Rihanna is CR Fashion Book’s latest cover star. Fashion Book’s founder Carine Roitfeld said she chose the 28-year-old singer because she “has influenced society’s concept of womanhood.” Hey, no pressure.
“I wanted to show that she is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled,” said Roitfeld. “She is neither, actually. She is a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity, and femininity. Everything done by her and to her has influenced society’s concept of womanhood, for better or worse.”
Fashion Book’s ninth issue hits newsstands Sept. 15.
