Rihanna and Beyoncé cover Vogue’s Met Gala special issue

Published

According to Vogue, the star of last week’s fancy-shmancy Met Gala was… a tie! Both Rihanna and Beyoncé grace the cover of this year’s Met Gala special edition, out now.

“When we fell upon the photo of Rihanna AND Beyoncé, we thought, ‘Bingo,’ ” says Chloe Malle, Vogue’s social editor and editrix of the 132-page annual glossy.

After leaving a celeb-filled after-party at the Standard Hotel at 1 a.m., Malle and five other sleepy-eyed staffers gathered at the Vogue offices at 4:30 a.m. to put together the book — and to gossip about the event. Conversation ranged from Rihanna’s abs (rock-hard) and Lauren Santo Domingo’s JAR diamond rose necklace (“major,” according to Malle) to whether model-of-the-moment Kate Upton’s barmaid-cum-flamenco dancer frock was a fashion no-no.

“No comment,” Malle says diplomatically, as she sorts through a mountain of photos from the evening.

“We have to include one of Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend,” she announces. “Anna is super into them and they’re in Thom Browne.”

Now, back to the gossip.

“Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss were palling around the whole night,” continues Malle. “And then Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez were taking selfies together during dinner.

“And there’s this great moment where the Givenchy table was just stacked with really impressive people. And at one point, everyone was standing up and chitchatting to one another, and Jay Z was sitting alone, just eating his chicken. It was awesome.” (Was this foreshadowing Jay’s elevator spat with sister-in-law Solange later that night?)

At around 6:45 a.m., the publicist whispers to production director David Byars that Anna Wintour is arriving at 7:30.

“She won’t really come at 7:30, will she?” he asks, visibly nervous. Byars looks to the table, which is covered in pics, carrot muffins and Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins.

“I’m going to move these,” he says.

Rihanna is on TIME’s list of the world’s most influential people

Published

Rihanna is on TIME Magazine’s “The 100 Most Influential People of 2018” list! Read the article written by Adele below or here:

“I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it. She is one year older than me, but I feel like she’s been around forever. The progression of her superstardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural. She burst onto the scene with the absolute banger that is “Pon de Replay” in 2005, so young and breathtakingly beautiful. But the first time it felt like she made everyone sit up was with “Umbrella.” It crossed her over to every platform and into everyone’s lives. It felt like she had truly arrived, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Even more, she has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours.

Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone’s taken a picture with a flash and you’re dazed for a few minutes after. But it’s also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn’t give a f-ck; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.”

On Instagram, Rihanna wrote:

“thank you for the acknowledgment @time …. and thank you @adele for your kind words! this was such a cool surprise!”
