Rihanna, who returned to Instagram on November 2 after a six month hiatus, used the social platform to preview the December cover of ELLE, writing: “My @elleusa COVER!! On stands in select cities Nov. 11 & US nationwide Nov. 18. Preview the issue at Elle.com.”
Rihanna In ‘ELLE’ Magazine — December 2014 Cover Beauty
Rihanna’s hair was styled by her mane man Yusef. Fans are loving the cover with comments on Instagram calling her “Queen,” “flawless” and “stunning.”
Rihanna’s Dark Lipstick For ‘ELLE’ Cover
Rihanna’s makeup was done by Tom Pecheux. On the cover, she rocks a dark lip, but inside the issue, she’s wearing barely anything. It’s that no makeup makeup look we saw all over the runway for Spring 2015.
The cover beauty centers around that dark lip, along with glossy lids and highlighted skin. Amazing! Her entire look is so high fashion.
Rihanna’s Q&A With ‘ELLE’
Read Rihanna’s funny interview with ELLE:
“ELLE: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Rihanna: That’s still a secret.
ELLE: What do people misunderstand about you?
Rihanna: I’m shy.
ELLE: What’s the sexiest thing a man has ever said to you?
Rihanna: Any man that tells me what to do is sexy!
ELLE: What’s your mantra?
Rihanna: “Fuck bitches, get money!”
ELLE: Your worst fear?
ELLE: The last time you were starstruck?
Rihanna: When I met Aaron Paul at the Spike awards.
ELLE: The best hangover cure?
Rihanna: Ice, Chinese food! And an upside-down trash can and towels, preferably next to the toilet.
ELLE: Are you a good cook?
Rihanna: I’m a fun cook! My specialty is seafood, but I also make the sickest mac ’n’ cheese you will ever taste.
ELLE: If you had to listen to three albums on repeat, what would they be?
Rihanna: KoL’s Only By the Night, Buju Banton’s ’Til Shiloh, and Michael Bolton’s Greatest Hits (1985–1995). And the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack.
ELLE: Do you ever sound like your mother?
Rihanna: My mother doesn’t say much, but that one “ummmm” is a full paragraph of things I was grateful she didn’t say. I catch myself doing that a lot recently.
ELLE: If you weren’t a singer, what would you be?
Rihanna: A wife.
ELLE: If you were a piece of jewelry, what would it be?
Rihanna: I’d be a choker!”
