As speculated and discussed on our forums back in March, Rihanna is back on the cover of Vogue. The Barbadian songstress more than deserves the honor as she’s yet to disappoint on the cover of the American fashion bible — and her fifth appearance for June 2018 is no exception. Shot by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Tonne Goodman, Rihanna poses under the warm Ibiza sunshine wearing Dolce & Gabbana in the captivating cover image.
Our forum members were in awe the moment the cover dropped. “Stunning! The best Rihanna cover for US Vogue. Their best in a long time too,” raved MON.
“Gorgeous! Love the use of blue type, it makes me think of their covers from the early/mid noughties. The backdrop is stunning as well and Rihanna just captivates you with the look in her eyes, she really knows how to work the camera,” LastNight acknowledged.

“Gorgeous, this will look even better at the newsstands,” said Miss Dalloway.
TeeVanity echoed the same enthusiasm, chiming in, “This is beyond words, absolutely beautiful. Rihanna is a dream on this cover, wow!”
“Rihanna is – by far – a more compelling presence in Vogue than most of the other models and celebrities that turn up on the pages of the magazine,” voiced tigerrouge.
Bluebanter agreed, saying, “Rihanna has to be the most photogenic celebrity. Say what you will about the hair and the Photoshop, this cover looks like it will sell. I love it.”
“This is stunning! Rihanna always delivers,” expressed gunsnroses.
