Rihanna photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue US April 2011 (Twitter)
okay. wow. she looks amazing. the pose isn’t the best, but the colours are stunning.
i totally agree! whats up with her pose..
This is no longer a fashion magazine. Vogue US is dead to me.
Um, vogue has been putting celebrities on their covers for a very long time, they are actually famous for doing it first amongst all other fashion magazines. Rihanna is probably amongst the most fashionable pop-tarts. She is always ahead of the curve in terms of style, you “know-it-all”.
The pose is not perfect for a VOGUE cover, but the edito should be nice =)
Silly pose, but I love how her hair looks here, it’s a bit Little Mermaid and a bit Jessica Rabbit.
OMG i’m embarrassed to say this but this is really gorgeous.nice colors.
BRING BACK MODELS FOR MAGAZINE COVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Modern day Jessica Rabbit :) Rihanna is just HOT HOT HOTT!!!
rihanna is rocking that dress
Rihanna is an extraordinary musical talent and entertainer. Let’s put that out there, first of all. Nevertheless, the continued commercialisation of US Vogue seems such a debasement.
A model can wear this dress, and strike this pose, so much better.
“Rihanna is an extraordinary musical talent and entertainer”
The edit is horrible. A wasted opportunity..
her pose is awful, but i like that ‘little mermaid’ feeling & colours
Not a VOGUE pose..Looks like she is is surfing, but RiRi still looks Stunning..Love her hair, make-up, and dress !!
Blergh, even brazilian Vogue is better than this. I agree with baboonbutt, Vogue US is no longer a fashion magazine. They desperately need a new fashion editor.
I love the color but they’ve used that background so many times. Also, I of course wish there was a model on the cover. But I do love the bright red hair.
HER RED HAIR NEVER LOOKED BETTER! I actually think this is a strong cover for an already commericalized fashion magazine like Vogue us…relatively…remember Halle Berry’s September Issue cover…that’s commcercial and beyond…
her face is ugly too…
I don’t like this cover
Very tastless what is with that pose! Vogue used to be the classiest magazine around… Rihanna hardly says class and this photo is extremely unflattering.
I love the dress
Well, this is why I did not renew my subscription.
If that was abbey lee with the same cover a lot of you would be praising it. so fake.
