Rihanna has debuted the first promo shot for #R8, and it is striking.

As in many of her past photo shoots, the Unapologetic diva appears topless, taking off her long coat to bare her upper body. Like the “FourFiveSeconds” visuals by Inez and Vinoodh, this Paolo Roversi, fashion editorial-worthy photo is a minimal black-and-white snapshot. What’s most striking about this image, though, is how Rihanna is almost unrecognizable, her eyebrows drawn in thick and with little to no arch.
