Rihanna Transforms Into Tribal Goddess For ‘W’ Magazine

Superstar Rihanna unleashed her wild side as the W magazine’s September 2014 cover girl!

The 26-year-old singer was transformed into a tribal goddess for a photo shoot, which she appropriately dubbed as the “Eskimo Horror Cover Story.” In the stunning photos taken by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, RiRi rocked a Michael Kors fur coat and an Alexander McQueen hooded cape as she posed alongside wolves. The nature-set up further cemented her status as music’s top fashionista with her ability to adapt for any occasion.

“The face, the body, the confidence – the magnetism that she has is just ridiculous. That can’t be learned,” said makeup artist Kabuki. “She doesn’t need crazy makeup to be interesting, but if you do something strong on her… She’s going to own it.”

The cover image features the pop diva with a bold nose piercing on her septum and bulky jewelry around her ears and neck.

After sharing her animalistic shots from the W  shoot on her Twitter, Rihanna also shared photos from her spread with famed models Naomi Campbell and Iman.
