    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.

    Of course that Mert & Marcus Ibiza shoot with Rihanna was for Vogue US.

    I have to say though, isn't it weird that Rihanna is the one releasing the cover before Vogue? And a week before Vogue's usual release date at that? (Perhaps to create anticipation for the MET Gala?) And why are there no coverlines except Rihanna's? And her Instagram description says "Read my full cover story at VOGUE.com", but it's not there.

    I'm glad it's a literal summer shot, but the hair. Crikey, the hair is just too much and looks so unnatural. Can't deny she looks rather sultry here.

    This was probably the copy sent to Rihanna so I'm keen to see just how many coverlines they'll use. They've been toning it down over the past few months, which is great.

    5th Vogue cover, God!

    EDIT: @Dodencebt - Maybe she jumped the gun. As it is it's weird she's the one releasing the draft because no other celebs normally does this sort of thing.

    Gorgeous, this will look even better at the newsstands. But wow at her releasing this already, i don't think we ever got their cover so early.

    I like that it´s an outdoor shot and her face looks gorgeous but imo, the hair is waaay too big (and it doesn´t look very healthy) and the styling is on the cheap side...

    I like that they kept some of the humidity in her hair... it makes the shot more atmospheric... likewise with the styling. It all gives me beach vibes which I’m really in the mood for right now. Even tho I seem to be on permanent Rihanna overload, even without yearly albums she never goes away. Strike while the iron is hot I guess. All her projects seem like money grabs, however, I see no real passion in anything she does.

    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.

    ^ That is so true! Don't listen to her music, or really follow her, and she can certainly be overexposed when it comes to covers, but damn!! I will take her stunning photogenic face over Kendall's, Gigi's.etc, or women like Amal, who get to be on the cover just because of who they married!

    I think she was allowed to release this early because of The Met Gala, which goes to show how idiotic that May cover choice, truly was!

    WOWWWWW LOVE THIS !!!! US Vogue knows how to come with the goods from time to time, the cover is stunning and the editorial is also super cool.

    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.
