Rihanna had people turning heads with her Brittish Vogue cover. While some were dubbing her looks as majestic, others were giving her the side-eye for allegedly appropriating Chola culture. While the claims of cultural appropriation is a completely different story, they are still addressed indirectly in this behind the scenes clip. Before that, Rihana talks artistic direction in collaboration with Edward Enninful.
She first speaks of fashion photographer, Nick Knight.
Although the looks they were creating were quite edgy, the floral arrangements added a softer beauty to their esthetic. On a cute note, Rihanna reveals her love for flowers. Her appreciation for them seems to come close to her love of alcoholic beverages.
She also opens up about her reasons for loving fashion.
Then the thin eyebrows come into play. According to the photograph Enninful holds up as Rihanna’s reference, her inspiration came from vintage Hollywood.
The excerpt concludes with the pair’s expression of appreciation. Rihanna is “honored” to be part of Edward’s first September issue. He also shares the love.
