Judging by the photos, Mr. Enniful did not disappoint. Photographed by Nick Knight and styled by the EIC himself, Rihanna is draped in gorgeous pieces by Prada, Noir Kei Ninomiya, and Alexander McQueen.

Photographed by Billy Kidd and styled by the legendary Law Roach, Haddish is adorned in various pieces by Diane von Furstenburg, Valentino, and Cinq a Sept.

And for the news that sent shockwaves throughout social media, word on the street is that Beyonce’ is completely taking over the September issue cover for Vogue Magazine. According to a report by Huff Post Black Voices, the Grammy award-winning singer has been given “unprecedented control” over the cover. And on top of that, she’s even hired a Black, 23 year-old photographer named Tyler Mitchell, who would be the magazine’s first black photographer to shoot a September cover. Yeah, you read that right. A magazine that is 126 years old is finally going to have a black photographer on the September issue, but that’s a topic for another day. Anywho, there was speculation that Anna Wintour was doing this because this was going to be her final September issue as EIC. The CEO of Conde’ Nast, however, said that Anna ain’t going nowhere. Those weren’t his exact words, but you get where I’m going. If this is really happening, I am so anxious to see what the spread will look like. I’m sure it will be nothing short of “Flawless”.
