Rihanna - "InStyle" August 2008

Rihanna -

Rihanna graces the August 2008 pages of InStyle magazine in a gorgeous white Bill Blass dress.

In this issue, the 20-year-old Barbadian bombshell reveals her style secrets and tattoo diary.

And as for the mag’s new look, group publisher Lynette Harrison Brubaker said, “When InStyle launched, what people knew about celebrity was more limited. Now everyone knows everything about celebrity, so we have to keep more relevant. And it’s not enough to say celebrities are the only stylemakers because there’s 20 people around them in an entourage helping them make choices.”

    wow, they chose a horrible photo! she’s much better looking than that.

  • Paul

    she looks like a guy wearing lipstick

  • suri

    I like her but not the hair

  • Just Me

    I don’t think that’s the real cover. It’s probably an outtake.

  • Victoria

    Rihanna is gorgeous, but she does look very masculine in this shot.

  • Innocent

    Something is wrong with her eyes. Too much photoshop?

  • Innocent

    ETA – the dress looks pretty.

    fashion icon.

  • Heidi

    her new haircut is so ugly…i dont like this pic

  • Anna

    She is the most stylish singer I’ve seen! She should always be the cover in magazines like that.

  • star

    If they were going to put her on the cover, you’d think they have picked a better shot.

  • Audi

    Dammnn …She got Ugly!!

  • Gucci

    She looks exactly like a tranny version of Dione Warwick.

  • delicious

    Mariah’s retoucher is working round the clock. He/she did a hatched job on Rihanna.

    man in a wig

  • Rihanna fan

    Riri is very beautiful with her short do. She is the only one in the biz who has switched up her look and looks good with it.

  • Sue

    That doesn’t even look like Rihanna.

  • Lori

    That is really ugly. She’s beginning to look like a female impersonator.

  • BURN


  • wtf

    Who is that?

  • suga

    Is she wearing contacts? She looks like she’s going to cry.

  • ben

    she’s cute but she’s getting too much attention lately. she’s becoming overexposed

  • Queen

    I think she’s attractive but she should be careful how they style her – in certain angles she does look like a drag queen.

  • Elmo

    Rihanna looks like a demented elf.

  • hiya

    The hair is awful but I’m glad to see a woman of color on the cover.

  • showtime

    This is the best they could do?

  • Jonas

    beautiful eyes…but not really a pretty face…appeal??

  • nikomilinko

    she looks good, but I prefer Whitney when she was younger

  • kiki

    oh my god,she looks awful there!

  • avionne

    I love her and thinks she looks great!!!!

  • Helena

    The photoshopper obviously hates her, she looks HORRIBLE!

  • john

  • nana

    the jealous will die, riri you’re too beautiful and a wonderful voice

  • chantall

    ok this is offically the wierdest most manly shot of her i hav eva seen she doesnt look like this

  • ama

    oh people, isn’t it obvious that the magazines purposely made the photo a bit unpolished? or haven’t you gotten that we’re viewing her cover here on a BLOG as opposed to the actual mag…a BLOG that, like most, is famous for hourly updates of celebrity CANDIDS. So, put that together and in proper context (remembering this is the age of “reality tv” greats like paris, nicole, and kim) and see if you can’t get that ultimately magazines are going much more REALISTIC with their cover images. The last glammed up cover I saw, Gwyneth Paltrow’s was one of the worst sellers in that particular magazine’s history…so it’s a bit convoluted, but do you get it? We are a generation who’d rather see Brit’s crotch shots of Winehouse’s crack binges…

  • puma

    The cover doesn’t look realistic. Rihanna looks like the The Joker from Batman.

  • wing

    There’s nothing to be jealous of here. This is bad photoshop gone wild! She really does look like a tranny. What a shame cause she’s usually a cutie.

  • JADE:P

  • Mrs.chrisbrown

    Ri Ri looks very beautiful on the cover. I am really enjoying her cd Good Girl Gone Bad. It is seldom that I love a cd but Ri Ri has gotten better with age and I look forward to seeing her for years to come.
