What used to be the most conservative and obvious Vogue is becoming day after day more interesting and courageous. First Lady Gaga, and now Rihanna.
As Emmanuelle Alt started her career as French Vogue editor in Chief, that should be the main subject for April, but Anna Wintour took over chosing Rihanna for the American Vogue cover.
It's not the first time Rihanna rocks a cover of Vogue. She was the cover of the Italian edition in September of 2009 shot by Steven Klein.
Her American cover shot by Annie Leibowitz marks her official rise as a fashion icon of this decade. Her rebel, sexy and outstanding look has been inspiring the teens and used as reference by the trend seekers of Fashion.
It has been a few years since Rihanna have been followed by celebrity magazines to show her funky outfits and use it as trend examples.
I must say that most of what the pop-diva wear is definitely a no-go in my wardrobe. Probably because her style is for another type of public. That does not change the fact that she is a trend setter. That's exactly what some fashion people have to realize.
Rihanna's new hairstyle seem to fit pretty good into the Fancyful-Goth stuff going on as I said in an older post. Coincidentally she has been shot by Annie Leibowitz for the American Vogue, and as Leibowitz also seems to follow the trend, I am not the only one that sees the similarity.
Well, it seems that I am already drinking the same stuff as Anna Wintour. Oh-oh!
