Rihanna covers the May 2020 issue of British Vogue magazine photographed by Steven Klein and styled by Edward Enninful.
On her NAACP Image Awards speech: “We can’t let the desensitivity seep in. How many of us in this room have colleagues and partners and friends from other races, sexes, religions?” she asked, before invoking some of the tragedies that have become closely associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. “When we’re marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jrs and the Atatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up!”
On launching Fenty Maison last year: “Being the first black woman to lead a luxury house, especially under LVMH, it was a huge deal to see him just encourage people to buy black, “I felt connected to it, and knowing why really made me feel like there’s no way I can ignore this.”
