Rihanna has added another cover to her resume, this time gracing the pages of W magazine. The shoot is entitled "last woman on Earth" and has a post-apocalyptic vibe where she is transformed into a femme fatale character, accompanied by subordinate men and canines.
W magazine's creative director Edward Enninful shed some light on the shoot stating "I take inspiration from everywhere. I was obsessed with these pictures of military men running around with dogs on their backs, and I was like 'Oh, that's a statement about today'. The thing about Rihanna is that she never wants to repeat something she's done, and she did a video where she wore lots of camouflage- so I knew I didn't want to do a military story. Instead, I wanted to do something that was set in the future world. We thought, 'Wouldn't it be nice to take this concept and apply it to the last woman on earth', the last warrior on earth, really".
The aesthetic was a collaborative process with Steven Klein, Andrew Kevin Walker and a plethora of designers all contributing. See the full shoot above in the gallery!
