Rihanna Rocks Gorgeous Braids On i-D Cover

As if she Rihanna looks this beautiful. As if!

Ahead of the release of her eighth album, the style chameleon covers i-D magazine's Music Issue looking like a goddess.

The 26-year-old creative director of Puma wears huge hoop earrings, a navy Céline top and beautiful bantu braids (all hail women who rock braids!).

"She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I've ever had the pleasure of working with," says i-D's Fashion Director Alastair McKimm. "The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She's the ultimate icon of our time."

Rih was generous enough to share some photos from the shoot on her Instagram page and hot damn, girl is looking good.

In one pic, the "Diamonds" singer wears nothing but a pair of the biggest pants we've ever seen (almost—Rih has worn a pair of enormous denim pants before):

In a close-up pic, RiRi's septum ring is on full display:
