Just because it’s Rihanna and you have talented art directors, stylists, that all doesn’t mean the end result will be appealing.
Just like previous time time, when Rihanna promoted Armani Underwear (that looks like any ordinary underwear but priced like some masterpieces), this new Rihanna fashion editorial with Elle disappoints.
It only kinda looks “interesting” just because video production is great, photographer did his job well and it’s tempting to see a celebrity in lingerie.
But do you really really find this whole picture of ordinary black bra, terrible haircut, church, dramatic lightning somehow appealing?
And granny-pants-vintage-high-waisted-style panties with some fishnet clothing – I know there are many fashionistas and designers those are cheering and trying to convince it looks really good, but c’mon, it looks terrible.
I do understand director’s job is to create a convincing story, so here goes some drama:
How the heck magazine such as Elle can allow this? Most likely that’s the part where having Rihanna pays their bills.
This photo saves the day – but only because Rihanna doesn’t dominate here:
And for a nice photo like this, Elle had to make Rihanna look like not Rihanna – if you wouldn’t see face, wouldn’t recognize her.
Video looks sort of ok, but in general – empty.
Please, drop Rihanna from Fashion magazines and do not let me see her in lingerie again.
