Cover Star: Rihanna For Allure’s ‘Best Of Beauty’ Issue
UNITED STATES — Grammy Award winning international pop star, fashion designer, style icon and entrepreneuress Rihanna covers Allure magazine‘s ‘Best of Beauty‘ issue.
The creator of Fenty Beauty is honored inside with the 2018 Breakthrough Award for Fenty‘s “rallying cry for inclusivity in beauty [that] was heard around the world,” according to a press release. This marks the first time that Allure has given a Breakthrough Award to any brand or product.
“Fenty Beauty disrupted an already crowded market, not with technology or scientific invention, but with ideology,” writes Allure‘s editor-in-chief Michelle Lee in her editor’s letter. “There was real thought put into what its inclusive shade range represented — and that sense of purpose was evident in every Instagram post, every marketing campaign, every event, every model casting. Nearly overnight, the paradigm had shifted.”
For this issue, the Bajan beauty was photographed by photographer Nadine Ijewere.
