Another day, another cover murdered by Rihanna. The pop star is covering the December 2014 issue of ELLE Magazine. The spread was shot by photographer Paola Kudacki, styled by Lori Goldstein, hair Yusef Williams, make-up Tom Pecheux.
RiRi’s diverse spread shows an array of looks — classic, raunchy, girl-next-door, etc. The full Rihanna feature can be found in ELLE’s December issue, available digitally and on newsstands starting November 11, and nationwide on November 18.
In the meantime, peep a few excerpts.
