Whether it's on a red carpet or a magazine cover, Rihanna isn't shy about showing off her body. However, for the latest cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia, the 'Pour It Up' singer decides to explore her modest side.

Dressed in modern takes of traditional Middle Eastern clothing and accessorized with a number of head scarfs and mesh veils, RiRi looks elegant and very regal. 'The New Modesty, Cover Up in Style' is the tagline for the cover girl.

Since she's a lauded fashion maven, this style direction was a welcomed one for Rihanna. Yet, fans know her for celebrating the skin she's in more than covering up, especially this year. At the CFDA Awards earlier this month, she left little to the imagination, wearing a sheer glittering gown that exposed her breasts.

"I wanted to do something high fashion but something still traditional to their culture. And that's what we're doing. We're having fun with it," RiRi revealed in a behind-the-scenes video for the Harper's Bazaar Arabia shoot.

After looking at the other photos featured in the magazine spread, Rihanna clearly knows how to wear designs by Cartier and Dolce & Gabbana well and proves that she's no one-trick fashion pony.
