VOGUE: Just as important as the Met Gala theme reveal—next year’s show is titled “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” — is the announcement of Anna Wintour’s cohosts. Taking over the duties carried out last time around by Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Gisele Bündchen, and Tom Brady are three women who are as talented as they are glamorous: Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace.

Rihanna is a Met Gala all-star: No one gets more into the spirit of things than @badgalriri. Consider the yolk-color Guo Pei gown she wore to the 2015 event that not only put the Chinese designer on the map, but also blew up the memosphere. For anyone other than Rihanna, that look would have been a tough one to top, but she managed, arriving at this year’s Comme des Garçons exhibition in a fresh-off-the-runway look by the woman of the hour, Rei Kawakubo. By now, we know to expect the unexpected from Rihanna—even an impromptu performance, like the one she gave with Kanye West in 2009.

Last week, Vogue Arabia shared a 10-second-clip on Instagram, in which Rihanna faced off with the infamous bust of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti. “Thousands of years apart, two iconic women will finally meet in the pages of Vogue Arabia,” read the caption. The clip quickly went viral. Today, the Vogue Arabia Arabic and English covers for the hotly-anticipated November issue have been revealed, and are already spreading rapidly.

Lensed by renowned photographer Greg Kadel (who also photographed Halima Aden for Vogue Arabia’s June issue), the superstar singer appears on the cover wearing Gucci paired with a custom Faeth Millinery-designed headpiece in a stylish homage to Queen Nefertiti.

“We are dedicating the issue to strong and dynamic women who are changing the world,” begins Vogue Arabia Editor-in-Chief Manuel Arnaut in the editor’s letter. “Rihanna, our cover star, is one of them. Not only is she one of the most successful pop icons ever, shaping the entertainment industry with her powerful tunes and unique sense of style, she is also an advocate for diversity.”

Indeed, for fashion’s biggest rule-breaker, inclusivity is crucial to her brand. The popstar unveiled a line of cosmetics, Fenty Beauty, last month that featured a range of fine-tuned foundations, highlighters, blushers, and a lip gloss that worked for each and every skin tone. “I don’t want women to say, ‘That’s cute, but it only looks good on her,’” Rihanna noted during the time of the launch. Her campaign featured hijab-wearing model Halima Aden as well as Duckie Thot.

Echoing the words of Arnaut, how exactly does one portray in a fresh way one of the most photographed women in the world? “Celebrity stylist Anya Ziourova had the answer, and during one of our many Skype meetings, she revealed that the pop star has a real adoration for Queen Nefertiti, and has her iconic bust tattooed on her ribcage,” he says.

The singer’s reverence for the legendary Queen is unsurprising. Ruling in Ancient Egypt next to her husband Pharaoh Akhenaten almost 3,500 years ago, Nefertiti still reigns as one of the most beloved figures from the Middle East. Known for her unmatched beauty — Nefertiti means “the beautiful one has come” — the Ancient Egyptian queen, who had a very active role in the country’s political sphere, is the picture of women’s empowerment.

Rihanna follows the other ground-breaking women to appear on the cover of Vogue Arabia, including Gigi Hadid, Halima Aden, Bella Hadid, and October’s special issue featuring four iconic Arab models: Afef Jnifen, Farida Khelfa, Kenza Fourati, and Hanaa Ben Abdesslem.

The magazine is available on newsstands on Nov 1.

The successful FENTY x PUMA by Rihanna is a newcomer to the list of nominations in this year’s Urban Luxe Brand category at the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards.

Votes were cast by 2,000 members of the fashion industry across disciplines that include media, retail, communications and photography, with the voting body covering 38 countries.

“We are delighted to announce the nominees for the 2017 Fashion Awards,” says Nadja Swarovski, member of the Swarovski executive board and principal sponsor of the awards. “These fantastic talents are the very best of the global industry… Young designers are the heartbeat of our business, and it is up to all of us to foster and champion their vision.”

In 2016, The Fashion Awards underwent a rebrand, losing the “British” from its title in a bid to make the awards more international.

The Fashion Awards is a key fundraiser for the BFC’s education foundation. Last year, the event raised £700,000 (about $920,000 at current exchange), of which £300,000 ($400,000) was used to support young British talent through scholarships. The remaining funds were allocated to Newgen, the scheme pioneered by the BFC in 1993 to nurture and support emerging talent by offering new designers mentoring as well as a platform to show at London Fashion Week. In the last academic year, the programme awarded over £100,000 ($130,000) across 12 BA and MA scholarships. The BFC will look to broaden the variety of scholarships available in the year ahead. This year, Swarovski has pledged £300,000 to the BFC’s education programme in advance of the fundraiser.

Watch the full interview above, starting at 4:16.

Let’s get one thing straight — Rihanna is more than a pop icon. “I have long-term goals in fashion, but not so much with any one brand. You just never know what’s going to happen,” said the superstar during her in-depth talk with Vogue’s Hamish Bowles at the Forces of Fashion conference.

Rihanna’s dedication shows; with Fenty x Puma, Fenty Beauty and collaborations with Manolo Blahnik, Stance, and Christian Dior, she’s built a fashion empire that extends far beyond merch. As a businesswoman, she’s proved herself capable of being on the pulse of what consumers want and willing to take creative risks others might shy away from. At today’s panel, the bad gal explained the history of her relationship with the industry and why she’s only just getting started.

“I enjoy fashion that’s the thrill and the challenge,” she shared with Bowles. “You can only keep growing and evolving [with each collection] I take it seriously, I have a lot of respect for this industry.”
