Vogue April 2011: Rihanna

I’ve had a change of heart on my blog. I’m not going to simply give up or back down on it. What would be the point of giving in when I love it so much?  So, first order of business: here’s Rihanna’s Vogue cover and editorial. The cover is so Vogue US to me, slightly awkward, but better than what I was expecting. She looks wonderful in the Dolce & Gabbana gown and her hair doesn’t even bother me that much; the contrast is great. Her pose on the other hand could use some work. What both the cover and editorial show is that she’s definitely no model. The first shot of her bending back is great, but from there it turns mediocre and poorly shot and styled that the shots seem better suited as outtakes from an album cover shoot. What is wrong with Annie? Bring me models, please and thank you.

Two steps forward, three steps back, Vogue.
