Rihanna continues to shatter glass ceilings as the multi-faceted mogul she is and proves that making your own rules in the industry pays off. With her November 2019 cover, Rihanna officially has the most U.S. Vogue solo covers of any Black women, wearing her own designs. We are witnessing histo-Rih in the making!
From the supermodels to the pop stars, the fashion Bible featuring Black women on their covers was, and still is, groundbreaking. Beverly Johnson made history as the first, Black woman on an American Vogue cover in 1974. Since then, Black women, like Naomi Campbell, Beyoncé, Michelle Obama, Oprah, and Zendaya, have continued to sprinkle their magic on the American version of the coveted magazine! With Rihanna scoring her sixth cover, we thought it was only right to honor all the Black women who came before her, and the ones who will surely come after her.
