Rihanna is the star of Vogue’s big fashion special, the coveted 400-page September that covers everything from what to buy, wear, admire and be inspired by as a new season dawns.
In this issue, the Barbadian queen talks about her career in music and fashion. And writing about why the pop star was chosen for this issue, here’s what Vogue had to say:
“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.”
