Who had Rihanna in the pool?

Rihanna Vogue March 2014

I actually think this cover is great, which means I’ve liked every single one of their covers since December, which means either I have some kind of wicked brain fog or Vogue has started picking their covers via a different means than usual. I think it helps that her face looks great here: very little makeup, simple hair, lively expression. Combined, especially with those light-wash jeans, it almost makes this look like it could have been a photoshoot (with a proper model, not a celebrity) from the mid-90s, and there’s something refreshing about that. Of course she’s wearing Marc Jacob’s Farewell to Louis Vuitton, but that seems right for this exact occasion. Keep it up, Vogue.
