NOTES: Pop Princess proves looking hot is the best revenge!
As her fourth album, Rated R, receives accolades and she gets ready to kick off her international tour, Rihanna is only getting hotter. Here, she sizzles in Gucci’s cotton dress with sexy cut-outs on the February 2010 cover of W Magazine, as captured by Craig McDean and styled by Lori Goldstein. Less than a year ago Rihanna was virtually in hiding. But now, with a hit record and a new sense of bravery, she’s ready to show the world who she really is.
Here are some highlights from her interview.
On the best part of her day: “When I’m with my glam team getting my hair and makeup done—we talk so much s—!”
On her fashion sense: “My stylist Mariel Haenn and I always try to do something sexy but never too girly—we always try to put a little toughness in there.”
On never once wishing herself back in Barbados, living a quiet life: “Oh no, I never fantasize about that. Because if I were back there, I know I’d be fantasizing about all this.”
