Rihanna is on the March cover of Paper Magazine and even though it seems as if she is featured there often she had not been on the cover of Paper since 2007.
The theme of the shoot sort of represents Rihanna’s revolution and her ability to touch everything in the industry and excel at it.
For our spring #BreakTheRules cover, our team took inspiration from her budding acting career and chameleon-like powers of transformation to cast her as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future.
“We thought it would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding,” says Shannon Stokes, who styled our shoot alongside Farren Fucci. “And Farren added the ‘future’ angle to give it a twist, so it became a challenge to envision what a girl who worked there might look like,” he added.
Rihanna took some time this morning to share some of the pictures from the shoot on Instagram:
