Watch out world! Rihanna isn’t baring any skin in this issue and the fab chyc looks GORG! Simply beautiful. As we see a completely different side of the 26-year-old for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia‘s July/August 2014 issue. Wearing an elaborate beaded dress and mesh black bow veil on the cover, Rihanna captivates us with her gorgeous eye makeup and ruby red lips (is that MAC RiRi Woo?). Her traditional Maori tattoo also draws our attention to her matching red manicure.
Rihanna’s glamorous nod to Middle Eastern culture continues throughout the accompanying photo spread, with the singer adorning her jet black hair with intricate headscarves. And we love those blunt bangs that hit right at her brow bone.
The country’s strict clothing regulations obviously means Rihanna’s favorite past time of showing flesh (and so much more) has been prohibited.
Still the photogenic Barbadian looks absolutely stunning in the colourful spread, which was shot by New York fashion and portrait photographer Ruven Afanador. Peep more pics from the entire photoshoot below!
