Rihanna of Arabia in 'Harper's Bazaar Arabia'

While she's received plenty of backlash surrounding her risque magazine covers over the last few months, Rihanna proves she can make waves just as big with non-nude covers, too, looking absolutely dreamy in the new Haper's Bazaar Arabia issue.
In fact, the cover story for the magazine makes an ironic connection: "The New Modesty: How to Cover Up in Style," which appears to be the point for this shoot, proving that RiRi--the Queen of Free the Nipple--can master beauty on both extremes.
The "Diamonds" singer shared the pictures on her Twitter account, posing in various headpieces and adorned attire--covered completely from head to toe. Shot by Ruven Afanador--who Rih crowned her "new fave photographer"--each image portrays a mysterious, sexy yet conservative appeal to the pop star's stunning features.

Total expose

A few seasons designers try timidly to convince us to wear short jackets. Now this trend has exploded. From Miuccia Prada to McQuuen or Alexander Wang, all reinterpreted the bustier in a fresh manner.

Exposed midfits have been flexed for several seasons now, and spring/summer 2014 sees the trend explode. Elegant for evening or playful with matching shorts for summer days, never has there been a more attractive summer diverse offering of crop tops. The absolute rule: matching tops or bras suit and bottom. matching top and bottom halves takes the look beyond mere lingerie. Bra suits anyone?

Are feminine, sexy, delicate and act in the open. Sure, you should not leave the impression that you're out on the street in your underwear. Inspire yourself from Prada styling for a sporty look, and the one by Dolce & Gabbana for a retro-glamor
Tip: wear them over a shirt or combined with unpredictable tracks: grunge shirt, a jacket or a collage jacket or am xxs cashmere cardigan thrown shoulders.

The pairing of elegant skirt and bra top gives ladylike dressing a deliciously subversive spin.
Go plain and lacy or bold and bright, but above all go matching. A cohesive ensemble says considered and intentional cool.

Micro-wind-cheaters can be sporty, or conversely, one style. All about the model you choose. I suggest you instead of statement heels, the sneakers (do not forget, Rihanna wore a classic and elegant Givenchy suit with a pair of sneakers) ultracolorate sandals or masculine shoes.
