Barbadian pop star Rihanna has been unveiled as the cover star for British Vogue’s September issue. Photographed by acclaimed fashion photographer Nick Knight and styled by Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the singer-songwriter is featured on what is considered the most important issue of the year.
This is Enninful’s first September issue as editor-in-chief after he was appointed as the first male editor of British Vogue last April in replacement of Alexandra Shulman after her 25 years in the role. The December 2017 issue was his first in charge.
The creative and colourful cover sees Rihanna in bright orange gloves, a fuchsia pink mesh collar with a bow detail and a floral headdress. Her eyebrows are drawn in on a thin line and her lips are strikingly coated with a deep red shade of glossy lipstick.
The edition, dubbed “the big fashion issue”, also includes interviews with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Sir Elton John.
