The 28-year-old R&B singer channeled Amelia Earhart's iconic aviation outfits for a high-fashion photo shoot that pays tribute to Earhart becoming the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. While it'd be pretty hard to fly in the ensembles Rihanna is rocking in the magazine, she does look pretty fly modeling helmets and goggles.
In one image, the "Work" singer rocks a Marilyn Monroe-esque white dress while on top of an old red airplane. In another photo, she's seen in a stunning $4,390 Ralph Lauren gown that is paired with a vintage flight cap -- because if anyone can make a flight cap trendy, it's Riri!
"There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world," Rihanna says, praising Earhart. "It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer. Amelia Earhart was such a dynamic force in her industry, setting multiple aviation records in her time."
She adds, "So it was a no-brainer for me to team up with Harper’s Bazaar in honor of a woman who held her own with the big boys.”
This isn't the first time Rihanna has agreed to participate in a daring photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar. In 2015, she swam with sharks for the magazine, calling the experience her "greatest adventure."
"It's going to be pretty hard to beat that," she said of the shoot, two years prior to posing on top of a plane!
