While not yet officially launched, a fan stumbled upon an early new stand issue revealing Rihanna is the cover star for Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s May 2019 issue.
Celebrating the arrival of spring and an explosion of color and flowers, the cover is a close up up shot of the Bajan Beauty wearing a trio of dramatic eye shadow shades. Editorial images are just as colorful.
Given Fenty Beauty as of yet doesn’t offer the shades featured on the cover, it’s a good bet they’re a preview of an upcoming launch, something Rihanna also alluded to at a recent Fenty Beauty influencer event in London when she wore a bright yellow eye shadow.
Generally speaking, celebrities appear on cover when they have a project to promote. Rihanna might be putting some energy behind a new Fenty Beauty-launch or perhaps there will be some music related news. It’s known she’s been working on her ninth studio album, which is near completion or in the books. As well, she’s featured on Childish Gambino’s “Guava Island” music project dropping on April 13th.
Check out the cover and some editorial shots below.
