Rihanna has officially become the first back woman to grace the cover of British Vogue’s September issue. Like the publication’s U.S. edition, the September issue is the most prestigious edition of the fashion magazine. Rihanna shared the news via Instagram. She is wearing a hot pink Prada dress, Savage x Fenty gloves, a flower headdress and thin, drawn-on eyebrows a La Marlene Dietrich.

The editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, styled the cover and photo shoot, while Nick Knight served as photographer.  Edward wrote in his editor’s letter that he knew he wanted Rihanna on the cover for the magazine’s September Issue.

According to CBS News, the letter states, “I always knew it had to be Rihanna. A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her. No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental mood, you never lose her in the imagery. She is always Rihanna.”

British Vogue’s September issue hits the newsstands on Aug. 3.
