Rihanna Swims With Sharks For Harper's Bazaar

If she wasn't an icon before, Rihanna certainly is now.

The pop star announced that she was Harper's Bazaar's 2015 March cover girl on her Instagram account on Wednesday, revealing the cover as well as a couple more pics from the shoot, shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Check her out in this '70s-inspired gold jumpsuit, custom-made by Balmain's creative director, Olivier Rousteing:

Although she looks stunning in these pics, our attention was drawn to the underwater photo that is a real feast for the eyes. In the pic, the "FourFiveSeconds" singer literally swims with real sharks while wearing a simple white one-piece swimsuit.

For those who don't believe that the 26-year-old Barbadian beauty got up close and personal with the intimidating creatures, RiRi shared a behind-the-scenes video of herself diving deep into the water.

Now that's a truly bad-ass move.
