If you haven’t noticed Rihanna is becoming a style and fashion ICON and today her I-D magazine cover was released, with her sporting a septum ring and braided bantu knots.

For the cover, RiRi is celebrating the upcoming release of her eighth studio album, ‘R8.’ There’s still no word on when the project will arrive in stores, so for now we will just have to wait. Earlier this week she released the Paul McCartney and Kanye West ‘FourFive Seconds,’ so i’m sure the album will be here especially with the Grammys around the corner. Check out the she posted on her instagram from the photo shoot earlier today.
