Rihanna has her finger on the trigger, of a camera that is, in a new photo spread for Fader magazine’s 100th issue. The analogy is clear; Rihanna is in control of every facet of her image and knows how to bring out her most sensual self.

Call it selfie extreme. Rihanna shoots and aims the big-box portrait camera to come up with a stunning series of images.

Landing the cover makes a lot of sense. The exotic Barbadian beauty is starting to rev up her career again after a near three-year layoff since her last album. But she deserved a break.

Rihanna was and still is one of the hardest working women in show business. She cranked out seven albums in seven years and toured almost continuously. She also partied like a rock star, to the point of exhaustion and hospitalization more than once.

In fact, it’s hard to believe her first album Music of the Sun was released 10 years ago in 2005. By now, she should be entering a pop music retirement home.

But Rihanna is as fresh as ever. After all, she’s in her prime at 27 and firmly established in the constellation of pop music stars. And, she’s about to release her eighth studio album R8.

She went with a feminine look in an Awaveawake satin slip dress over a pink Rochas ribbed shirt, according to the magazine. She also wore her signature Puma shoes.

Photographer Renata Raksha worked with Rihanna on the shoot and Shibon Kennedy handled styling.
