Rihanna covers Harper’s Bazaar March 2015 Issue:
Rihanna has shot a new cover and editorial spread for the March 2015 Issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The photos were taken by Norma Jean Roy who also shot her Teen VOGUE spread back in 2006. The shoot also features Rihanna getting up close and personal with sharks and other aquatic life for the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller, Jaws. Speaking of sharks, the predators she swam with are tiger sharks and are at least 8 feet long. She wasn’t completely in harms way however, as these aquatic beasts were in a tank at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, Florida. We’re certain you’re just as excited as we are so let’s dive right into the shoot.
Rihanna covered the magazine in Solid Gold wearing a custom bronze jumpsuit from the runway of Balmain’s Spring 2015 Collection. Ironically, Miranda Kerr (pictured above) sported this same jumpsuit in its original color, red that was modeled on the runway by Rosie inside of her Harper’s Bazaar spread for the magazine’s February 2015 issue. This jumpsuit has optional crisscrossing straps, along with open sides and back. If you’ve been keeping up with Rihanna’s fashion with us, you’ll remember that she wore another jumpsuit from this collection last year in September.
You can splurge on this jumpsuit in red by pre-ordering here.

Rihanna completed this look with a stunning pair of Spring 2014 Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals. These ankle strap sandals are made with gold, black patent leather and have a 120mm covered heel. Her other accessories included a Jacquie Aiche Crescent Necklace and Bodychain, along with Van Cleef and Arpels Jackie O’ Cuffs. These hammered gold cuff bracelets by Van Cleef & Arpels were made famous by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The former first lady was an icon for her signature style and fashionable attire.
Her earrings are also from this brand.
In this photo, Rihanna is captured Taking the Plunge in a red Thierry Mugler swimsuit from the Mugler Spring 2015 Collection (Look 19 to be exact). Her accessory of choice here was a Chanel J12 Superleggera Watch. This watch is Matte black and features a self-winding mechanical chronograph, steel triple folding buckle, screw down push pieces and a crown. The coolest detail about this watch is the fact that it’s water-resistant for as deep as 200 meters! This feature enabled Rihanna to wear it underwater for her shoot.

I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly –Rihanna
