Since launching in March with a captivating Gigi Hadid cover, Vogue Arabia has continued to make its mark at the newsstands. The magazine has delivered gorgeous covers featuring Imaan Hammam, Pooja Mor and Halima Aden, and celebrated a handful of Arabian women on the October issue last month. For November 2017, global superstar Rihanna is unveiled as the title’s new cover girl while channeling Egyptian queen Nefertiti on two unique covers photographed by Greg Kadel.
Unfortunately, some of our forum members felt let down by the outcome. “I feel like magazines always do too much with Rihanna… she’s such a beauty that a natural shot of her would be so much more striking than her in this costume. Although I don’t mind the makeup, they should’ve of just stripped everything else off. Had she been bare-shouldered I would have loved this,” critiqued A.D.C.
