If you were getting used to Rihanna's girl-next-door look... don't. The fashion chameleon just tweeted an image of the funky new blond 'do she's sporting on the set of her ELLE cover shoot—an interesting choice on ELLE's part, considering their covers have so far been Katherine Heigl for January, Reese Witherspoon in February, and Blake Lively in March. Is the glossy going for an all blond 2012?
