Rihanna features on Vogue:‘My body is doing incredible things right now
Since revealing her pregnancy with A$AP Rocky in January, Rihanna has been unrepentant in her bright, fashion-forward maternity ensembles. She is now the cover star of American Vogue’s May issue, wearing a flaming red lace bodysuit and matching Alaïa gloves. Rihanna could give birth at any time, and she will do so in a grand fashion. She spoke extensively in the interview about her pregnancy style and how she plans to dress her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky. Since announcing her pregnancy in January, the Bad Gal hasn’t been shy about wearing crop tops, low-slung trousers, revealing gowns, and miniskirts. In March, she attended Paris Fashion Week wearing a slew of show-stopping ensembles, including a fully sheer Dior baby doll dress with nothing underneath except a black thong. Savage X Fenty’s underwear is on full display in the magazine, with nothing but an oversized Marc Jacobs coat to cover her up. It’s not uncommon for her to lay around the house in various stunning outfits, such as a sheer watercolor Jea
n Paul Gaultier Haute Couture by Glenn Martens dress while wearing a Boucheron jewelry.
The diva opened out in an accompanying interview with the magazine about her tumultuous few months and why she’s been accentuating her figure rather than hiding it. She stated, that when she found out she was pregnant, she thought to herself, “There’s no way she was going to go shopping in a maternity aisle.” I’m sorry—it’s too much fun to get dressed up, “she told Vogue. Because of the changes her body is going through, she is not going to let that part disappear. When Annie Leibovitz sat down to photograph Rihanna in an ornate Parisian hotel room during Paris Fashion Week, she captured the singer in various outfits, including a dramatic veiled Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown, a red Rick Owens cropped jacket and long skirt ensemble, and her own Savage X Fenty briefs.
The cover story comes less than three months after Rihanna shared her first public images as a pregnant woman, in which she and A$AP Rocky posed affectionately in Harlem as she donned a vivid vintage Chanel puffer coat that was unbuttoned from the bottom, low-slung trousers, and a Chanel chain belt. Since then, sutilizedlised each public appearance to showcase a new attention-grabbing ensemble. She also mentioned in the interview that she believes she can now say yes to more things because she knows things will be different on the other side of this. She had hoped for a miraculous transformation but remained unchanged. None of the dials have been lowered. Rihanna stole the show for the entirety of fashion month, arriving at the Gucci show in Milan wearing a latex crop top and an oversized purple fur coat, followed by Dior in Paris in a sheer black lace slip and knee-high patent leather boots.

The two music artists left many of their luxuries behind to go on a road trip together from Los Angeles to New York. she explained, A$AP Rocky became her family during that time. She cooked the food on this little janky grill she bought from Walmart. she loves the simple things but also the grand adventures she feels as though she can do anything with him by her side.
Though Rihanna’s due date is unknown, she revealed last month to Elle that she was already in her third trimester. According to Vogue, she hopes to “redefine what is considered ‘decent’ for pregnant women.” The singer, actress, entrepreneur, and recent Forbes billionaire graced the cover of Vogue’s May issue, along with her baby bump. The spread, which follows her 2011 American Vogue debut, also features the soon-to-be mother wearing Marc Jacobs, Manolo Blahnik heels, Rick Owens, Jean PaulJean-Paul, and, of course, Savage X Fenty. While the 34-year-old superstar is a well-known fashion icon, Rihanna told Vogue that she and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are equally yoked in the style department, describing their style as “iron sharpening iron. People don’t easily escape the friend zone with her, she explained in the cover story published Tuesday. And it took her a while to get over how much she knows about him and how much he knows about her, because both parties are well aware of the trouble, they can get themselves into. They are beginning on a new pter in their lives – motherhood — together. While Rihanna and Chris were not planning on having a baby, they weren’t averse to the idea either. On the exam, it was there. Instead of wasting time, she beckoned him in and showed him right then and there. Their quest began the next day when she arrived at the doctor’s office.
