No one was doubting the legitimacy of Rihanna’s cool. She’s probably the only celebrity who both has the receipts and the spine to cuss the doubters out. But her new visual autobiography (simply named Rihanna) somehow doubles down on the cool by showing the less glamorous parts, not just the glossy ones. Eating a mango? Stunning. Gone swimming? Graceful. Getting ready in a car? Masterful. It’d be rude if it wasn’t so iconic. With the massive coffee-table book out today, available online at therihannabook.com, here are some of our favorite everyday Rihanna moments from Rihanna.
Standing at 16 inches tall, the print version of this photo is large enough for you to jump right in and hang out onstage à la children’s program Blue’s Clues. Wait, maybe we should write that fanfic?

This pose! Everything she does is art, so thank goodness someone is capturing it all.

Would happily trade lives with that hairspray, those sunglasses, those gloves, that necklace, really anything in her proximity.
The legendary belt boots. A perfect example of how Rihanna can make even the wildest clothing items look totally natural. That’s what we call a fashion icon, okay!
Suddenly we need to buy a lot of Fenty body highlighter.
