To commemorate their 25th anniversary, GQ British adorns their front cover with a wickedly seducing Rihanna, who wears a head full of hissing snakes.
Suggestive of the Greek mythology monster, Medusa, Rihanna sits shirtless, almost in a trance.
After the Pop princess heard the issue would be out, she took to social media to announce her cover look.
Medusa head on me like I’m ‘luminati!!!! She. x Damien Hirst [hashtag]GQ [hashtag]25thAnniversary [hashtag]COVER
According to GQ:
Damien Hirst is one of the world’s most highly acclaimed living artists. Rihanna is one of the world’s most successful pop icons. To celebrate GQ’s 25th anniversary, these two creative firebrands embarked on an art project the like of which has never been seen before. See the full portfolio, art directed by Damien Hirst, in the special anniversary issue of GQ, on newsstands and available to download from 31 October.
The 25th anniversary special issue of British GQ is out on 31 October, priced £3.99. British GQ is also available on the iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.
