If the show isn’t wow-worthy, it can be easy to flip through Style.com without really absorbing what I’m looking at, much like I did with my textbooks in high school (and, let’s face it, college).

Rihanna’s edgy cover shoot with Vogue Italia

Rihanna has done a lot since she began roughly four years ago. Quickly becoming one of the best-selling artists of this decade, and the one with the most solo #1s on the Hot 100 (tied withBeyoncé), and then the whole Chris Brown fiasco. Now, after months of no new music, and no contact with Chris Brown (we hope) she is coming out with a bang after releasing “Run This Town” with Jay Z and Kanye West, and supposedly having new...
