Rihanna revealed the cover artwork for her first album since 2012, with a bold beauty look that included black lipstick and a mini bun hairstyle. The singer was sporting a ’90s-goth look, and we need to know what you think!
All eyes were on Rihanna and her gothic black lipstick and mini bun hairstyle when she revealed the cover and title for her upcoming album. The 27-year-old hosted a party for her 8th album announcement, Anti, at the MAMA Gallery in LA.
For the event, Rihanna wore her hair long with defined curls, pulling the top half of her hair back into multiple mini knots. The style reminded us of a No Doubt-era Gwen Stefani, and of course, Rihanna managed to make it work.
RiRi made another bold statement by pairing her tiny twists with a matte black lipstick. Having tried out blue, purple and brown shades, we know Rihanna is not afraid to experiment with color — this black shade added a gothic twist to her all-black ensemble. If you want to copy her color for yourself (Halloween is coming up, after all), try Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Midnight.

For those of us not on the party guest list, Rihanna shared multiple pics of the cover art to her Instagram, which was created by artist Roy Nachum.
