Don’t stop the music
Finally, RiRi gives us what we’ve been waiting for: a beauty brand
Hard to believe, but it’s been 12 years since original bad girl Rihanna burst onto our radios and into our lives. She is one of the greats of our time, and not just for her music, which has always been infectious and provocative. For her style, her voice and her sheer power. Rihanna is the human embodiment of not giving a single F and that spirit and tenacity shine through in everything she does, whether that’s chart-topping music, cooler-than-cool collaborations or now, an internet-breaking beauty line.
In this month’s exclusive cover story we get an insight into exactly how Rihanna’s mind works, courtesy of 20 of her best friends and fans. (In summary: like nothing you could ever imagine.) She tells us about the inspiration behind her music, and what she wanted from her new colour cosmetics line Fenty Beauty. As you might expect, her tastes are eclectic and her influences broad. Which goes some way to explaining why she can endorse both Puma sneakers and Chopard diamonds, and rock everything from Giambattista Valli couture, to a camel suit, to a string bikini. Volume, colour and the avant-garde present no problem for RiRi. Through her style, humour and boundary-breaking career, she’s teaching all of us to be fearless.
