Rihanna rides out the month in style by gracing the cover of the British edition of iconic American magazine GQ. In celebrating the magazine’s 25th anniversary, the Barbados native songstress was selected to cover the monthly periodical, which was art directed by legendary artist and collector Damien Hirst. Here we find Hirst drawing influence from the queen of snakes, Medusa, to re-imagine Rihanna. This shoot marks her second (admittedly racy) cover shot this month, with the “Pour It Up” singer also having covered Berlin-based independent 032c‘s Winter 2013/2014 issue. Fittingly, the issue is set to hit stands on October 31.
