Rihanna has two covers for CR Fashion Book’s ninth issue, which marks her first time in the magazine. Carine Roitfeld, creator of CR Fashion Book and former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, styled the pop star. Terry Richardson, who worked with Rihanna on previous projects, did the photo shoot.
The legendary Queen Marie Antoinette inspired this issue. According to Roitfeld, Rihanna and the young queen share an apologetic attitude and both have inspired society in many ways.
The magazine is crafted around key elements of her [Marie Antoinette’s] life—her exuberant sense of fashion, her elaborate hairdos, her intense sexuality—almost like a modern biography through fashion imagery. And on the cover is Rihanna, who shares with Marie Antoinette an air of royalty that I, and the world it seems, find intoxicating.
The issue costs $30 and it hits newsstands on September 15th. Place an order here so you don’t miss out on this one. I’ll post the fashion credits for the shoot when we receive all the photos. So look out for that post!
