What’s black, white and read all over? Rihanna’s high-fashion Elle magazine cover. The Princess of pop graces the front of the December issue, dressed in a black-and-white bustier and gown by Atelier Versace, structured soft up-do and a deep purple lip.

Shot by Paola Kudacki, RiRi dons fresh off the runway digs including a lace Giorgio Armani Privé veil and ensembles from Valentino and Dior Haute Couture.

Although the magazine hits newsstands on Nov. 18, Elle offers a sneak peek at what the Bajan beauty had to say during her Q&A. Check out her responses to the best hangover cure, her worst fear, what she'd be if she wasn't a singer and the one item she really wants for Christmas.
