Rihanna: The Unstoppable Artist
Vogue November 2012
Article first published as Rihanna For American Vogue: November 2012 on Technorati.
Like out of an hybrid between her ‘We Found Love’ and ‘Where Have You Been’ videos and hints of the Vogue Glam-fantasy… Rihanna graces the november cover of the American edition, making it her second cover for one of the most influential – and not so respected – editions in the world of fashion editorials.
It can get really dull and frustrating to see the US Vogue making the obvious choices every single time: The biggest celebrities of the moment cover the magazine over and over and over again. But to be honest I kind of like this cover. It has that approachable vibe that Anna Wintour loves, but with an edge, strong fashion sense and sexiness that is very Rihanna… Only Rihanna can pull that off, and that is something that I love about her. Lady Gaga brings fashion edge, Katy Perry fantasy-hotness and Nicki Minaj… Well she is a fashion joke.
Opening with ‘the Rihanna’s VMA experience’, Jason Gay writes a very intimate profile of the PopStar. An interview-profile in which the ‘Diamonds’ singer talks about her personal life, friends, love, fans, career, the media, the future… nothing is off limits. An interesting article about one of the most talked about personas of the moment, everyone’s obsession is like Jason Gay himself says “Totally unfiltered, relentlessly productive, and obsessed-about by millions—the supernova-hot Rihanna is readying a new studio album and living a mile-a-minute life”. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the bajan Mega star delivers a great article for Vogue.com.
