Happy Birthday, Rihanna! These 19 Magazine Covers Confirm Your Status As Bonafide Fashion Icon

In the off-chance this day isn't highlighted, circled, and starred on your calendar, it's time to celebrate—it's Rihanna's 27th birthday. Despite only releasing one song this year (not counting her feature on Eminem's "Monster"), Rih has covered 19 magazines since her last birthday. Sure, I listen to "FourFiveSeconds" multiple times per day, but that only came out a month ago, yet here we are with N-I-N-E-T-E-E-N covers.

Though she was bestowed the ~title~ of Fashion Icon by the CFDA in June, these varied covers underline just how sought after and important she is in the fashion world now—she doesn't even need to be promoting anything to be cover-worthy.

It has been our honor to collect 'em all for all your wallpapering needs. (Scrolling is vastly improved when accompanied by "We Found Love" on repeat, FYI—we tested it, so we know it's true.)
