The 26-year-old star holds her own against Iman and Naomi Campbell in W magazine

Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman grace the pages of W magazine’s September issue, but we can’t take our eyes off the fashionable pop princess.


RIHANNA RECEIVES CFDA'S 2014 FASHION ICON AWARD [VIDEO]


W
magazine celebrated three generations of iconic Black beauty and fashion with the triple threat, as pictures of the fabulous shoot were released earlier this week. The fashion-focused September issue features cover girl RiRi drenched in tropical makeup, showing off her stunning green eyes and gorgeous brown skin. This time around, more is left to the imagination as she’s following up from her nude spread in Lui magazine back in April.


The generational spread features the supermodels and pop star donned in Balmain. Structured yet feminine pieces adorn their tall, statuesque figures and show off the trio’s best assets: their fierce legs. These ladies look nothing short of epitomized Black beauty as they were styled by Mr. Balmain himself, creative director Olivier Rousteing (who is seen in a shot alongside the ladies of the shoot).


IS RIHANNA PLANNING A FASHION AND BEAUTY TAKEOVER?


Inside of the most awaited issue of the year lays out a tribal-influenced spread of Rihanna serving "smize" for days, reminding us why we just can’t get enough of her.


What are your thoughts on spread? Let us know if the comments section below!
