For Rihanna's Role as the Music Queen, Everything Is Custom
For W's September 2016 cover shoot, Rihanna played a queen of the post-apocalyptic world. And looking like a royal, of any kind, required getting the royal treatment. "Rihanna is playing the Queen, so everything has to be custom made specifically for her," explained W's creative fashion and style director Edward Enninful. With that in mind, Wtasked a handful of designers, from Jonathan Anderson at Loewe to John Galliano at Maison Margiela, to dream up a custom outfit for her royal highness. Here, a side-by-side comparison of the designers' sketches with the final looks.
