At the start of January, American pop sensation Rihanna took to her Twitter page to reveal she’d just scored her first US Vogue cover for the magazine’s April issue – naughty!

“Just wrapped my first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz…Rah! #SEXY” she tweeted.

However, the tweet was swiftly removed from Rihanna’s page, probably after a firm telling off by the Conde Nast PR team, we reckon.

But after a few months of waiting, the US Vogue cover has finally landed onto the scene – and boy was it worth the wait.

Looking like a glistening mermaid, Rihanna is dressed in a stunning skin-tight sheer dress from Chanel’s pre-fall 2011 collection, and although it might not be as racy as her latest music video for single S&M – the sex appeal may have been a little out of Vogue’s comfort zone, reports the Telegraph – she still looks smokin’.

We’re pretty sure the singer’s fans will be delighted with her prestigious fashion scoop – after all, gracing the front cover of Vogue is a pretty big deal, right?
