September issues are very important in the fashion world, and it’s finally here. Vogue’s big fashion special is a guide to everything you’ll want to buy and wear as a new season dawns.
As for the cover, “I always knew it had to be Rihanna,” writes Enninful of the September cover choice in his editor letter. “A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her.”
Also, Rihanna is the first black woman to front the fall fashion issue in the magazine’s history.
For the cover shot, Rihanna wore a Prada dress and gloves, Savage x Fenty bodysuit and a floral headpiece, and yes, made from actual flowers.
The images feature stunning makeup by Isamaya Ffrench, a slightly off-beat combination of Rihanna’s patent, glowing skin, dark-red lips and the unexpected element of those ultra-skinny penciled on eyebrows. Which got us thinking, are the thin eyebrows back in style? However, everything looks good on Rihanna.
“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.” – says Enninful.
When it comes to the art of transformation, Rihanna is the master of disguise.
What do you think of this cover? Do you think thin eyebrows are back in style?
