Rihanna Vogue Magazine April 2011 Cover Debut

It took a while, but ravishing redhead Rihanna’s finally ready for her covergirl closeup on the front of the April issue of Vogue Magazine.

The esteemed publication chose the curvaceous “Rude Boy” singer as the cover girl for the 10th anniversary of its annual “Shape Issue.” The Bajan beauty with affinity for flamed-hued hair is pictured in a sheer floral dress which clings to her enviable curves covering artfully covering her modesty with the green blue and red flowers. Her bright red hair, which partially covers her face, is accentuated by bright red lips against a blue sunset background shot by celebrity photog Annie Leibovitz.

Ri’s Vogue debut has been a longtime coming.

Rihanna was devastated when a scheduled photoshoot with The Fashion Bible was canned on the heels of the songstress’ humiliating naked picture scandal. After face down — ass up flicks of a woman alleged to be the “Umbrella” hitmaker found their way online, Vogue editor Anna Wintour pulled the plug on Rih’s Vogue spot.

They don’t call her “The Devil In Prada” for nothin’….

“Anna hasn’t returned any of her calls. Rihanna’s so upset….She hopes the people at Vogue change their minds,” a Star Magazine spy squealed at the time.
