Rihanna is on the cover of Vogue's March 2014 issue, her third cover thus far. During her interview with the women's fashion magazine, RiRi and the reporter traveled to the Alexander Wang store in SoHo and the Tom Ford store in uptown Manhattan, where the singer herself styled the writer. And the conversation that ensued was pure gold.
The often-candid Rihanna was very open about everything, from all her fake jewelry to not wearing a bra. Not much else needs to be said; check out all the highlights below.;
On her weave:
"It's not my hair, but the girl who donated it, she's the bomb. Black girls never let anyone see this."
On her fake jewelry:
"My jewelry’s all fake—from Claire’s. Or I get it from my mom’s boutique in Barbados. Her shop’s called FAB-U-.”
On her love for menswear early on:
“When I was thirteen or fourteen, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”
Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing on Rihanna:
"We both love social media! We love to text!!! She is the new Wonder Woman!!!”"
On not wearing a bra:
“If I’m wearing a top, I don’t wear a bra,” she says. “If I’m wearing a bra, I just wear a bra.”
