Fri-Yay, Fri-nally! *phew*
The weeks seem to be flying by since January got outta here, don’t you think?
Anyway today’s #FridayFaves are brought to you by Rihanna in her recent photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar. This is their 150th anniversary and would be the cover of the March 2017 issue to be released on February 21st.
This was the first image Rih Rih posted on Instagram, but that’s not what got me excited. Then came the subscribers issue….still unaware of the whole theme of the photo shoot.
The following photos then revealed exactly what this bad gal was up to.
As stated she was “on her Amelia Earhart shit!” Fashion bloggers were probably going crazy over all her outfits, but I’m just here for the photography and how well she displayed Ms. Earhart.
Quick History Lesson:
Amelia Earhart was a an aviation pioneer who is known for being the first female aviator to fly across the Atlantic ocean SOLO. Pretty badass right? She was also known as an author, advisor for aeronautical engineering, counsellor and wholeheartedly a feminist icon. Earhart was an inspiration and motivational pillar for young girls and women pilots across the world. Sadly, she was declared dead in absentia on January 5th 1939 after she disappeared while in an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937. Many books and movies have been written/produced on the life of Amelia Earhart and the speculations of her disappearance. For more on Amelia Earhart read here.
GIRL POWER to the MAX
There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer. Amelia Earhart was such a dynamic force in her industry, setting multiple aviation records in her time. So it was a no-brainer for me to team up with Harper’s Bazaar in honor of a woman who held her own with the big boys.” —Rihanna
Yes, so basically all the images were my fave! #Welp. I think my most fave is the one where she’s with the guys, basically leading the pack. *N.B these images were taken from Harper’s Bazaar website*.
“I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.” – Amelia Earhart (excerpt from a letter written to her husband in case of a dangerous flight)
