Rihanna Covers Italian 'Vogue' September 2009

Rihanna strikes a fierce pose in this supplement cover shot for the September 2009 issue of Italian Vogue.

This “Extreme Couture” cover was shot by famed photographer Steven Klein.

Kanye West‘s protege Mr Hudson just told in an exclusive interview that he would love to do a collaboration with Rihanna. I’ll have that interview transcribed ASAP and then share that with you guys.

    black beauty. she look like my girl grace jones.

  • Chuot

    I can’t recognize that is Rihanna. Ugly to me!

  • nicole

    its looks exactly Grace Jones which could be good or bad

  • mike

    It doesn’t even look like Rihanna. It’s like they airbrushed her stick thin. She has more curves than that.

  • **Jamie**



  • amara

    Is that Rihanna?
    I’ll say NOT cause if you’re on the cover of Vogue — even if it’s an international edition — you should at least be recognizable.

  • Esther

    yes is hot! damn! girl what a pose!

  • Shar

    Even Mushy Fartone can land Italian Vogue. There’s little cachet to that, plus she’s not even on the real cover, just a special insert.

  • jj

    This girls bad! That cover is hot! So you hating trolls backup!

  • Ice

    Not hot. She looks like a balding tranny.

  • hands

    Way too much makeup. It looks like they slathered
    war paint on her face.

  • 007

    It looks like they photoshopped her head onto someone else’s body.

  • deetz

    Rihanna looks like she’s going bald on that cover.

  • JJ

    unexpectedly bad.

    Looks like the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz

  • Next

    I don’t know why they made her hair up like that.
    It really emphasizes her high forehead.

  • guest

    The only reason I knew it was Rihanna is cause it has her name in big letters on the cover. Maybe that’s good?





  • Jen

    horrible. we get it Rihanna you are edgy lol

  • Hal2000

    I like it but agree, they made her look exactly like Grace Jones.
    Girl needs to develop her own style.

  • h.

    silly looking bald-headed ho holding a bucket.
    what a disaster.

  • groovelicious

    They overdid the photo-shop on that cover. She’s only 21.
    She shouldn’t need so much airbrushing.

  • Pearl

    That might be her head but I don’t think that’s her body.

  • Cisco

    Looks like Dionne Warwick channeling Grace Jones.

  • timber

    I would have never guessed that was Rihanna.
    Why didn’t they put her on the real cover?

  • Lil0ocH

    l like it: it’s so original ans she’s looking so f*** hot
    her hair not so bad but it’s go0d

    <3 Rihanna

  • whatever

    When did Rihanna start going bald? Even Jude Law has more hair on top.

  • ann

    meh.. too photoshopped. That doesn’t even look like her body.

  • sandie

    crazy, at least they should make her look like her and not some model’s body with a photoshopped face to match the skinny body, this people overdo everything, just like Self mag did with fat Kelly Clarkson, we are not fools.

  • t

    thats a man

  • k.

    It’s hot if your thing is fake b.s.

    What real woman honestly looks like that?

  • Wow!

    Man, back the F up! I mean, get the F outta Rihanna’s way! She’s too bada$$ in this photo. Absolutely love it!!!

  • Duh!

    @k.: I think that’s the point….moron! It’s supposed to be over the top. Get a clue!

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    @Chuot: no matter what the photo looked like you were going to hate on it because it’s rihanna. but damn, even with all the hate she’s still more popular than your favorite artist. LOL..

  • jess

    @Duh!: Sorry but this is beyond over the top. It doesn’t resemble Rihanna. It’s amazing what they can do with Photoshop these days.

  • lurking


  • miss dannielle

    She does resemble grace jones on this cover, its very artistic. Good for her getting back to normal stuff.

  • Wendy

    Jared this is a misleading title, damitt!!!

    I jumped with joy thinking she scored THE cover, just to find out its a freaking supplement cover, jesus!!!

    Anyway love it, but its a bummer she didnt get the main cover.

  • twizzie

    Why does everything about this young lady has to be negative, can any of you do it better? HELL NO!!!! Leave her alone.

  • http://Justjared style1

    I don’t like the cover shot she looks bad

  • *****

    ewwwwwwwwwwww .,,,,,,,Jared please STOP posting about BLACK PEOPLE!!!!!

  • craigc

    WOW she looks AMAZING!!! VERY VERY HOT!

  • Erica

    i don’t like it. i have nothing against her, but i don’t like it she doesn’t look like herself she’s super dark (nothing against my dark skinned sistas) and in real life she’s way lighter.. the outfit, hair, everything is just wrong.

  • zo

    Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Rhi Rhi is hot and ya’ll are just hatin!

  • João

    She looks fierce HOTT

  • MY Girl

    It does not look like her

  • xfiles

    Yep, the title is misleading. She didn’t land the title and agree with those who say it doesn’t look like her. Why do they photoshop people beyond recognition? Mind as well just use a model then.

  • pop86

    The cover is not surpose to like Rihanna. The photographer recreated a Grace Jones cover using Rihanna.

  • Robert

    Love it! It’s very Klaus Nomi meets Grace Jones….
    You go Rihanna!
