There is no naked dress in Rihanna's newest cover shoot with Harper's Bazaar Arabia, but we promise you won't be disappointed with the stunning spread. Even completely covered up—and we mean literally draped from tress-to-toe—the star looks gorgeous. As if we had any doubts!
The "Diamonds" singer—who shared the pics on her Twitter account this morning—poses in various headpieces including a bow-adorned mesh veil, hooded Versace gown and an embellished headscarf. The images were shot by Ruven Afanador, who Rihanna crowned as her "new fave photographer." One look at this spread and we can see why.
The 26-year-old's striking makeup consists of a dramatic cat eye and red lip, which was likely created with her own Mac lipstick Rhi Rhi Woo.
But the real jaw-droppers are two ensembles in which even the star's face is hidden. The first shows the star clad in a gray gown with cape. Her eyes peep out from behind a gold facemask.
Topping that, the Grammy winner works it in a glittery Catwomen-esque hooded bodysuit with matching headmask.
The issue's cover story is "The New Modesty: How To Cover Up In Style," which is a little bit ironic considering Rih is usually the queen of undress. But perhaps that's the point. Rihanna is a fan of extremes and this proves she has mastered both nearly naked and completely covered.
