Justin Bieber Channels Rihanna on V Magazine Cover
We already know that Justin Bieber is one fashion forward dude. After all, most guys stick to black tuxedos for fancy events or their fave t-shirts and jeans for milling around town, but the "Baby" singer will rock anything from bowties and velvet to silver jumpsuits and embellished denim jackets.
Yet that knowledge didn't stop us from doing a double take when we saw the cover of V magazine's February 2012 music issue. Seemingly influenced by Rihanna, the Biebs gave us his best pout while wearing a mesh Dolce & Gabbana sweater. It's the type of top we expect to see at a Brazilian beach or European disco (they still have those, right?), not on the torso of a still-not-even-legal pop star. But despite it being a bit Jersey Shore circa 1983, we applaud the risk from one of the few who could pull it off.

While the cover puts a whole new spin on the word holy, the inside photos are even more revealing. Crowning Justin as the pop prince, the Canadian crooner can be seen in a Roman helmet, a silver space-age sleeveless suit and a whole lot of leather.
The clothes definitely aren't day-to-day wear, but they certainly add to the already stunning black-and-white photos. We'll admit it: we're impressed.
