Rihanna has landed on the cover of so many magazines this year alone that we've almost lost count. But W Magazine's upcoming September cover shows RiRi in a different light -- you'll easily forget about the rest.

The songstress gets an extreme close-up as her Meadowlark septum ring takes the spotlight for this new issue. With sultry eyes and luscious lips, the image also has a metallic feel with the blue color added to her forehead.

In the issue, Rihanna, who was photographed by Mert&Marcus, is dubbed "The World’s Wildest Style Icon." The singer goes for a tribal look that has her body covered in furs, large statement jewelry and intense eye makeup. She also holds her ground with a few wolves.

But that's not all. Rihanna did another feature for the magazine that puts her on the same stage as two of fashion's iconic super models: Iman and Naomi Campbell.

Check out the photos from her two photo spreads and behind the scenes below.
