Annie, you did it again.

So its rarely I walk past the magazine racks at Target and gets stopped in my tracks. But this red headed bombshell just got me going. Was it the picture or the subject? I think it was the perfect marriage of both.

Annie Leibovitz photographed Rihanna for this months issue of Vogue. Her images were so manufactured yet raw. Much like Rihanna. I love how Annie, who emerged with The Rolling Stones in the 70's can become so intimate with someone who is defining the pop-culture of today. A career spanning 40 years, so consistent and brilliant.

Of course its an ode to the photographer and the photographed. The camera almost seems non- existent.

I need to find my rolling stone...
