Rihanna stuns in blue bridesmaid dress at childhood friend's wedding
Rihanna headed home to Barbados over the weekend to attend her best friend's wedding. Dr. Sonita Alexander chose the singer to be one of her bridesmaids, and she did not disappoint as she actively took part in making sure everything went well for the beautiful bride.
The 30-year-old songstress managed to steal the show yet again, donning a blue bridesmaid dress with a plunging neckline and ruffled sleeves. The wedding, which was a small outdoor ceremony, was filled with the bride and groom's closest family and friends.
As for how Rihanna and Sonita are acquainted with one another, they have actually been best friends since they were kids. Growing up together in Barbados, they never lost touch with one another and have stayed close even after going their separate ways.
This isn't the first time that Riri has served as a bridesmaid for one of her friends, as she previously flew to Hawaii in April 2015 to attend her assistant Jennifer Rosales' wedding. Dressed in a purple Badgley Mischka Couture V-neck tulle gown, she was a sight to see in the memorable beach wedding.
It's not just in weddings that Rihanna steals the show of course, as being the center of attention has been her forte since entering the entertainment industry. She recently stunned the internet when she announced that she was set to be the cover girl of British Vogue's September issue, and has made history by being the first black woman ever to grace the magazine's September issue.
The "Disturbia" singer showcased her own Savage x Fenty line and Fenty Beauty makeup during the shoot and was styled by Vogue's editor-in-chief Edward Enninful. This marks Edwin's first September issue since stepping into the role of EIC last year, and they picked British fashion photographer Nick Knight to capture Riri's beautiful photos.
"I’m so honored to be on the cover of your first September issue with British Vogue @edward_enninful Thank you for considering me!"
A natural in front of the camera, it wasn't difficult for Rihanna to pose for the magazine, especially for such an iconic issue. Vogue's September issue is also known as the "Big Fashion Issue", and is the largest and most lavish editorial of the year, as it contains a 400-page guide to fashion that is highly anticipated by fashion lovers.
Given Rihanna's massive influence around the world, British Vogue's September issue is definitely going to be selling out fast just like anything else the singer ever created or even just promoted.
