Thoughts On Rihanna’s ‘Rated R’ Album Cover
Dropping November 23rd.
While the image below had formerly been rumored to be the album cover for Rihanna’s upcoming release, the official album art has now surfaced. The Grace Jones-esqe black & white cover was shot by the legendary fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth in Berlin the same week she was spotted sporting close to nothing in Paris for Fashion Week.
“Rihanna was looking to create something a bit new for the look of the album,” Von Unwerth said. “She’s so beautiful, sweet and tough at the same time-and a pleasure to shoot. We had so much fun giving her a bit of edge-I loved taking her beauty and finding a new dramatic look. She’s fantastic to work with-very giving, very creative, very involved in every aspect of the shoot, and ready to push the boundaries.“
