“Since my first Vogue cover, I’ve gotten a lot more fearless, a lot freer, a lot more comfortable with who I am,” said Rihanna in a behind-the-scenes video during her November Vogue cover shoot. Honestly, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. RiRi appeared on the most recent issue sporting a super-short pixie cut, seriously smokey eyes, a fire engine matte red lip and bold red strapless Valentino Resort lace gown exuding TONS confidence. It’s a totally different vibe than her soft and ethereal April 2011 cover where she looked more unassuming and cautious in her mermaid-inspired ensemble. “As I’ve started to change and grow up, I’ve started to embrace that. I’ve started to infuse that in my fashion, as well as my music,” Rihanna continued. We couldn’t be MORE on-board with Rihanna’s ever-evolving look, especially her freshly-shorn ’do. She said, “I love cutting my hair. The shorter it got, the more I was falling in love with it. I felt like the long hair was holding me back a little bit. I loved it, but it was always a thing I had to think about and make sure it was done. It felt brand new.”

Inside the mag, photographer Annie Leibovitz captured Rihanna striking a dramatic pose in another red lace dress—this time by Michael Kors. She finished the look with translucent red clogs and killer nude stiletto nails. Me-ow.

Rihanna WERKS her black Valentino lace dress paired with a leather bodice in the dusty hills of California. She finished the look with some fingerless Gaspar gloves and chunky slip-on heels. Perfection! For the full interview and even more photos from the spread, be sure to check out Vogue.com!
