Rihanna is the cover girl for the March issue of W Korea. The issue is extra special since it marks the tenth anniversary of the magazine. Rihanna’s gorgeous face graces multiple covers, which is similar to what happened with Vogue Brasil’s anniversary issue. Judging by W Korea’s Instagram account, Rihanna selected the covers herself! The shoot was styled by Sally Lyndley while the photography was done by Dennis Leupold, who happens to be the pop star’s personal photographer but who has done incredible work in his own right. Ursula Stephen was responsible for hair and Ozzy Salvatierra and Mylah Morales did makeup. The cover and editorial was shot in the section of Los Angeles known as K-Town, in a bar called Dansungsa. The dark wooden decor and graffitied walls made for an interesting backdrop. Check out all three covers below.
Rihanna actually wore Christian Dior by Raf Simons throughout the shoot. Here she is in the quilted, zip front dress [Look 39] and the white silk coat [Look 46] from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Her earrings were designed by Karma El-Khalil. She also wore several pieces by Jacquie Aiche and these include an emerald and white diamond crescent necklace, a sapphire and white diamond bar necklace, a graduating cluster necklace made of clusters of emeralds, and a few gemstone rings.
In the above cover the singer is wearing another look from Dior‘s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This time it is Look 50, which comprises a yellow, sleeveless coat and a black shell top. Once again she wore earrings by Karma El-Khalil. Her necklaces include three gold chokers by Jennifer Fisher – a knot choker, a Stop It Right Now choker, and a round reverse choker . Several of her rings and cuffs were designed by Jacquie Aiche and these include a double lapis ring, a large horn cuff embellished with diamonds and emeralds, a one-of-a-kind leland blue cuff and a lapis cuff bracelet.
Finally, Rihanna wears a blue Dior coat and Nicholas Kirkwood Resort 2015 bow mule sandals with a few gold anklets by Jacquie Aiche. Click here to shop the current selection of anklets. Her hair is reminiscent of the ‘do she sported at the American Music Awards a few years ago.
