Rihanna Rocks Couture, Talks Love & Pain in Harper's Bazaar

Rihanna smolders -- and actually wears clothing! -- on the August cover of Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands July 17. The Barbadian beauty is gorgeous on both the subscription cover (above) and the newsstand cover, where she looks like a modern-day Greek goddess in a white Calvin Klein gown and gold Neil Lane bracelet.

Inside the mag, the sultry Camilla Akrans-photographed spread continues, with Rihanna steaming up the glossy pages in lush gowns by Tom Ford and Calvin Klein, and other fierce looks by Balmain and Ralph Lauren.

The "We Found Love" singer opened up in the cover story about her body, relationships, and the love and pain from her past. She told Bazaar that she has yet to open up again in relationships, after being so badly hurt in the past. "When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I'd feel that pain in my life. I'm afraid of feeling that again."

Rihanna also joked about her body and the parts she wishes were more voluptuous. "I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I'm eating everything in life!" she said. "I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now."

Butts and boyfriends aside, Rihanna continues to look sensational on every cover she graces -- and with style like that, this singer will surly find love soon!
