Rihanna Becomes A Warrior Queen in Dark Future for ‘W’ Magazine

image

After slaying another galaxy with “Sledgehammer,” Rihanna could quite possibly rule the world in a not so distant future.

The pop mega-star shows us what that would potentially look like in her latest W Magazine cover spread. RiRi rules as a post-apocalyptic queen in the special collector’s issue, which was inspired by Imperator Furiosa, a character played by Charlize Theron in the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road.

Styled by Edward Enninful and photographed by Steven Klein, the shoot features various designers working together to make the Bad Gal “the ruling warrior queen in a dark, dystopian future.” Creative director Enninful said the ANTI chart-topper was treated like royalty for this project. “Rihanna is playing the Queen,” he said. “So everything has to be custom made specifically for her.”

The “Work” singer gives a devastatingly seductive glare on the September 2016 cover, which is a neck-up portrait shot featuring gems and diamonds as both makeup and jewelry. In this pic, she also dons a Cartier tiara, earrings, and necklace.

RiRi strikes a series of badass poses (holding a rabid dog on a chain, backed by smoke and fire), while clad in different designer pieces, including works by Maison Margiela, Gareth Pugh, Manolo Blahnik, Prada, and Dior.

Rihanna Covers British ‘Vogue,’ Shows Off New Collaboration with Manolo Blahnik

Rihanna-British-Vogue

Rihanna is on her second British Vogue cover, which showcases her new collaboration with famous footwear designer Manolo Blahnik. The 28-year-old fashion icon sports stunning pieces from the denim-driven collection including a pair of thigh-high crystal-embellished boots, which she doesn’t recommend wearing on a date.

“Guuurrrl! Those boots are dangerous!” RiRi tells the magazine. “If you’re trying to get back home to your bed, don’t wear them boots! You will get kidnapped in those boots, those boots are trouble.”

The singer, who also dons a white diamond-studded cowboy hat on the cover, credits her mother for inspiring her style. “Oh my goodness, my mother — she is a woman’s woman,” she says. “I was obsessed with everything she did then, everything she wore, her scent, her shoes and her scarves… That was the glamour I wanted to be part of.”

According to WWD, Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik will debut May 5. The limited-edition capsule collection, inspired by Rihanna’s hand tattoos, includes a selection of sandals, pumps, and boots. Prices range from $767 to $3,483.

For those who can’t afford the pricey footwear, the cover girl also recently launched a more affordable workout sneaker for PUMA called “The Trainer.”
