With Beyoncé making headlines for her iconic treatment of the upcoming September issue of Vogue, enlisting a black photographer to shoot the cover for the first time in the magazine’s history, Rihanna decided it was the right time to be unveiling her own cover for the U.K.’s version of the coveted September issue. Of course, using her marketing mind, she likely knew that the masses would be searching for Vogue news so now, she will be among the top results. And we have to say, she looks absolutely stunning on the cover.
RiRi has been rumored to be releasing two albums this year, one dancehall and one pop, and while she has yet to confirm her plans, we may receive some clarity once her feature drops with British Vogue. Showing off her cover, everyone’s favorite Bajan superstar became a nature goddess. The singer wore a giant flower crown on her head as her eyebrows looked nearly penciled on. Serving looks to the camera, Rihanna is also breaking ground with her cover shoot like Beyoncé did as this is the first September cover of British Vogue.
The “Big Fashion Issue” is hitting newsstands August 3. Hopefully, she divulges some information about her musical plans for the next few months.
