Rihanna Named Vogue Italia’s Woman of the Year


Throw shade at Rihanna all you want, but this Bajan beauty will never stop winning.

Vogue Italia announced Rihanna as their Woman of the Year for the second year in a row yesterday (July 5). The editors reference her no-nonsense attitude, talent, and stunning looks  that make her the go-to choice for the honor once again:

“Independent, energetic,” reads their editorial statement. “The jewel in the crown of Jay-Z’s stable who helped her become such a huge success, the young Robyn Rihanna Fenty (only 23) is our woman of the year and not just by virtue of numbers and figures but also, and foremost, for her kind and fighting spirit. The same spirit that brought her from Barbados to the top of the music charts achieving a career which she has forged and mastered completely by herself (whose last move was to become the new ambassador for Armani).”

While Rih Rih has yet to begin her cover shoot with the well-respected fashion magazine, the singer can enjoy her reign on August’s Harper Bazaar.
