Rihanna Covers British Vogue’s September Issue
While Beyonce is covering Vogue in the United States, Rihanna is officially the cover girl for British Vogue. What makes this equally as great is that this is the very first September issue for Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s first black and first male editor-in-chief.
Rihanna showed the EIC love on Instagram, saying:
I’m so honored to be on the cover of your first September issue with British Vogue. Thank you for considering me!
Enninful also styled Rihanna for the magazine. She wore Prada, Gianvito Rossi, Alexander McQueen, and of course, Savage x Fenty.
In his editor’s notes Enninful says:
Ultimately, September is all about the hits of the season – giving you, the Vogue reader, the authority to make the most informed style choices for the months ahead. As for the cover? I always knew it had to be Rihanna. A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her. No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental the mood, you never lose her in the imagery. She is always Rihanna. There’s a lesson for us all in that. Whichever way you choose to dress the new season, take a leaf out of her book and be yourself.
The September issue of British Vogue hits newsstands on Friday, August 3rd.
