Rihaana Is First Black Woman To Be On UK Vogue Cover

Rihaana first black woman vogue

Rihaana is making history as she becomes the first Black woman to be on British Vogue’s cover. The singer is looking stunning in the magazine’s September issue. Rihaana was photographed by famous fashion photographer Nick Knight in a Prada dress complementing vintage flowery theme.

According to the Huffington Post, the British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful has personally styled the shoot. Edward wrote on his editor’s note, “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.”

He added, “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, takes a leaf out of her book and be yourself.”

Edward also explained the reason for recruiting the pop star as the cover girl for the 400-page issue. This particular issue is regarded as “guide to everything you’ll want to buy, wear, admire and be inspired by as a new season dawns”.

In the September issue, the 30-year-old openly talks up about embracing her body as it is. The popular singer told Vogue that she’s not sure why she has become a body icon, but that her curves might have something to do with it.

Rihanna remarked, “I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m ‘thick’ now. I don’t know. I’m about to get back into the gym and stuff, and I hope I don’t lose my butt or my hips or all of my thighs. I’ll lose some but not all. And I think of my boobs, like, ‘Imma lose everything, everything goes!”

The September issue of British Vogue will be available on newsstands on August 3.
