Rihanna has stunned us yet again!
The singer and beauty mogul collaborated with renowned artist Lorna Simpson for the cover and 12-page portfolio for Essence’s January/February 2021 issue, and she’s serving us some serious celestial goddess realness.
The mag commissioned Simpson — who is known for her art that recontextualizes images of Black women from vintage issues of Ebony and Jet magazines — to “interpret modern-day beauty” in collaboration with the superstar. It all resulted in an ethereal spread entitled, Of Earth & Sky, which honestly looks like it belongs in the Museum of Modern Art.
Don’t believe us? Ch-ch-check out the brilliant cover and more shots from the spread (below)!
