Rihanna, released in theaters this week with the first acting experience who has scored films Battleship. Rihanna, was the guest on the cover of ELLE magazine, May 2012.
According to Elle Magazine, For this month’s cover shoot, ELLE Creative Director Joe Zee imagined a romantic narrative starring Rihanna as the fiery heroine in a passionate affair with a salsa dancer. On an early February morning, the ELLE production team transformed the Veluzat Motion Picture Ranch northwest of Los Angeles into the ideal backdrop: a windswept town evocative of documentary photographer Robert Polidori’s shots of deserted, patina-rich Havana interiors. Photographer Tom Munro went full Hollywood, using a RED digital camera to film the entire shoot as a movie, with dialogue, extras—the works! We couldn’t think of a better way for Rihanna to embrace her new persona as a blond bombshell—a color she chose exclusively for our shoot—than acting out in fabulous couture pieces from Atelier Versace and styles from Balmain and Jil Sander. Ursula Stephen, RiRi’s hairstylist and longtime friend, smoothed her bold new locks with a conditioning mask, and makeup artist Mylah Morales chose black eyeliner to give our cover girl a sultry look. Whether Rihanna was hamming it up during love scenes or defying gravity by running across the set’s dirt roads in sky-high Dior heels, her unstoppable energy was as infectious as the salsa music playing on set.
