Rihanna is the protagonist of the cover of Vogue Italia in June
Director Emanuele Farneti writes in his editorial: “In recent years we have tried to use our cover in many different ways: with photography or illustrations, or even without images. However, we had never asked the protagonist to do everything by himself: pose, photograph, choose what clothes to wear. If there was a right time for this new experiment, it could only be the DIY issue, and there couldn’t be a better subject than Rihanna – so many times on the covers, but never like this time in the version in which she and only she has chosen to show herself, without filters and mediations “.
