Robyn Rihanna Fenty is many things and now that includes creating the best magazine covers of any artist. The range of settings, colors, hair, makeup, lighting and attitude is stunning across the magazine covers we picked. It is never the same and she is always taking you somewhere else where we feel sexy and free. There are no safety nets here. She is a true adventurer and seemingly open to all challenges. Whether it is for Paper, Vogue or Complex she brings her own ideas and influences to the set. She has worked with all the greatest photographers and creative directors but we think we know who is giving the direction.
