Rihanna takes the cover of British Vogue‘s September 2018 edition captured by fashion photographer Nick Knight. In charge of styling was Edward Enninful, who for the cover selected a Prada dress and gloves, and Savage X Fenty lace body. Beauty is work of hair stylist Yusef Williams, makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, and manicurist Jenny Longworth. Set design by Andrew Tomlinson.
“So here it is, Vogue’s big fashion special, our definitive 400-page guide to everything you’ll want to buy, wear, admire and be inspired by as a new season dawns. As you know, September issues are important in the fashion world, our largest and most lavish of the year and a real statement about what the coming months will bring. With this one being my first as editor-in-chief, I was determined it would be something special.
On top of providing an indispensable guide to the clothes and trends that will define autumn 2018, I wanted these pages to act as a marker for everything that is exciting and varied about the times we live in. Essentially, we are taking you on a journey – from our offices in central London, where I invited Bajan superstar Rihanna earlier this summer to talk diva-dom and diversity, to Royal Lodge in Windsor, where Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie welcomed Vogue into the heart of the Royal family.” – Edward Enninful, editor-in-chief of British Vogue.
