Who said brown girls can’t wear blue eyeshadow? Well, Rihanna puts them all to shame in her new cover for V Magazine‘s Summer 2015 issue. Shot by Steven Klein, the V95 issue features a topless Rihanna rocking a retro platinum blonde wig by hairstylist Yusef and a vibrant blue eyeshadow with a soft pastel lip by Yadim for Maybelline. Her cover wardrobe? The the teeniest Versace bikini bottoms as styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.
Inside the pages, Riri proves why she is the go-to musical diva for fashion spreads. I firmly believe you could dress her in a burlap potato sack today and it would be sold out in every Walmart across America tomorrow. Thankfully, stylist de Dudzeele has draped her in anything but drab attire. Rihanna instead dons all sorts of bold 80’s throwback pieces, including neon Alexandre Vauthier furs and Juicy Couture track suits, and manages to serve hot, chic and effortless – all at the same time.
