As expected, Rihanna is Vogue’s March 2014 cover girl. Not as expected? Just how amazing the interview is. Like, I already thought RiRi and I were close (I follow her on Instagram, etc.), but after reading the article, we’re, like, tight. *crosses fingers to demonstrate closeness* I mean, now I know her jewelry is “all fake—from Claire’s.” I know everyone in her entourage calls her “She,” and I know that she does her very own eye makeup using MAC eyeliner. That’s the type of stuff only best friends know, right?

Another new Rihanna BFF is Plum Sykes, author of the feature, who not only hung around with Rih for the day, but was #blessed to be styled by her, too. One of the first pieces RiRi dresses Plum in is an oversized jacket (from Alexander Wang, natch) because, Rihanna reveals, “More than anything, I like a jacket. You can do anything with a great jacket, the bigger the better.” You also don’t need to wear a shirt or bra with a big jacket, so there really are multiple benefits.

The article, of course, is not just a description of a day spent with Rihanna (though that’d be totally fine, IMHO), but is accompanied by gorgeous photos of She dressed in Alexander Wang, Versace, Rodarte, and soooo much more. Sykes spoke with a number of designers, including Alexander Wang, who revealed, “There’s no one who excites [him] more” than Rihanna. Tom Ford also sang her praises, saying, “She can throw on combinations you can’t imagine other people could possibly wear, and look great.” Truer words have never been spoken, Tommy. Rihanna’s #1 cheerleader, of course, is Olivier Rousteing, who used her in Balmian’s spring campaign. He says he emailed her about the campaign and called it “Balmainriri,” which is the greatest play on words in the history of the world. Sorry, Shakespeare.

Rihanna reps a pixie cut throughout the shoot and even swaps from black hair to immaculate white a couple of times. She talks hair with Plum and reveals that she has two “main hair people” who are always with her. When she’s bored she changes her hair, and that’s why she loves weaves, because “you can do whatever.” You can even turn a weave into a mullet, if you so choose.
