Allure is definitely spot on.
Pop star, Rihanna has been in the news recently and all for the right reasons. She recently debuted her fashion line which celebrated womanhood to the fullest and was critically acclaimed for diversity and inclusivity.
Now Rihanna’s being honoured by Allure’s 2018 Best of Beauty issue; her extraordinary music, her style, her beauty brand, her openness and her philanthropy are some of the reasons for the choice of the singer as the magazine cover.
Allure got 5 fans of the superstar, including model Slick Woods who put to bed a baby boy just after walking the runway for the Fenty fashion line at the NYFW18 and writer/talk-show host Ashley C. Ford to write an open letter to her.
“I met you during the Fenty Puma Season 2 show in Paris — it was my first time out of the country. I always thought your shit was made for me, and I wanted nothing more than to model for you, so hearing that I was cast in your show had me ecstatic. That you continued to use me was just surreal — business turned family real quick.
You introduced me to a more mainstream level of exposure. I was famous for all of the wrong reasons before. People loved the idea of Slick, but you gave me countless platforms to let people actually fall in love with who I am. You made inclusivity cool, and that’s revolutionary. Now people are putting money toward inclusion, rather than putting money toward a certain supremacy. It’s a beautiful switch in pace. You have my loyalty until the end of time. My gratitude for the growth, love, and support you’ve put in my life will never subside. You are a true angel and the most multifaceted, immortal boss I’ve ever met. I’m so thankful for you. But you knew that.”
