Rihanna Covers Vogue Italia’s June 2021 Issue, Goes Braless
Vogue Italia, has just unveiled their June 2021 issue featuring famous singer, Rihanna
Rihanna, on Wednesday, took to her Instagram page where she shared the cover photo. She was featured wearing a completely sheer Maison Valentino gown and thigh-high strappy heels.
She also posted photos from inside the issue, in which she dons different patterned gowns as seen on her Instagram page.
“Rihanna By Rihanna!” Vogue Italia explained of the cover on social media. “When for our Do It Yourself issue Rihanna Did It Herself photographing and styling her own cover.”
The esteemed fashion publication added, “On set Rihanna played simultaneously the artist and the muse, the observer and the observed, the director and the character, experimenting on the fine line that exists between the two sides of an artist.”
The Editor in chief of Vogue Italian wrote: “In recent years we have tried to use our cover in many different ways: with photography or illustrations, or with no images at all. But we’ve never invited the featured person to do everything by themselves: to pose, take the photographs and choose the clothes to wear.
“If there was a right occasion for this new experiment, it could only have been the DIY issue. Neither could there have been a better protagonist than Rihanna – who has appeared on so many covers, but never like this time in the version in which she, and only she, has chosen to portray herself, without filters or any mediation.”
