Rihanna Stuns with Naomi Campbell & Iman in Balmain | Goes Wild for W Magazine Cover



Rihanna, Iman and Naomi Campbell in Balmain for W Magazine - BellaNaija - August2014003

Hmmm. We definitely think Riri has some serious professional model potential.

Posing for W Magazine, Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman look absolutely flawless and fabulous in Balmain for W Magazine.

Rihanna has been giving us hot editorials recently. She made us green with envy with her MAC Viva Glam campaign images, and had us wishing we were in her shoes for her Rogue Man ad. Now she is showing us that she’s got what it takes to hang with the pros!

That’s not all Riri is dishing!

For their latest issue, Rihanna takes us to the wild side for her cover and editorial with W Magazine. On the cover Rihanna looks tribal with a blue-painted forehead; but it’s the inside shots that really cry wolf.

Aptly titled “The World’s Wildest Style Icon”, check out some photos.

    Rihanna does not blend well in the photos…its pretty obvious she is not a model unlike Iman and Naomi who look good.

    the shoot is everything…and centre-parting proves to be a universal face beautifier

    I always argued that Rihanna is” beautiful” but I can see the difference between the classic beauty of the models and Rihanna’s type of “hotness”.

    i think rihanna looks more like a model compared to the other two. she has a masculine face and photographs well. if music fails, she could model, better for her, since she likes to be naked. nice cover.

      Thanks for naming what it is about her that I love. She’s masculine, not very feminized, just is.

    Riri is good looking in her own way, but she cannot compare to Naomi Campbell and Iman. Period. My eyes went straight to Naomi in every picture. She is a goddess and the epitome of beauty and everything stunning. I’m not gay, but if I were, Naomi would be in serious trouble. Riri is trying, but a supermodel is always a supermodel and Riri is just not one.

      your eyes go to naomi because of the way she is placed in all the pictures she is either in the center or separated from the other two, but its no denying that all three are supermodel material…iman at 59 i mean c’mon! and rihanna is just flawless and fits right in.

      Thank you blue @ao there is no comparison between Rihanna, Naomi and Iman. They all have their unique features.

    Naomi is throwing shade and slaying at the same time! Iman = Queen. Riri holds her own though. Olivier Rousteing has really intensified the bad gal glamour of what Christophe Decarnin began…

    I don’t know how this Rihanna girl does it. She’s this canvas, this perfect canvas. her face is nothing major but it’s eternally blankly young with not a care in the world. Even when she’s bad she’s a spectacle.

    Ageless beauty, these women are. Riri is “dancing with wolves”.
