It seems like we haven’t done a “Here’s your pretty for today” post in a while. We are ashamed at the shirking of fabugay duties. We’re supposed to be sprinkling bitchery and glitter in relative equal amounts, kittens. We’ve let you down. Here. Have some glitter.
Rihanna is featured in the September issue of Glamour magazine. Let’s listen in.
On hating drama…and perfection: “I hate drama. But at the same time, nothing bothers me more than when life’s perfect. And that’s the sick part. I just love a challenge, whether it’s a relationship, my career, clothing…”
On her attention getting sense of style: “Getting dressed, I want to pick the most bizarre pair of shorts so I can figure out how to make it look right, or work an outfit that will make people go, ‘What the hell is she wearing?’”
On dealing with how messy life can get: “I think honesty is the ultimate liberation in life. People want to shy away from the truth and keep sweeping it under the rug. But after a while, you pick up the rug and there’s just way too much dirt, so you might as well just be up front about it.”
On being a role model for young girls: “I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life….I feel like pop stars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art.”
Okay, enough of that. Feel free to assess her soundbites in the comments section, darlings. We’re here to talk about pictures.
It’s a lot of the typical vamping and grinning you get with non-model celebs in editorials, but there’s a playfulness here that she doesn’t exhibit often enough. She almost always looks amazing in pictures but put the girl in some dramatic designer clothing and she WERQs the shit out of it. This is somewhere between fashion photography and, well, glamour photography. Pretty and fabulous, but not styled too extensively. Fine by us; she’s perfect for this kind of spread.
But we do have one bomb to throw. Is anyone else over the Jessica Rabbit hair?
