August is here and in the fashion magazine world, that means the always important September issue. Rihanna graces the cover of W magazine as “Tomorrow, the last woman on earth and the ruling warrior queen in a dark, dystopian future.”

Crowned in a Cartier tiara, Rihanna cries tears of gold as she dons earrings and a necklace also a la Cartier. The Bajan beauty stuns in custom made Maison Margiela, Prada, Dior and more with W’s Creative Director, Edward Enniful explaining that he didn’t want RiRi to “wear clothes off the runway because a queen gets her clothes made.”

With the other major publications yet to debut their September covers, W definitely raised the bar high.
