Rihanna US Vogue April 2011 issue image1.jpg

I am going to take a stab here and say that although this is only Rihanna's first cover for American Vogue - I doubt it'll be her last. Snapped by celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz, the pop princess adds a bright shot of colour to US Vogue's usual conservative covers with her wavy mane of fire engine red hair.

She appears on the magazine's 10th annual shape issue wearing a form-fitting sheer floral Chanel dress that seems almost sprayed on. Against an ocean backdrop, Rihanna channels Disney's The Little Mermaid. While inside the mag, she changes between short and long hairstyles - how versatile she is!
