THERE IS NOT JUST ONE, but three cover stars gracing W Magazine’s September Issue. Having won the CDFA for Fashion Icon earlier this year, popstar icon Rihanna was named the “World’s Wildest Style Icon” in an edgy cover and tribal-inspired shoot for the American publication. As if the shoot alone weren’t captivating enough, another editorial inside was simply breathtaking, with co-stars being none other than legendary supermodels Naomi Campbell and Iman Mohamed.

Shot by photographer Emma Summerton, the three came together for a special story celebrating the fashion label Balmain and its talented 28-year-old head designer Olivier Rousteing who (making a brief fashionable cameo) believed the stunning trio best embodied his style.

These woman are inspiring to so many different people. Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward.” Oliver Rousteing


Some of the most influential faces in the fashion industry, the three were styled in the “Phresh Out the Runway” shoot by W’s Fashion and Style Director Edward Enninful and dressed head to toe in Balmain’s upcoming Fall 2014 collection.  With three different generations pictured–Rihanna, 26, Naomi, 44, and Iman, 56–this beautiful photo shoot shows that true beauty never fades. —Anita
