American superstar Rihanna bold maternity shoot during the city’s fashion week and also covered by Vogue magazine

Superstar has been covered in her bold and beautiful fashion-forward maternity looks from announcing her pregnancy with partner Rocky in January, delighting fans with her choice of crop tops, sheer dresses, and belly chains. Now, she’s the star of American Vogue’s May issue, fronting the title in a fiery red lace bodysuit and matching gloves from AlaIïa.

Rihanna poses so many looks in an ornate Parisian hotel room during the city’s fashion week, displaying her bump in a dramatic veiled Jean Paul Gaultier couture gown, a red Rick Owens cropped jacket and long skirt ensemble, and a pillowy Marc Jacobs coat paired with her own Savage X Fenty briefs.

The cover story comes less than three months after Rihanna’s first public photos as a mom-to-be, where she and A$AP Rocky posed lovingly in Harlem while she wore a vibrant vintage Chanel puffer coat, unbuttoned from the bottom, low-slung jeans, and a Chanel chain belt. Since then, she’s used every public appearance to debut a new head-turning outfit.

Rihanna poses for a picture at a Fenty event in Los Angeles in February, and this photoshoot is covered by Annie Leibovitz.

In an interview, Rihanna opened up about her whirlwind past few months and the reason she’s been emphasizing her body, rather than hiding it

When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle. I’m sorry — it’s too much fun to get dressed up,” she told Vogue. “I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”

“I think I even say yes to more now because I know it will be different on the other side of this,” she said in the interview. “At first I expected some magical change, but really I remain who I am…None of the dials are turned down.”

‘My body is doing incredible things right now

For the entirety of fashion month, Rihanna was the star, showing up to the Gucci show in Milan with a latex crop top and oversized purple fur coat, followed by Dior in Paris, where she wore a sheer black lace slip with knee-high patent leather boots.

“My body is doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. This time should feel celebratory. Because why should you be hiding your pregnancy”
