Rihanna, who's just been named Vogue Italia's "2012 Woman of the Year" for the second time in a row, is the latest cover-girl of Harper's Bazaar. On the cover she dons a white silk Calvin Klein Collection dress paired with gold link Neil Lane bracelet. Between the pages, the fresh-faced beauty wears an array of sexy all-white ensembles by designers Tom Ford, Balmain, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.
In the accompanying interview, the "Where Have You Been" star opens up about falling in love with Chris Brown, collaborating with him year later, and the difficulty of dating new people.
"When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed," she revealed about her relationship with Brown. "Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I'd feel that pain in my life. I'm afraid of feeling that again."
Despite her pain, the singer has overcome, so much that she has even collaborated with her abusive ex-boyfriend on her latest album - Brown remixed her hit single, "Birthday Cake".
She addressed the backlash she received after working with her ex, saying, "I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn't see it that way because I'm in a different place."
Rihanna is known to "talk that talk", being music's ultimate bad-girl.
"[I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair,"
While, the Bajan beauty may be a rebel in her style life, she's more reserved in her love life.
"I have been conservative in my love life... it's pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I'll hang out. But the minute I find that we're getting too close I just - I don't let people in."
On the alternate cover, the popstar wears a body hugging gold bodysuit paired with knee-high snakeskin boots. The star's physique is one of the most coveted in the industry. But with a fit body, comes some down-side consequences. According to Rihanna, she has lost her butt.
"I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I'm eating everything in life," the trim and slim singer said, "I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now."
Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot on Harper's Bazaar's Facebook page.
