Cover Loving: Rihanna Chanel-Clad on Vogue

Pic: US Vogue - April 2011

We’ve known for ages that Rihanna had finally scooped her first long-awaited American Vogue cover, as the singing superstar broke the news to everyone on her Twitter in January. But seriously, nothing could have prepared me for this amazing cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, Rihanna really is the perfect choice for the Shape issue.

Looking stunning in a sheer Chanel dress from the label’s pre-fall 2011 collection, I love that Rihanna is channelling Jessica Rabbit with her bright red hair and her sultry good looks.

If the cover is this good – I can’t wait to see what the shoot looks like inside.
