Is red Rihanna's lucky color?

For her first Vogue cover, in April 2011, the pop star rocked a scarlet mane. This time around, she's pairing her new jet-black pixie cut with a floral-embroidered strapless frock in—you guessed it—crimson.

The singer has reunited with photographer Annie Leibovitz for the magazine's November cover story, which sees her getting one with nature in divine designs from Valentino, Dior Haute Couture, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Rosamosario, and Revillon.

Shot on location at the Tejon Ranch in Lebec, California—where she crawls on rocks, gets covered in dust, and poses in a field—the budding fashion designer dishes on rumors that she's been flirting with Robert Pattinson ("the most bulls**t ever," she says) and her short new 'do.

"[It was] spur of the moment," she tells Vogue's Jason Gay at the MTV VMAs. "My hair was supposed to be down to my a** tonight."

The girl who makes Tom Ford's "knees go weak" has also found a fan in designer Stella McCartney, who is reportedly collaborating with Rihanna a fashion venture.

"We are just at the beginning of what Rihanna can achieve," McCartney teases.

No doubt. In the love department, however, the Barbados-born beauty says there is plenty of room for improvement.

"I have not been on a date in forever," she says. "Like two years. Haven't gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero—I would love to go on a date. I'm a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point.

"Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my a** back home. He doesn't even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. I'm waiting for the man who's ballsy enough to deal with me. I'm going to wait, though. You always find the wrong s**t when you go looking."

Speaking of which, Rihanna also opens up about her renewed friendship with ex Chris Brown, which has ruffled feathers in light of Brown's physical attack on her during their relationship.

"To the world, I feel like there's no closure," she says. "There's some obsession that's continued even throughout when we weren't friends or couldn't be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn't let go. They haven't seen any progress in our friendship—But they're not on the inside. They can't see what I see, unless they're sitting in my point of view. I guess I'll learn to accept that."
