W magazine is it people. They have taken over and now they are the September issue to look out for. Rihanna is the muse of creative and fashion director Edward Enninful for the September issue of W magazine where she is the last woman on earth. For this shoot Steven Klein photographs Rihanna in an undisclosed location in New York in custom-made clothes from the biggest and best fashion houses; Mason Margiela, Prada, Christopher Kane, Alexandre Wang, Dior, Proenza Schouler and jewelry from Cartier, Jennifer Fisher and so on.
And the make up was simply brilliant. Path McGrath is a genius. Not only did the makeup look stunning but went with the theme. Gag worthy makeup armor. Love this whole shoot.
The September issue game has been raised. Vogue has a lot to live up to.
