Ever since the revival of her Instagram, Rihanna has been slaying us all left and right with her photoshoots and covers—this is only the latest. The 26-Year old Barbadian beauty has proven that we are not worthy, once again, with her latest shoot for i-D Magazine‘s Music Issue cover.
The cover features a close-up shot of Rih rocking chunking retro 90s box braids, large hoop earrings and sultry make up. Alastair McKimm, i-D Magazine’s fashion director, had nothing but praise for Rihanna after working with her and has confirmed that she is indeed a true music icon. He states:
“The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”
Rihanna also graces the pages of the Magazine itself with another beautiful shot rocking bantu knots. Natural hair is definitely winning.
After the release of her latest track “FourFiveSeconds, we can be expecting new music from Rih soon and more shoots that make us want to cry.
