Rihanna Channels Another Iconic Queen For CR Fashion Book

Let them eat cake, cake, cake, cake, cake

Rihanna has been hella busy on her Anti tour, launching her Puma line, getting tattoos for Drake, etc., so she's been noticeably MIA from newsstands as of late.

Fortunately, CR Fashion Book is rectifying that, by putting her on the cover of Issue 9 dressed as the modern-day version of another iconic queen — Marie Antoinette, ever heard of her?

The entire issue is themed around the infamous monarch, with Rihanna on the cover in a corset and the boning of a hoop skirt. Why is Rihanna on the cover of a Marie Antoinette–themed magazine, you ask? I'll allow Carine Roitfeld — you know, the woman who lends her initials to CR Fashion Book — explain.

She says, "On the cover is Rihanna, who shares with Marie Antoinette an air of royalty that I, and the world it seems, find intoxicating."

In another shot, Rihanna wears a Dior blazer and holds a boob. When you're a queen, you can do whatever you want.
