Rihanna for CR Fashion Book

Rihanna transforms into a modern-day Marie Antoinette in the latest issue of CR Fashion Book.

Founder Carine Roitfeld teamed up with famed photographer Terry Richardson for the concept-driven shoot, calling thhe pop star "a prototype for contemporary fame, body, beauty, celebrity, and femininity".

"I wanted to show that [Marie Antoinette] is not just a villain to be despised or a muse to be channeled," she explained. "[Rihanna] 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."

For the spread, Rihanna rocks a pink top by Dilara Findikoglu and askirt from Le Vestiaire, and poses seductively. In another shot, she holds a baby while rocking a sheer Rosamosario dress and underwear from Fleur of England.
