Rihanna-Bazaar-Arabia-Ruven-Afanador-01 - Copy

Rihanna the industry’s wild child  lands the cover story of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia‘s July 2014 edition, in what seems to be her most fashionable cover yet.  The styling of the photo spread plays around the idea of Middle Eastern clothing with a modern interpretation. In many images including the cover Rihanna’s face is covered, as the Muslim tradition requires.

Can Rihanna maintain this theme of Modesty? You be the Judge. We think the looks are glamorous and fit her perfectly with traditional elements nothing like the shocking outfit she wore to the Fashion Designers of America Awards. A different Rihanna, and we like it!

She was photographed by Ruven Afanador. In charge of styling for Rihanna Of Arabia was Ise White, with hair by Yusef Williams and makeup by Lora Arellano.
