Rihanna appears in a stunning new photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue.

The singer posed in a striking textured orange coat and fringed dress against a hilly landscape in one shot, captured by Gray Sorrenti, who is the daughter of fashion photographer Mario.

Another photo showed Rihanna, 32, reclining on a bed wearing lingerie.

The cover image, meanwhile, saw the star wearing a crisp white shirt, an embellished pearl collar and bold red lipstick.

Last month, Rihanna unveiled Fenty Skin, the new skincare arm of her hugely popular beauty brand Fenty Beauty.

In recent years the star, who released her eighth album Anti in 2016, has put her music on the backburner while focusing on building her fashion and beauty empire.

Her Savage x Fenty lingerie line debuted in 2018, with her luxury label Fenty, founded under fashion house LVMH, following in 2019.

On its launch, the star became the first black woman to head up a luxury brand for the conglomerate.

Discussing her music career in a recent interview with Access Hollywood, though, Rihanna promised that new

tracks could be coming “sooner than fans think.”

“Music is still my first love,” she said. “I can’t wait to put something out that I’m really proud of and excited about.

“It’s probably gonna be sooner than my fans think, but I’m just gonna leave that alone,” she added.

“They don’t leave me alone, but I haven’t neglected ’em. I still got you. Music is still my baby.”

The September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK is available to buy from August 13.
