Today in Photoshop: Rihanna's Curves Go Missing on Cover of ELLE Magazine

In case you weren't aware, Rihanna loves her curves. The envelope-pushing fashionista was thrilled to see models flaunt their voluptuous figures on Paris runways (namely, Jean Paul Gaultier) according to her interview for the cover of Elle Magazine. 

“I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure,” Rihanna said.

Ironically, Rih's own curves seem to be missing from her Elle Magazine cover (waist? hips? boobs?). Critics are accusing Elle of being heavy-handed with airbrushing. Do you agree?

I love Rih's shape, in all it's curvy glory, and prefer to see it genuinely represented in editorial...especially, since Rihanna is vocal within the article about diversity in Fashion.

But...I'm still going crazy over that gorgeous purple and gold Balmain dress from the Fall 2010 runway in addition to the other glamazing Elle Magazine-worthy get-ups she rocks in the cover story. Check the shots, photographed by Tom Munro, below:

Love that leopard Lanvin trench! It seems the shoot is all leopard print (my favorite pattern, LOL). Hotness! Also, here's the runway shot and cover...I NEED that dress.

Whether she's draped in Balmain, Lanvin or one of her favorite designers, Alexandre Vauthier, Rihanna's curves bring all the boys to the yard. And one boy, in particular, Matt Kemp gets a sweet shoutout in the Elle Magazine article. 

As for ex Chris Brown, Rih tells Elle that she either wanted to "be with him again or get over it." Uh...there were options? I'll leave that for you guys to discuss...

What do you think of the cover? Does it look airbrushed? How much do you love Rih's fashion? And umm...someone explain that Chris Brown comment.

i will not be at all surprised if it's airbrushed to make her look thinner. but i won't be too shocked if it isn't...she's had some rough times. i know i lost a lot of weight when i went through a bad breakup : )
she looks great...i think she meant just what she said, in regards to the CB comment.

having trouble finding this issue in newsstands, but thanks for posting! she looks great, but a bit more curve appeal would've been the icing on the cake....
