And the covers keep rolling in! Rihanna dominated magazine covers in 2014 and just when you thought she was done she pops up on another one. This time her beautiful face is splashed across the March 2015 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The shoot was done last year by photographer and certified diver Norman Jean Roy who seems to have captured some beautiful underwater shots for the spread. Rih was styled by Mel Ottenberg who also did her last Harper’s Bazaar US cover and editorial. Two other members of her glam squad also worked on this shoot – Ursula Stephen did her hair and Mylah Morales was responsible for makeup.
On the cover Rihanna is wearing a Balmain jumpsuit from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Take a better look at it below.
The inside cover of the issue gives us a perfect shot of Rihanna in the jumpsuit, which has thin straps and a cutout on each side. She actually wore a similar piece from their Resort 2015 collection last year. However, Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing custom-made this gold version of the jumpsuit just for this particular photo shoot. Her shoes are Giuseppe Zanotti ankle-strap sandals with black patent straps, black 4″ heels and a mirrored gold platform from the Spring 2014 collection.
Among her accessories are an emerald and white diamond crescent necklace, a gemstone body chain and rings by Jacquie Aiche. She also wears rings by Cartier and Harry Winston. Her earrings and cuff bracelets are by Van Cleef & Arpels. These are the brand’s iconic Manchette cuffs, which are made of 18k gold. They are iconic because they were among Jackie O’s favourite pieces of jewellery and are better known as the Jackie O cuffs. In fact Jackie O’s personal cuffs sold at auction in 2011 for more than $128,000. Check them out in the gallery below.
Here’s some behind the scenes video that the star shared last night. She literally swam with sharks.
