Rihanna is a multi-dimensional artist and entrepreneur, and although she intends on not releasing new music any time soon – her momentum by building her empire in the fashion, hair, and skincare realms is fulfilling enough.
With an ethereal beauty, the Bajan Pop-icon illuminates each photograph with fierce, self-confidence, and her signature bra-less, laced undergarments, high, strappy heels and sporting her signature pixie cut hairstyle for Vogue Italia’s ‘Do it Yourself’ June issue.
It is no surprise that Rihanna obtained creative control on the photoshoot as being the director and styling her own cover.
Plus, it wouldn’t be in Rih’s distinction that she made history, being the second singer (aside from Madonna) to achieve “The Big Four,” in Vogue history. She covered: American Vogue, British Vogue, Vogue Paris, and now Vogue Italia.
The Vogue Italia issue will be available for purchase on June 4.
