Vogue cover subjects don’t usually reveal that they’re about to be Vogue cover subjects to nearly three million people but that’s just what Rihanna did when she tweeted yesterday to her 2.8 million followers, “Just wrapped my first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz…Rah! #SEXY.” The tweet is now down, which would imply that Riri wasn’t really supposed to let her cover coup slip. Oh, well.
Regardless, we have word from a source that Rihanna is indeed slated to cover Vogue‘s April issue, following Lady Gaga. It marks Rihanna’s first cover for the magazine (she covered Vogue Italia’s September couture supplement).
Kristen Stewart (February), Lady Gaga (March), now Rihanna…we like where Vogue is headed with their cover models in the new year. Lots of first timers and diversity too.
