Rihanna Reveals Her Secret to Perfect Skin
posted on

Via ELLE.com: Before meeting Rihanna, I procure the following: a rare tube of RiRi Woo—the megastar’s 2013 fire-engine red lipstick for M.A.C—and a pair of six-inch python pumps from ELLE’s fashion closet. My effort pays off: “Those shoes are killing it,” she says, eyeing my borrowed gear. “They’re sick. I keep looking at them.”

From the fall runways to Twitter feeds worldwide, Rihanna’s influence is impossible to ignore, and her fans now have access to that magnetism via her frosty new M.A.C Viva Glam collection. “It’s for rock stars,” she says. “People who like to have fun.”

You’ve topped every “world’s sexiest woman” list. Who do you think should get the title?
Penélope Cruz is the shit. If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman's Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic. I’m going to do that bob again. Those bangs.

Who is the sexiest man?
Vince Vaughn. He’s amazing. Fantastic.

Do you have any words to live by?
“Avoid obviousness.” That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s what makes you create something, that’s the excitement, that’s the thrill.

What’s the best part about working with Viva Glam?
The fact that every penny spent goes to the M.A.C AIDS fund: All of it helps save the lives of people who are affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Rihanna Effect: Fashion’s Most Exciting Muse, On Her Third Vogue Cover
posted on

The latest Vogue issue with Rihanna on the cover is out now! Check out below photoshoot outtakes and read the interview from vogue.com!

With her power pipes and full-on attitude, Rihanna has become fashion’s most exciting new muse. So how does it feel to have her dress you for a day? Plum Sykes finds out.

On a wintry December afternoon the Alexander Wang SoHo store is temporarily closed, no customers allowed. A bodyguard is scoping the place out like a character from Homeland. He looks suspiciously from Wang, dressed in droopy black jersey, who is sitting next to me on a black leather couch scattered with black mink cushions, to the lush fox-fur hammock hanging in the center of the store, and back again. His eyes narrow as he scrutinizes the twelve-foot-high black teddy bear in the window for hazards. “I need to know where the nearest hospital is,” he whispers. A convenient hospital is quickly located.

Rihanna: ELLE Canada interview
posted on

There’s a brand new Rihanna interview featured in ELLE Canada‘s latest issue. Read below:

The Barbados beach is lit like a Monet. The sun is setting hazily behind Rihanna as she shakes sand out of her pearl-embellished sandals and concentrates on the stepping moves a young girl is demonstrating. Laughing, Rihanna claps her hands and tries to keep up with the other members of dance4life, a program that educates local kids about HIV and AIDS through dance. Maybe she’s having a great time, or maybe she’s just trying to put the teen, whose voice is quivering with nerves, at ease.

The 25-year-old of Internet-crushing fame surprised these kids (who I feared might black out when their idol strolled over to greet them) as part of her work as M.A.C’s Viva Glam spokesperson for 2014. The annual initiative, which started 20 years ago with a bold campaign featuring RuPaul, aims to raise $41 million for AIDS research this year alone by donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the signature lip colour.

Rihanna seems at home here on the beach, even with tourists circling and holding their phones out like weapons. Then again, she is home. It’s her grandfather’s birthday this weekend, and she managed to squeeze in an early stop at Chefette, the popular Bajan fast-food chain, for a spicy roti. The sun has set by the time we sit down upstairs on the balcony of a suite at the posh Sandy Lane resort on the western coast of the island, but Robyn Rihanna Fenty is still glowing.

“I didn’t know that I would have to learn a dance today,” she says, cracking up. “I’m so serious! I thought I was just going to watch. I would never have worn this skirt or this long-sleeved black jacket!” She smooths her Lanvin pencil skirt and oversized top, making her gold-and-pearl bangles jingle. “But it was fun,” she adds. “It was harder than I thought it would be.”
