Just last week, RiRi shared photos from the shoot with the Twitterverse and, as expected, they did not disappoint.
Although this bad gal was a bit (read: a lot) more covered up than usual, she had very good reason.
“I wanted to do something high fashion, but still something traditional to their culture. And that’s what we’re doing, we’re having fun with it,” she said.
RiRi also mentioned that everything photographer Ruven does “looks magical,” and judging by the pictures he shot, she certainly was not kidding.
