Having not released music this year, Rihanna has stayed in the news with several bold photo shoots, including a topless one for France's Lui Magazine, but this new one for W Magazine has to be (quite literally) the wildest one yet. Covering the September issue, titled "Fall Fashion Drama," the pop star dons furs and face paint, and hangs out with some lupine friends.

Despite the insane earrings, nose ring, hair-accentuating twigs and thigh-high boots, I think it's safe to say that the animal skull pendant Ri Ri wears here wins the award for biggest eye-catcher here. That's some witchy, Stone Age shit, girl. 

Check out the cover and accompanying photos in the gallery above.
