go. (Please note that the following photos contain nudity.)
On the cover Rihanna wears a denim bucket hat by Kenzo, a delicate gold body chain by Jennifer Fisher as well as a diamond finger bracelet by Jacquie Aiche and earrings by Neil Lane that are worn throughout the shoot. You can also spot the Christian Dior logo rings that she posted on Instagram several weeks ago.
In the sexy editorial, Rihanna wears a cropped tank top by Palace Costume with rings and earrings by Neil Lane, a diamond and sapphire deco ring by Sabine G and other rings by Cartier.
