Rihanna in the flesh and in Extreme Couture

Rihanna‘s penchant for nipple covers is no secret after she wore them very publicly. Whilst such a public fusion of the lingerie as outerwear and nudity fashion trends earned accusations of tackiness, the reaction to Rihanna wearing even more revealing outfits, in some instances again paired with nipple covers, in the September 2009 issue of Vogue Italia is unlikely to be equally as harsh.

In an editorial entitled Extreme Couture and shot by Steven Klein, latherings of flesh are mixed with heavy bondage influences. And heavy is an apt word; so layered and textured is this editorial, we’re glad that it’s monochrome; colour might have been a severe overload.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
