Rihanna is back at it! The 26-year-old style star (along with her prominent septum piercing) is covering the September issue of W, and the photos from the shoot are, well, pretty animalistic, to say the least.

Bad Girl RiRi is done up in warpaint and tribal accoutrements -- everything from feather headpieces, to furs, to the aforementioned, bejeweled and bedazzled septum piercing. But seriously, you've got to see these photos -- Bad Girl RiRi is 100% wild child in them, and the visual result is absolutely stunning. In one photo, RiRi is actually surrounded by a pack of wolves. Tribal makeup and jewelry is out in full force -- think a fully painted face, bold purple and red eyeliners, and lots and lots of leather, suede, skins, and bone. There may or may not be antlers in RiRi's hair (er...headpiece) at one point. The whole thing is pretty epic, if you ask us, and we're excited to see what the rest of September covers will bring.
