For their April issue, on newsstands now, Elle UK has nabbed Barbadian beauty Rihanna to grace their cover and give us some insight into her much talked about private life.
For the dual covers RiRi wore black River Island skirts; one with a Louis Vuitton top featuring their ever popular chequered print and the other with a Prada stole over a Louis Vuitton striped bra. In the inside editorial made up of simple studio images, Rihanna dons monochromatic looks comprised of garments from the likes of Maison Martin Margiela, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy and more.
In the accompanying article RiRi discusses her gun tattoo, Instagram, her new collection with River Island and her now infamous relationship with boyfriend Chris Brown:
On why she got her gun tattoo and telling the truth:
“Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No. That’s when I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim. That’s why I’m posting pictures of myself smoking pot, to tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra s*** by being dishonest?”
On loving posting pictures of herself and her life on Instagram:
“Well I instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse – how crazy, I know! – or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris.”
On her mum disapproving of her naked pictures on Instagram:
“I’m not afraid of any person in this world but her. I’m terrified of her! She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures Melissa [her best friend] put up on Instagram – a sneak-peek from a photo book she’s making about me. My mom, she went crazy on me. I was like embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of my class in school! She said, ‘This was like a private moment and you’re just parading this around.” She humbled the f*** out of me.”
On her love of high street fashion and her new collection for River Island:
“High-street shops pay more attention to the kids on the street than to the runways, so in a way I like to mix both. I love a high-end bag or jacket with a simple dress. I just thought, I’m going to make something for everybody – every personality, every body type.”
On wanting a great friendship with Chris Brown above all else:
“…right now that’s just what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that.”
On Chris Brown being the person she loves:
“Stay [new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”
For a behind the scenes look at Rihanna’s cover shoot make sure to check out the video below:
Celebrity Style: A few short days ago the infamous Victoria’s Secret Runway Show was held at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City. Rihanna was one of the three performers of the night and looked absolutely stunning an even managed to somewhat outshine the dozens of bombshell models that strutted down the runway.
For her performance of her hit track “Diamonds” from her new album, Unapologetic, she wore a black Vivienne Westwood corset and long skirt that featured a daring hip high slit that revealed her garter stockings. She accessorized her look with vintage Chanel sunglasses, a vintage Chanel pearl choker, one Ellagem pearl earring, Gucci botties and long black lace gloves by Cornelia James.

“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.”
“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 weight loss:
“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.”

Let us all take a moment to appreciate how ridiculous this is. Bravo Look magazine, but seriously would it not have ben easier to just use the image of Rihanna at the ‘Battleship’ premiere?
I must say I am actually a fan of Rihanna’s Stella McCartney pre-fall 2012 pajama style lace and satin set. The statement shades and strappy sandals really finish off the look well.
How is everyone feeling about the blonde hair?
