Inspiration: Rihanna Post Apocalypse in W September 2016 by Steven Klein

Posted on August 2, 2016

Who will rule the world in a post-apocalyptic scenario? It will be the one who ruled the world and the rebel youngsters before the Apocalypse. And that is, for many years now, Rihanna. The Queen of Rebels.

Probably the best fashion editorial Rihanna has done in the past year or so. She’s done a lot of amazing photos but this is out of the ordinary and it seems like she’s really pushing forward the boundaries towards an edgier and moodier vibe, finally.

At this point in her career, Rihanna can play around and do some artsy stuff as well. So here’s to a great fashion editorial from W Magazine, The September Issue 2016.

And here’s where the credits for this amazing piece of work go to:
