What a stunner! Shot by photographer Greg Kadel and styled by Anya Ziourova, Barbadian superstar Rihanna takes centrestage on the November 2017 cover of Vogue Arabia.

Paired with a snakeskin print Gucci jacket is a matching headpiece, and her flawless makeup comprises metallic teal eyeshadow and a nude frosted lip.

The 29-year-old singer’s photoshoot pays homage to legendary Egyptian queen Nefertiti, and even before the cover was released, Vogue Arabia tweeted a little teaser with the caption, “Thousands of years apart, two iconic women.”

Although the iconic fashion publication had previously come under fire for featuring internationally-recognised models such as Gigi Hadid instead of Arab or Middle Eastern women wholly and it’s happening once again, she still looks bangin’.

Way to go, RiRi!
