ELLE’s July cover girl on her new look and her new man
She wanted pictures that represented strength and fearlessness but still femininity—a strong woman who can be vulnerable. Every woman is made up of vulnerability and strength; no matter what race you are, no matter what you’ve been through in your life. Every woman has that strength that is undeniable, but we also have really big hearts. And that is Rihanna.. One of the things she respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with her . She respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. She went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and she saw girls who are thicker than herm beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made her so excited.
On her new love: “I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
