Rihanna has landed her fourth Vogue cover to date with the April 2016 cover story.
Riri serves effortless life, dripping in Tom Ford sequins on her latest cover.
We also find out about the inspiration behind her successful Fenty collection for Puma:
“I always wanted to do what my brothers were doing,” she said. “I always wanted to play the games they played and play rough and wear pants and go outside.” She added: “Women feel empowered when they can do the things that are supposed to be only for men, you know? It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating, and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that, too.”
Her partnership with Dior (there’s rumors of sunglasses collaboration) :
“I was already proud to be a Dior woman, but to be a black Dior woman and the first: It did something else for me.”
Even the media’s determination to pit her against Beyonce:
“Here’s the deal,” she says. “They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
But what was probably the best takeaway was that Rihanna’s biggest regret in life has to do with her CFDA gown:
“I just liked it better without the lines underneath. Could you imagine the CFDA dress with a bra? I would slice my throat. I already wanted to, for wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled. That’s the only regret I have in my life.” Wearing a thong that wasn’t bedazzled is your greatest regret in life? “To the CFDA Awards. Yes.”
