Rihanna has undergone transformation after transformation with as many hairstyles as she has hit singles, but she and her locks are on a whole new level for Paper. The superstar, who was just named Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year, covers the magazine’s “Break the Rules” issue for March 2017 — it’s hair-raisingly good.
The editorial finds RiRi in a local bodega because stylist Shannon Stokes said the concept “would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding.” Then he and Farren Fucci added a futuristic twist: “It became a challenge to envision what a girl who worked there might look like.” That vision was executed with sharp green spikes and luscious purple and orange ponytails paired with Dior, Acne Studios and Marni — her Bad Gal attitude completed the look.
