Remember that sneak preview of Rihanna’s Vogue cover I posted? Well, the real thing (and accompanying Annie Leibovitz-shot photo shoot) has been released, and I am in love. Girlfriend is rocking some serious curves, both on her body and in her hair! A ‘fashion person’ is quoted in the article as saying “There are very few women who can dye their hair Bozo the Clown red and still look so cool, so beautiful,” and Rihanna is definitely one of those women.
The article talks about everything from Rihanna’s transition from island teenager to edgy sex bomb (that “Umbrella” haircut? I’m still obsessed with it.) to the confident, beautiful woman she is today… oh yeah, and the fact that she’s in the upcoming movie adaptation of the game Battleship, which actually sounds awesome. Keep reading for some quotes from the article, as well as hawt shots!
On filming Battleship in Hawaii: “There were all these people, cameras, and huge cranes out in the middle of the ocean. And I got to do some stunts, which was incredible. I loved it – especially diving into the ocean.”
On becoming content with her body: “Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.”
On fashion: “It’s become more about taking a risk. When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me. I think that’s the thrill in fashion.”
