In the August issue of In Style magazine, which hits stands this Friday, cover girl Rihanna opens up about her rule-breaking fashion philosophy — and her future. While her non-conformist sense of style sets her apart from the crowd, she tells the magazine it’s all about having fun and staying true to herself. “I love to play to both sides of my personality — the girlie and the tough. That’s what makes my style different.” And taking her own path sometimes garners unexpected attention, especially when it comes to that famous short bob. “The first time I heard people were asking for the Rihanna, it was really flattering and maybe a little strange. It caught be by surprise, but now I feel it’s a very cool thing. I don’t feel the pressure to change it up again at all. I like it, as they like it.” At just 20 years old, the singer sees her future approaching fast, telling the mag, “I feel like I have so much more to accomplish before I’m 21.” But what about a decade down the line? “In 10 years I want to have already started my family and have some business of my own. A fashion line, a makeup line, and I still want to be doing what I’m doing at a much bigger capacity — by the grace of God!” Click here for behind-the-scenes footage of the cover shoot, and get the full interview in In Style, just in time for the weekend.
