Stunning isn’t even the word to describe the new ELLE Magazine July spread that Miss. Rihanna blessed. I love everything about it. That dress she’s rocking on the cover ? I NEED IT. My bday bash is coming up and that’s exactly what I want to wear for it ! ::sigh:: But, check out the interview that she had as well below:
On her new beau: “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.”
On turning her dream of popstardom into reality: “If I were in Barbados still, I would be dreaming about this. I asked for it, and I love it, so why am I complaining? My first day on tour, I remember saying ‘I’m so tired—this is so much.’ Then I thought, What the fuck? You asked for this—you prayed to God to tour like Madonna.”
On designers she admires: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”
On the past year: “A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
*Good Job Rihanna, that’s why you are one of my inspirations* 🙂
Check out Miss. Alba doing her thing, and she did great might I add. Here she is styling for ELLE Magazine Korea. Its for they’re June issue, and I love it. I like how the stylist put all her fits together, especially the black corset and trousers ::sigh:: I really want that outfit for my birthday. Jessica is rocking it all, from Alexander McQueen to Valentino to Marc Jacobs and more. She looks great.
