Can we all scream the word SLAY across the blogosphere?!
Rihanna is the latest celebrity to cover Harper’s Bazaar US for their August 2012 publication. Rocking a simple yet chic Calvin Klein dress and a gorge I-must-have-now Neil Lane bracelet.
The entire editorial, shot by Camilla Akrans, is absolutely ah-mazing. Filled with looks by Tom Ford, Balmain, Alexander Wang, Paco Rabanne and Ralph Lauren, Rihanna proves once again she’s a trendsetter. I so adore her.
In her interview with Harper’s Bazaar (which hit newsstands July 17), she chats about her body, being afraid to fall in love, and recent collaboration with her ex Chris Brown.
On her body: “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
On falling in love: “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
On her collaboration with Chris Brown: “The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it’. I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”
On being rebellious: “[I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just—I don’t let people in.”
In other Ri-Ri news, the pop star is producing and will co-host Styled to Rock, a fashion reality television show that will air on Britain’s Sky Living. 12 unknown fashion designer contestants, which were all hand-selected by Rihanna herself, will be mentored by her and designer Henry Holland, Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts, and Rihanna’s stylist Lysa Cooper.
The show will last 10 weeks and the designers will be challenged to design looks for the pop star — from stage, red carpet, and photo shoots. Cute twist on Project Runway, aye? Check out the promo video ..
