Rihanna In A New Shoot For ‘Garage’ Magazine Photographed by Deana Lawson

We stan a photoshoot queen! Rihanna is back with a new spread for Garage magazine for their  ‘The Human Future’ September issue. Shot by acclaimed photographer, Deana Lawson, Ri dazzles with vintage heirlooms including a striking petal-pink rose bolero with modern pieces and jewel tone gowns.

Stylist Carlos Nazario worked on the shoot and shared some details about his inspiration. In particular, he explained that he wanted to try to keep things fresh for Rihanna. “Ri is somebody who sees so much, and she, obviously, is constantly seeing current season samples,” he said. “I felt like it wasn’t that exciting for her to only wear things that I’m sure she’s familiar with, you know?” “I think her comfort zone is to push it, right? I don’t think she feels comfortable when she feels like she’s worn it before,” he said.

“But I did want to give her something a little bit different. I wanted to take all the elements — their grace and presence, and Rihanna’s fashion energy, and Deana’s particular style of photography — and we wanted to create something that felt new.”

There is no word yet on what the accompanying interview will cover, but it will hopefully delve into plans for Ri’s ninth studio album. It is rumored to reintroduce a dancehall sound to her musicality, and rumor has it that it is on the way shortly. In the meantime, check out images from the shoot below:

Deana Lawson in conversation with Arthur Jafa: “I believe in destiny, and I know I was destined to be an artist with a camera. It all adds up: my grandmother who worked for George Eastman, my mother who was a secretary at Kodak, my aunt who helps people ‘see,’ my father who was the family photographer…how could it not be destiny?” Tap our link in bio for the rest of Lawson’s conversation with Arthur Jafa on http://garage.vice.com.
