Rihanna has graced the cover of GARAGE Magazine’s Sept. issue, entitled “The Human Future,” revealed online Tuesday (Sept. 4). The vintage-inspired shoot features the “Love on the Brain” singer in an array of couture outfits with throwback pieces, including a 1960’s French rose bolero top and a yellow American vintage ballroom skirt. Rihanna’s edge is integrated into the looks with a nearly black lipstick from her line of FENTY cosmetics, and extra long golden bejeweled nails.
The shoot, styled by Carlos Nazario, was designed to push the singer to explore fresh and innovative looks. “I think her comfort zone is to push it, right? I don’t think she feels comfortable when she feels like she’s worn it before,” Nazario told the magazine. “I think when she gets excited, and when she often feels the most beautiful and the most powerful, is when she’s wearing something that kinda feels unexpected.”
The shoot was photographed by Deana Lawson, who also shot the cover for Blood Orange‘s Freetown Sound. “The Human Future” marks Lawson’s first cover and fashion editorial shoot to date.
