Rihanna discusses her long-awaited upcoming album "R9," as she appears on VOGUE Magazine

Vogue released its November 2019 cover on Wednesday morning, starring none other than Rihanna. Photographed by Ethan James Green and clothed in a Fenty tulle coat (naturally), the singer, actress and entrepreneur posed for her sixth (!) cover for the fashion publication.

In the accompanying interview with Abby Aguirre, Rihanna discusses her long-awaited upcoming album "R9," which she describes as "reggae-inspired or reggae-infused," her love life ("I'm actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it's going really well, so I'm happy."); and, of course, her newly founded Paris-based maison with LVMH.
"I'm not the face of my brand, but I am the muse, and my DNA has to run all the way through it," says Rihanna. "I don't want anyone to pull up my website and think, Rihanna would never wear that."
Since its launch in May, Fenty has gone against the grain when it comes to luxury fashion brands. For starters, it's mainly sold through direct-to-consumer retail, though pop-ups have occasionally opened in major cities, like New York City and Paris. The business model also follows a monthly "drop" strategy because, Aguirre writes, "when Rihanna sees something she likes — which at the moment includes a lot of Balenciaga, which is getting on her nerves and giving her designer envy — she wants it now. Not in six months. Rihanna does not want to buy winter coats in August."
