ICONS IN TRIPLICATE
Having won the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Style Icon Award for 2014, Rihanna has cemented her place in the contemporary fashion vanguard. This week, we got a sneak peek at her W Magazine spread with legendary
models Iman and Naomi Campbell. The images are gorgeous. The three generations – Rihanna (26), Naomi (44) and Iman (59) – were brought together to celebrate fashion brand Balmain’s 28-year-old creative director, Olivier Rousteing. He says the three embody his style. “These women are inspiring to so many different people. Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working
toward.” Continuing her effortless reign in fashion, Rihanna covers the W Magazine September issue in what looks to be inspired by Game of Thrones. The cover calls her the “world’s wildest style icon”. That’s despite the haters who want
to deny her magazine covers because she’s “not a model”.
