“I’m so honored to be on the cover of your first September issue with British Vogue @edward_enninful Thank you for considering me!, RiRi commented on Instagram.
This is the first issue for new Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful, and he says the Ocean’s Eight star was the only choice for the cover.
“I always knew it had to be Rihanna,” Enninful says. “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,” he continues. “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.”
In the cover shot, Rihanna wears a Prada dress and gloves, a floral headpiece, her own Fenty Beauty makeup, and her own Savage x Fenty lace bodysuit.
Rihanna also commented on Instagram how thrilled she was to shoot with one of her favorite photographers, Nick Knight. “I finally got to work with @nick_knight for the first time! Legend,” she wrote.
The September issue of British Vogue hits newsstands Friday, August 3.
