The W Magazine Rihanna photoshoot for the September 2014 cover sees the pop star indulging her strong Amazonian persona. Dressed in luxe furs, bold jewelry and not much else, the pop star is a queen of the wild, something many of her fans will agree with. Shot on location in a lush jungle at night, the photoshoot has an authenticity about it that makes it all the more epic.

Lensed by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the W Magazine Rihanna editorial was inspired by their title for the singer: "the world’s wildest style icon." Clad in the likes of Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors and Isabel Marant, the looks were perfected with creative face paint.
