I’m on the late show, but after seeing the gorgeous pictures of Rihanna’s new W Magazine cover, the infamous September issue to be more precise, I couldn’t help but gag over her flawless, tribal inspired feature. Tropical inspired, barely there makeup shows off her naturally beautiful face, with her hair pulled back, exposing her green eyes and structured cheekbones. Rihanna is smizing at us like #TyraTaughtHer, and I can’t get enough of it. Or her. The funny thing is that, right now, it’s Beyonce season. We all know this. And I love them equally. But (yes, Behive, there is a but), I’ve never wanted to look at someone as much as I do Rihanna. Whether for inspiration, awe, or plain and simple curiosity of what She’s wearing today, Rihanna is this generation’s celebrity fashion icon and I’m here for it and this W cover.

Are you? Let me know your thoughts on the new W cover, where Riri is looking oh, so #BeautifullyBrown!
