For their September 2009 issue, Italian Vogue went with the oh so chic and edgy, Rihanna. The issue is called "Extreme Couture" starring Rihanna and was shot by world famous photographer Steven Klein in NYC. Rihanna to me looks like a young Grace Jones on the cover posing in a VALENTINO dress. Grace Jones is known for her over the top clothes and short hairdo. Rihanna started a trend with her funky hair and as she progressed in the music industry so did her look. Rihanna's rocker style is extreme and edgy, which is fitting for this issue.
