Riahanna Covers Elle Magazine 6/2008

As always, she's a lovely young woman but I hope the photos in the spread are nicer than the cover choice. Poor girl is crushed between all that pink and black text. Also, by her smirk and the way she's posed I would guess that she just let one rip.

Looking at that Elle cover reminds me of why I stopped subscribing to and looking at fashion magazines, period. Every single one of them, the same recycled subjects, just worded differently, and slapped on a different cover each month. I can't believe it took me several years to realize that. **rueful chuckle**

Also, I can't remember the last time I saw a fashion model on the cover of a fashion magazine. These days, it's just reality "stars", actresses, and singers. Not breaking news, I know, but just something that popped into my head right now.

re: Rihanna - I don't get her appeal. I mean, I liked her "Umbrella" song, but there's nothing about her look or her personality that interests me. "Flesh covered robot" are the words that come to mind whenever I see a picture of her, or see her name mentioned somewhere.

She looks like she was in mid "fierce walk"

I think Rihanna has tried as a musical artist to step up her style game and not be a part of the whole recycled RnB diva scene. In that respect I can understand her as a cover choice even tho I many times feel like you do lapetitedive (re not enough models on covers)

Hi and thank U for the visit and the comment on my blog!!!
Well, I really love your blog!
About Rihanna she's so beautiful, a modern girl, with her own personality, I think she is outside what she is inside!
See U next!

I wasn't crazy about the smirk either. A picture of the girl on any random day is more fierce than this!

The dress is cute , the pose... not so much. I like Rhianna, I think she is different from the cookie cutter singers that are around now. I just hope she doesn't get all caught up in the industry (surgeries, etc.)

The inside pics are Fab but the cover is having some spacing issues!

That cover's pretty wack to me! Rih' nose isn't that big. Bad lighting. and I'm also tired of seeing lazy drapings converted into dresses comme the cover dress! Like someone got jacked and thought 'Hmm, this rumple on my bust forms a nice design!' Anyway...
