Rihanna Gives Vogue Australia Its Best Cover in Ages

Magazines don’t have to do much to impress our forums. Just give us Rihanna and we’re sold. The global superstar has an extremely impressive track record on some of our favorite fashion glossies, including Allure, British Vogue, American Vogue, British ELLE — the list is endless.

You may find it hard to believe that Vogue Australia’s never had the pleasure, but the 11-time Vogue cover girl is finally making her long-awaited debut on the Aussie fashion bible for May 2019 (better late than never, right?). Photographed by Josh Olins and styled by Christine Centenera, Rihanna gives us a sublime cover image wearing an eclectic mix of Savage x Fenty (obvs) and Raf Simons.
