After her appearance at Harvard University this week, where she became the institution’s Humanitarian of the Year, Rihanna’s latest photo shoot went live on Paper magazine Friday.
With a look that can properly be summed up as “bodega glam,” the shoot took place in New York in early February, and fans on social media were quick to voice support for the finished product in tones of awe.
Can you believe Rihanna invented punk?
It was a popular sentiment.
Stylist Shannon Stokes, who worked alongside Farren Fucci, said her team took inspiration from the singer’s “budding acting career” ― she’s set to appear with Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway in the all-female “Ocean’s Eight.” The resulting imagery casts her “as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future.”
For those keeping track at home, Rihanna has also invented the practice of grocery shopping.
In her Harvard speech, Rihanna discussed her philosophy of charity as she accepted the honor for her work promoting healthcare and education in the Caribbean. The singer helped set up a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine and funds a scholarship program to help Caribbean students attending U.S. schools.
“All you need to do is help one person, expecting nothing in return,” Rihanna stated.
She just keeps giving.
