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”.
