Anna Wintour Refuses to Put Rihanna on Cover of Vogue Because of Nude Photos
Rihanna maybe working the catwalks of NYC, dodging in and out of recording studios around the world and attending acting classes, but don't expect her to cover the Holy Grail of fashion magazines - Vogue.
According to Star magazine, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour was thisclose to booking Rihanna for an upcoming cover -- which would be a great look, since that magazine rarely ever put African Americans on the cover -- but then that darn Chris Brown put a wrench in that plan when he allegedly released those nude photos and Anna passed.
The magazine reports:
It could have been Rihanna’s shining moment: the cover of Vogue!
But when the nude pictures hit cyberspace, her once-in-a-lifetime chance was gone in a flash. Rihanna and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had been talking for weeks about doing the cover and an inside spread, says a close friend of the singer, who adds that the two even chatted about it at the Met Costume Institute Gala on May 4.
“Anna told her Vogue absolutely loves her and really wanted to work with her. Rihanna was ecstatic!” But since the photos came out, says the friend, “Anna hasn’t returned any of her calls. Rihanna’s so upset!”
If this is true, then Rihanna has good reason to want to burn Chris' house down!
