Bad Gal Riri strikes again: the superstar just made history at the first black woman to grace the cover of British Vogue's mega-important September issue.

The singer-turned makeup mogul rocks bold makeup, with razor thin eyebrows and a bold burgundy lip. The makeup, the singer notes, is all Fenty Beauty. She's styled in a intricate floral headpiece, hot pink Prada, and orange gloves. The bold style choices, much like Rihanna's personal style, prove that the singer can pull off anything. In the editor's own words, "No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental the mood, you never lose her in the imagery. She is always Rihanna. There's a lesson for us all in that. Whichever way you choose to dress the new season, take a leaf out of her book and be yourself."

British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enniful said he knew he wanted Rihanna to cover the September edition, "A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her."

September is proving to be a months of first for black representation in the fashion industry, as Beyoncè will also be covering Vogue and reportedly hired the first-ever black photographer in Vogue's 126-year history.
