COVER: RIHANNA BY CAMILLA AKRANS, US HARPER’S BAZAAR AUGUST
Posted on July 8, 2012
A fierce Rihanna graces the subscribers cover for the august issue of US Harper’s Bazaar in a gilded Tom Ford A/W number, accompanied by a wonderful editorial by Camilla Akrans featuring the singer dressed in Paco Rabanne, Alexander Wang, Balmain and more. Check them out along with the unfortunately bland news stand cover.
I love the images but absolutely loathe both the news stand cover and the editorial title page. I’m not sure if her looking exhausted was the look they were going for but all I see when I look at those two images are “impending nervous breakdown.” Aside from these, the subscribers cover of Rhi Rhi in the golden Tom Ford number and the landscape shot in Paco Rabanne are absolutely stunning, and it’s also clearly evident the girl was made for Balmain.
