Rihanna has pulled out all the stops for her new cover story.

The 32-year-old pop singer was seen in a massive black headpiece with a matching bra and mini skirt as she walked on a bridge for the January-February issue of Essence magazine

The songbird worked on the shoot with conceptual photographer Lorna Simpson who is known for her collages.

For the cover image Rihanna modeled a towering crystal headpiece that seemed added to the snap after the fact.

Huge crystal cubes that almost look like ice are set on the headdress, which complements her dazzling diamond Necklace by Michelle Ong from Siegelson.

Rihanna's stylist and right-hand man Jahleel Weaver also worked with her on the cover shoot where she could be seen modeling her own Fenty makeup.

The cover image was quite reminiscent of Lorna's photo-series Earth And Sky in which more than one picture shows a black woman with a crystal headdress.

'The striking visuals channel iconic black magazine spreads with an ethereal Rihanna,' Essence pointed out on Instagram. 'On newsstands January 19th.'

Lorna in particular has devised collages based on images from the black magazines Jet and Ebony as can be seen on her website.

Her previous work helps form the basis for the pictures with Rihanna, including one in which the top of the pop star's head dissolves into a starry night sky.

That image is strikingly similar to the piece Phenomena which was part of Lorna's Earth And Sky series that began in 2016.

The S&M singer, who along with Jahleel came up with the idea of going to Lorna, explained: 'But I like reaching for the stars and I like challenging myself.'

Lorna was just as effusive about her colleague, gushing that working 'with Rihanna and Essence magazine is quite incredible.'

She shared: 'As an artist, I'm able to deliver these unusual images of someone who is so well-known and so recognizable..It's an amazing opportunity.'

Her 22-year-old daughter Zora Simpson Casebere is writing a portfolio essay to go with the cover and Rihanna has referred to the project as 'a natural trifecta.'

Rihanna's latest cover comes amid rumors that she has started dating A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, who had been her pal for a decade.

The dynamic duo were seen putting on a loved-up display as they holidayed in Rihanna's native Barbados just before New Year's.

'They've been inseparable the past few weeks. It's a new relationship, but they both seem very into it,' said a People source early in December.

Meanwhile an Us Weekly insider dished that 'A$AP has been very into Rihanna for years,' claiming that romantically he 'was always the instigator' but that she 'would brush off his advances and kept him in the friend zone' in days past. 

A$AP Rocky spent a month in a Swedish jail in 2019 after his assault arrest stemming from a fight on a Stockholm street.

Celebrities and U.S. President Donald Trump urged that he be released and when he was convicted he was given a suspended sentence.

Rihanna's dating history includes Chris Brown - who infamously beat her in 2009 to the point she had to be hospitalized - and dashing Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel.

Meanwhile A$AP Rocky has had relationships with Victoria's Secret alumna Chanel Iman as well as his fellow rap star Iggy Azalea.
