By now I think it's fair to say that when it comes to magazine covers and the mogul Robyn "Rihanna" Fenty, we expect nothing less than slayage.
Especially when it comes to the Holy Grail of fashion, Vogue, the Fenty Beauty creator doesn't miss a beat.
Rihanna and Vogue front covers.????
Her latest cover for the fashion bible is Vogue Hong Kong's September issue, and she's the first black woman to grace the front since its launch in March.
A year after she became the first black women to appear on the September cover of British Vogue, RiRi has done that yet again, and as expected, she looks flawless.
OK, so the magazine hasn't been around for that long, but considering it took British Vogue 102 years to have a black woman on the September cover, we're flagging this moment because it's a testament to Rihanna's growing influence in the fashion industry.
The cover, shot by Hanna Moon, describes the Bajan songstress as a "fashion force" and coincides with the expansion of Fenty Beauty to the Asian market. The brand arrives in Hong Kong, Macau, Seoul, and Jeju on Sept. 3.
Vogue Hong Kong debuted in spring 2019 and is the 26th edition of the fashion publication. It offers an additional two digital covers to complement the print cover.
The publication describes the singer as an "icon for our times and the ultimate fashion force" and also notes how "her multi-hyphenate prowess manifests in a symphony of patterns."
Sound about right.
I would now like to conclude this post by submitting my petition for that dancehall album we've been promised because summer is ending and I'm still waiting for a bop.
