Speaking about the new issue, Enninful writes (paragraphs out of orde3r):

“I always knew it had to be Rihanna,” editor-in-chief Edward Enninful wrote in his monthly editor’s letter. “A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her. No matter how haute the styling goes, or experimental the mood, you never lose her in the imagery.”
