by | 1st August 2018

Pop star Rihanna made history by becoming the first black woman to appear on the cover of British Vogue‘s September issue.


Rihanna shared her cover photo on Instagram. She’s wearing a hot pink Prada dress, Savage x Fenty gloves, a flower headdress and thin, drawn-on eyebrows a la Marlene Dietrich.


The “Wild Thoughts” singer also posted photos from inside the issue, in which she dons different oversized floral headpieces.

For the beautiful photos, Rihanna is adorned in Prada, Fenty, Makota Azuma, Alexander McQueen, with boots by Gianvito Rossi.


In charge of her styling is the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful. Photography is by Nick Knight.


Enningul wrote in his editor’s letter that he knew he wanted Rihanna on the cover for the magazine’s September issue:


“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.”


Enninful also wrote that the two talked about diversity and Rihanna’s life as a diva for the accompanying profile.
