Rihanna’s Couture Cover

As previously reported, Rihanna does indeed have an editorial feature in the just released September edition of Italian Vogue. However, the singer does not land the cover- at least not of the magazine itself. Instead, Rihanna will be featured on the cover of the magazine’s couture supplement, which they release every year. The cover photo was shot by famed photographer Steven Klein and features the singer clad in a Valentino dress and what looks to be some sort of “Sasha Fierce” type arm.

Peep the cover below- and I am sure better quality images will be released soon.

Btw, want to see who actually did land the cover? Well, just look below.

Lol- three times. A total Riri cover would have been so much better.

  1. i dont think she should have been on the cover. im glad that italian vogue continues to use actual models and not “superstars” i think all magazines esp fashion related ones should go back to models, so that they may do their actual job

  2. Yeah Vogue shot themselves in the foot – how does the supplement cover look a thousand times better than the actual cover? SMH!

    Riri looks hawt!

  3. I agree with u KSH Rihanna should been on the cover… I like her edgy hair/style and getting her sasha fierce on… But yea Ri Ri is sexy

  4. Rihanna’s cover is hot, but it doesn’t look real. This isn’t like those janet pics are they?

  5. Rihanna’s cover looks better but not by much. Too much seems to be going on and I don’t like that it’s in black and white. That Sasha Fierce arm as Stephanie called it isn’t cute either. Basically, it’s just all too over the top for my taste. I was expecting something spectacular and over the top, but not weird. I hope the inside shots are better.

  6. i know someone would talk about some sasha fierce nonsense about this cover…like she copyrighted wwearing metal or steel or watever the heck it is…shmd

    ri looks hot and fierce as usual u go girl

  7. Gorgeous. This girl could be a super model. Even on a bad day, she looks like she is coming straight off the runway.

  8. I love the avant garde. I think she looks extremely powerful & elegant. She was made for editorial work. (I also love the actual cover of sasha pivovarova & co.)

  9. rihanna got a movie coming out called personal protection cant wait we know beyonce cant act but rihanna might do better

  10. OMG I just noticed something…that “sasha fierce” gauntlet is a bucket! She’s throwing water in the air lol

  11. When I first saw the image I thought it was a tribute to Grace Jones! Interesting.

  12. i know someone would talk about some sasha fierce nonsense about this cover…like she copyrighted wwearing metal or steel or watever the heck it is…shmd

    If you thought ppl were going to mention Sasha Fierce then that means you saw the connection as well.

  13. And I don’t like the cover. It’s utterly foolish. Steven Klein could have done better.

  14. Rihanna keeps taking “EDGE” to a whole nother level

  15. Hotness!!!!!!!!!!

    LMFAOOOOOO

    How is it that Rihanna looks fierce without proclaiming to be fierce?!!!!!!

    Because she’s a natural!
    LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  16. @JBL

    if the stans take it there, then they better give

    Kylie Mynogue (sp?) credit.

    LOL!!!

  17. WHen i think of Rhianna i first think of her beauty and Chris giving her the smackdown but that’s it. I still don’t know the real Rhianna. She’ like a fashion manequin. Manufactured.

  18. I don’t think it’s our place as consumers to “know the real” (insert celebrity) …Ithat’s the problem with some of us IMO…we confuse internet accessibility with a right to personal relationships w/these ppl.

  19. We can ALL be mannequins with the right amount of makeup, hair, costuming and ‘robotic arms and gloves’. We can ALL be FIERCE. I love this cover.

  20. M: Maybe i should say she seems bland put it like that. Me personally, you become more appealing as an artist if you have a greart personality to match. you can get a glimpse of people in interviews, even through their songs. She doesn’t stand out 2 me, besides her physical. Maybe what i got from her through her songs, videos, interviews she seems blah blah. Still stunning tho, must admit.

  21. SO I take no one here saw the “Sasha Firecre arm” on Kylie Minogue (sp) years ago.

    Ri somehow managed to top herself. She’s the ONLY current chic who can successfully pull off cutesy/commercial and edgy/haute coture with ease.

  22. I didn’t see Rockon’s comment before posting. I see someone else here spotted the Kylie connection.

    JBL, you sound like a typical… aah never mind LOL!!!

  23. I don’t like it. Her arm isn’t the only thing reminiscent of sasha fierce here, its the makeup too. I do wanna know how she is leaning back yet thrusting water forward…and why? This reminds me of the movie Zoolander with Ben Stiller, I was honestly hoping that photo was a joke.

  24. OMG…this girl cannot even speak english…her accent is horrible…How many times have u heard this chick give an interview!!! Beyonce can act 10 times better than this chick… As far as the cover goes, it is not that great..she looks more like an alien. I am not feeling this whole gothic thing..she looks more like a broke version of Grace Jones

  25. OMG Rihanna looks just like Grace Jones in that pic. I couldn’t figure out who she looked like at first, but then it hit me, Stranjay or whatever from Boomerang.

  26. @RUSERIOUS: I totally understand what you’re saying…thanks for the explanation.

  27. OMG……you said Beyonce can act 10 times better? Wow. Really? How can an interview with her Bajan accented words even be compared to Beyonce’s “acting”?

  28. why the hell do u ppl keep talkiin about beyonce…i mean is she THAT much of a threat to rihanna…prolly sooo.. this is a post about rihanna’s ugly photo so just say watever it is u have to say about the photo or her and go…i dont know how we cum from vougue.. to sasha fierce to BEYONCE”S ACTING SKILLS. plz cut the crap u ladies r better than that

  29. I can’t believe this went to print. As a designer, I can see so many things wrong with it. It looks like an extremely ROUGH draft. Also, wtf @ this comment:

    “this girl cannot even speak english…her accent is horrible…How many times have u heard this chick give an interview!!! Beyonce can act 10 times better than this chick…”

    1) Rihanna’s NOT an actress and hasn’t expressed interest in being such.

    2) There’s nothing wrong with her English. If you don’t like her accent then just say that. I find it cute.

  30. EVERONE Rihanna is the hell ugly she has no class . Why because she still wants chris brown . Why because that was all a trick because she was losing all her hype . She did not know that Howllywood have it girls. your even in our out lol i know its corny but its ture.

  31. And in the pic she looks like grace jones if she was a man with a big forehead . NO HATING JUST TELLING THE FACTS…

  32. she looks like grace jones if she was a man with a big forehead

    “if she was a man”

    “with a big forehead”

    ————-

    I think you just complimented Rihanna 🙂

    Grace Jones was known for her androgynous look (i.e. looking like the woman that she is OR LIKE A MAN).

    Grace Jones has a forehead too.

    No hating indeed. Your statement was pure Rihanna love! 🙂
