An [Almost] Bare-Faced Rihanna Covers ELLE Magazine


Leave it to Rihanna (the queen of baring it all) to pose for a major magazine cover with barely a touch of make-up and look flawless.

For ELLE‘s upcoming December issue, Robbie Myers details in the Editor’s Letter that Rih Rih “showed up without makeup on, and, other than some red lipstick for one picture, stayed that way, with nothing more than a dusting of powder on her face, or that there were no highlights or lowlights, just her natural hair, loosely tied back to show those incredible bones.”

Described as a “no holds barred” Q&A, an excerpt from the cover story is featured on the magazine’s website including tidbits like:

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
That’s still a secret.
What’s the sexiest thing a man has ever said to you?
Any man that tells me what to do is sexy!
What’s your mantra?
“Fuck bitches, get money!
The best hangover cure?
Ice, Chinese food! And an upside-down trash can and towels, preferably next to the toilet.
If you were a piece of jewelry, what would it be?
I’d be a choker!
What’s on your Christmas list?
A big, trimmed ****!!
