We’ve been missing Rihanna, we can’t lie.
She pretty much had (well, now also has) the best Instagram account in the world, kills the concrete runway whenever we see her out and about, and does whatever the hell she wants. For these reasons, we can’t get enough.
This November, we're getting more. Rihanna graces the cover of the month’s ELLE magazine, giving up the goods on what she finds sexy in a man and reminding us that even though she's the queen of social media snark, she’s really, really shy.
The fashion spread, shot by Paola Kudacki, is full of romantic topless moments, what appears to be fashionable party celebration couture and doe-eyed gazes that just capture you, page by page.
And of course, there’s the fashion. Oh, the fashion. Badgalriri, in all of her absence, was still shutting it down during her time off (which was well deserved).
Grab the issue when it's released digitally and on newsstands in select cities on Nov. 11, and nationwide on Nov. 18.
