Rihanna’s Vogue Cover Is Ready to Ship

Rihanna Vogue Magazine Cover April 2011

So she was so excited she tweeted about it when she wasn’t supposed to, Rihanna’s Vogue cover has finally been leaked, and my thoughts are not so rosy. I believe she might have been channeling Jessica Rabbit (or maybe even Beyonce), but this Vogue cover has nothing on the Elle cover from last July. As a matter of fact, that Elle cover convinced me to subscribe to Elle, this Vogue cover would not do the same. An awkward pose masks the Bajan beauty’s usual sex appeal, even with the sheer curve hugging gown, the cover is just too awkward. I’m all for Rhi Rhi exploring the flower side to her Reb’l Fleur thing, but this cover does neither. It’s too ladylike for edgy Rihanna, and too coquettish for the girl next door end of the spectrum.  I’ll leave my final judgement for when my copy arrives and I catch a glimpse of her editorial pages, but as of right now – I’m just not feeling it.
