Rihanna just broke a 102-year-old record.
According to HuffPost, the singer-beauty modul-philanthropist is gracing the cover of British Vogue’s September issue, and in doing so, is becoming the first black woman in the publication’s entire 102-year history to occupy the spot.
Styled by the glossy’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful and photographed by fashion photographer Nick Knight, HuffPost says Rihanna took her place on British Vogue‘s cover wearing a “a pink tulle Prada dress and neon-orange gloves from her Savage x Fenty collection,” while also wearing only makeup products from her Fenty Beauty brand.
With the 400-page September issue the barometer of the upcoming season’s impending fashion trends, HuffPost says Rihanna’s cover is hinting at what may be a major trend: pencil-thin eyebrows, which she shows off on her cover photo.
Enninful explained the decision to place Rihanna on the magazine’s cover as one he always saw coming.
“I always knew it had to be Rihanna,” he said. “A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her.”
Amen to that.
