Our forums have been pretty excited about the release of Vogue‘s April edition, even with Adele’s blockbuster cover still on newsstands. The Cover Rumor Thread has been rife with debate about who might surface on Vogue‘s upcoming cover, with names like Emilia Clarke and Gwen Stefani being thrown around. Imagine our surprise when Rihanna‘s gorgeous new cover emerged today. Currently also on the cover of the British edition, Rihanna poses up a storm in a sequined Tom Ford dress as she emerges from the water (quite the trend this April) before the lens of photographic duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Members of our forums were captivated instantly. “Wow! One of their best covers in years!” hailed ThatGuyPaul the moment the cover came to light earlier today.
“Nice, definitely eye-catching! That Tom Ford dress looks good on her,” raved alonsoJonathan.
In the same frame of mind was LastNight, adding, “Stunning cover and feature, Rihanna always delivers. So great to see a full body shot on the cover and with such a beautiful backdrop.”
MON shared the same sentiments: “Oh this is stunning. Definitely outshines her U.K. cover. What I love about Rihanna’s American Vogue covers is that she turns out differently each and every time she’s on. Her 4 covers are of different moods and I like all.”
“I groaned when I saw the title, but seeing the cover, I have nothing bad to say. I totally love it. Colors, styling, pose, layout – everything works! And I like that there’s not that much text,” appreciated a pleasantly surprised MyNameIs.
“She slayed that sh!t. Pose b!tch! Loving the hair and the Tom Ford dress. Love it all,” declared a more than satisfied nataliaapple.
