Anything Rihanna does leaves me shook, so y'all KNOW I damn near threw my phone yesterday when she gave us a tease of her new September British Vogue cover. BELOVED, I wasn't ready.
Styled by Editor-in-Chief, Edward Enninful, and shot by fashion photographer Nick Knight, this isn't just any issue of Vogue — it's the freakin' September issue, which is a big deal. That's when we see upcoming trends, and of course, the cover star is extremely important.
Not only has Rihanna made history by becoming the first black woman to be featured on the cover of British Vogue's September issue, but this is also Enninful's first September issue. So this is just a Black, Black, BLACK fashion event and I am here for all of it.
We know when Queen Rih speaks, the world stops, and she definitely gave us a MAJOR key alert for dating. "I get a lot of boy-advice questions. I think a lot of people meet people and then they’re dating the idea of what the person could become, and that person never shows up and then they’re just mad disappointed," the cover girl said in the issue. "A person can always get better, they can always get worse, but you’ve got to be fine with what you met them as."
The Anti artist also addressed her new thickness that had the whole Internet like, "GOALS!" While she does have gym plans, she doesn't want to lose her curves. "I hope I don’t lose my butt or my hips or all of my thighs. I’ll lose some but not all," she said. "And I think of my boobs, like, 'Imma lose everything, everything goes!' But, you know, it comes with a price. You want to have a butt, then you have a gut."
Fashion AND facts?! We don't deserve you, Rih!
