Super stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele has shot many an explosive cover for V Magazine, Nicole Kidman, Winona Ryder, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez among them. She always manages to strike a mesmerizing balance between the glamorous and the perverse, the highest of high fashion and the allure of urban cool. Naturally, her sizzling V95 cover shoot with the one and only Rihanna is no exception. Working with photographer Steven Klein for the first time in almost two decades (“We are both strong and love what we do, so we have true perfection,” she says), de Dudzeele dresses RiRi in everything from electric Alexandre Vauthier furs to Juicy Couture track suits to the teeniest Versace bikini bottoms. So what’s her secret to aesthetic success? Living in the moment and going with her gut. Here, de Dudzeele discusses working with Rih, the importance of fun, and why she decided to “show the ass.”
Can you tell us about the concept behind the V cover shoot with Rihanna?
CCD I tried to do something a little ’80s. But I always try to make the person in front of me look the most divine, glamorous, and beautiful. I don’t work for me—I work for the person in front of me. No matter who it is, I try to make them look the best, her best. This is always my goal.
In case you missed it, Rihanna covers the V Magazine Summer issue and in the mag she’s revealing… some details about her brand new album! Pre-order the issue here.
“The Home record was a soundtrack I created especially for the film,” she says. “My eight studio album was a place for me to completely express myself creatively with no bounderies and try anything that I wanted.” It’s clear that fans are fiending for the album material for that very reason. When she cryptically instagrammed a Paolo Roversi-lensed record sleeve with caption “#March26,” many of her fans stayed up the entire night before, speculating on Twitter about when her new song, “Bitch Better Have My Money”, would hit.
The thing that made me fall in love with [‘FourFiveSeconds’] is the juxtaposition of the music and the lyrics,” she told V. “When you read the lyrics it’s a completely different song than what you are hearing. The music is easygoing, but the lyrical content is very loud and in your face. In performing this, the key was to make sure the aggression wasn’t lost.
