Rihanna on the cover of British Vogue

Let me start by saying I LOVE VOGUE. I subscribe. I read every single word. Sometimes twice. I keep all copies of Vogue. I store them in date order. I think you get the picture, I am a dedicated Vogue reader and I’m not ashamed to say it.

However…seeing the picture of Rihanna on the most recent issue did not make me happy. Now I have no problem with Rihanna – but why oh why did they make her look white and with a short blonde wig?!

Like the dress, like the blue background and Rihanna does rock – but all I can think of when I look at it is Beyonce’s latest album cover. What’s the relevance? Beyonce has blonde hair and incredibly fair skin on her album cover too! Rihanna, you are Bajan, curvy and better than this.

That’s all for now…did you not hear? Vogue arrived today. I may not agree with the cover image but I’m still impatient to read it cover to cover!
