Rihanna as Royalty

Rihanna on the cover of the new CR issue

Rihanna was transformed into an actual royalty for the cover of  CR Fashion Book’s Issue 9. Even though the singer will always be royalty in our eyes, the notorious Bad Gal put her twist on the famous French Queen by smoking a blunt and grabbing her boob in the new editorial.


The photographs were taken by Terry Richardson and Styled by Carine Roitfeld.

Roitfeld commented that she took the inspiration from Marie Antoinette and tat the entire CR 9 issue is dedicated to her.  “I wanted to show that she is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled. She is neither, actually. She is a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity, and femininity. Everything done by her and to her has influenced society’s concept of womanhood, for better or worse,”


So the Queen of Bad Gals was chosen to reprise Marie Antoinette. And according to us they couldn’t find a better model 🙂

The full issue of CR 9 hits newsstands September 15th.
