Rihanna covers ELLE Magazine: photos + interview



Rihanna is the cover girl of the October issue of ELLE Magazine USA. She revealed the cover on Twitter and Instagram today (September 7).

And guess what’s featured? Rihanna’s very own Fenty Beauty.

Ri also shared an amazing behind the scenes video. Watch below or here.


In celebration of Rihanna’s sixth cover (and the global launch of Fenty Beauty by Rihanna), ELLE turned the tables and invited some of her famous friends and fans—Tyra Banks, Eminem, April Bloomfield, Zac Posen, Pharrell Williams and more—to share the questions they were dying to ask the global megastar:

David Copperfield, Magician: I’m not kidding, this is a real offer: I can make you disappear and reappear anywhere in the world. Where do you want to go, and why?

Rihanna: Ten minutes before I lost my virginity…and I’m holding you to that offer. LOL.

Laverne Cox: You’ve had so many iconic fashion moments and take so many risks. The iconic CFDA Awards Adam Selman dress in 2014—what gave you the courage to take that risk that was so perfect and elegant yet daring?

Rihanna: Dear Laverne, I took advantage of my titties before they go south. I saw my window, and I took it.”

Plus, she offers her insight on beauty as the brain behind her new makeup line:

ELLE: When did you first wear lipstick?

Rihanna: Lipstick always got me in trouble. Whether it was at home as a kid, or my early teenage years in my career, I always had the urge to wear it. So I broke all those rules. Now lipstick is like my li’l secret weapon!

ELLE: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done/tried for beauty? Would you do it again?

Rihanna: A corset! I’d do it again, though. I’d wear it every day if I could make it out alive!

For more of Rihanna’s answers to questions—from A$AP Rocky, Olivia Wilde, Danielle Steel, among others—pick up ELLE’s October issue, on newsstands September 19.

The United States is not the only country that will have Rihanna on the cover of ELLE. Check out the UK cover below and a different Portuguese cover that also leaked.

The 2018 Grammy Awards (Pics + Videos inside)




The 60th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by James Corden, took place in New York City for the first time in 15 years. Rihanna was not only nominated but also listed as one of the performers.


She won for Best Rap/Sung Performance with Kendrick Lamar for “Loyalty” and thanked Kendrick during her part of the acceptance speech.

“Thank you Kendrick for giving me this incredible opportunity to be on such a great record,” she said. “I love this record. I’m honored to do this with you. Congrats, you deserve this one.”


Rihanna’s Grammy dresses are always some of her most memorable fashion moments. From her crop top in 2017, to the voluminous pink confection in 2015, her risk-taking style never disappoints. And she’s keeping that trend alive with her 2018 Matrix-inspired trench coat.

Rihanna may have skipped the 2018 Grammys red carpet, but she still delivered a stop-and-stare style moment when she accepted the first award of the night alongside Kendrick Lamar in a high-shine chocolate-colored Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture patent leather trench coat, worn as an off-the-shoulder dress with matching knee-high slouched boots and gloves (both also by Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture).

Rihanna sparkled with energy while she performed her hit “Wild Thoughts” alongside DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller during the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The songstress lit up the room, as she showed off her killer dance moves in a fringe dress with a red flower pinned in her long locks.

a day my people and I will never forget! all the lessons, running around barefoot, nosey neighbors, braiding hair on the step, playing in the cemetery, walking to the beach, rum shop karaoke keeping the whole street awake til 4am ("only the lonely" by Roy Orbison is playing in my head as I type this) , stealing Sammy pomegranates from his tree, begging my mother to let me walk to Jan's shop cause she had American snacks, selling plastic/glass bottles to Peter so I could buy those American snacks, getting my hair hot combed for Harvest at church, doing my homework on my front step while Miss Hyacinth yells "ya gon get belly hurt from dat cold step" across from her veranda, watching iFE walk past with her dreads dragging on the floor like a couture gown, all the times I thought Melissa came to hang out with me, turns out she was dating my next door neighbor all along, rushing to do dishes when my mother's high heels start hitting the pavement as she gets off the bus from work……right here on this street! WESTBURY is more than a community, we're family!!! Thank you for all that you've poured into my life and the woman I am! It takes a village, and I'm glad my village was you!!!! To God be the Glory!!!! #RiRiDrive
