For the magazine’s annual beauty issue, Rihanna weds couture and striking beauty looks in perfect harmony.
Just when you thought the current roundup of May 2019 magazine covers would remain somewhat of a snooze fest, Rihanna graced us with her presence by blessing the glossy pages of Harper’s Bazaar‘s May 2019 beauty issue.
For the publication’s cover, Rihanna looks into the camera with wispy red lashes and a collage of swiped-on color surrounding her striking green eyes. Her lips (with their famously perfect cupid’s bow) are coated in a greenish-gold hue. The kaleidoscope effect on Rihanna’s face — created by makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, who was responsible for the fashion muse’s skinny eyebrows on British Vogue‘s September 2018 issue — is matched by the John Galliano for Maison Margiela Artisanal Spring 2019 jumpsuit she wears.
The singer-turned-mogul’s ability to wed couture and striking beauty looks in perfect harmony doesn’t stop there. The issue’s inside images feature even more outstanding looks, including the one below, in which Rihanna strikes a pose in Dior Haute Couture among a slew of Ancient Greek sculptures:
