The perfect modesty cover girl, Rihanna, ushers in a new era of modesty in traditional Middle Eastern clothes on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in a gauzy black headpiece with a bow and multiple brooches. In one look, her face is covered in a gold modesty mask, while she shows cleavage. It’s beaded, bedazzled, appropriation subversion. Cheers Rihanna, you’ve taken us from shock, to half-modesty, to straight up confusion. You’re a flippity flopping fashion icon. (Facebook)
