No stranger to magazine photo spreads, Rihanna is back in a new W magazine editorial shot by Mert & Marcus. The spread shows Rihanna in an unusual setting, with tribal surroundings and stripes of war paint across her face. Maybe Rihanna is making a surprise cameo in that new Night at the Museum movie?
The tribal theme is in keeping with W’s story on Rihanna, titled “The World’s Wildest Style Icon.” Jewels, furs, and even some actual wolves all add to the wildness theme, which extends to the cover of the magazine’s latest issue.
To check out the Rihanna editorial by Mert & Marcus in the September issue of W, head to wherever you buy your magazines now, because the issue is currently available in stores. You can also get a good look at the photo spread in the gallery at the top of the page, thanks to Highsnobiety here.
