No wonder Rihanna was a no-show at Katy Perry’s wedding extravaganza in India this past weekend, the singer is in heavy promotion mode for her upcoming album. Considering she’s Perry’s BFF and the one who planned her bachelorette party, everyone expected her to attend. Well, everyone except Perry who knew Rihanna’s attendance was always iffy given her album drops on November 10. She’s still putting the final touches on her “Loud” CD before its release.
Part of that promotion train is Rihanna gracing the cover of Marie Claire UK. The fashion magazine enlisted the “Only Girl (In The World)” singer for their holiday issue and final one of 2010. The cover and inside spread showcases Rihanna looking gorgeous and glamorous. Her fiery red locks are complimented by white, silver and pink outfits. My favorite is the one where she’s dressed up in feathers. She’s pure perfection.
Satoshi Saikus photographed Rihanna for the spread.
The dramatic feather dress was designed by Sonia Rykiel.
In her interview, the singer opens up regarding the past year, her metamorphosis and how penning “Rated R” helped her cope.
