“Thousands of years apart, two iconic women will finally meet in the pages of Vogue Arabia,” the magazine tweeted in a teaser for the issue.
Two images have been released for the covers, one with a snakeskin look and another with a more feathered ensemble. Both feature the headpiece famously sculpted in depictions of Queen Nefertiti.
But while many love the snakeskin look on Rihanna, others called it an example of cultural appropriation, since Rihanna is from Barbados. This is not the first time the singer has been accused of cultural appropriation, either, though she has yet to respond to the accusations.
What do you think, Grio fam? Did the Rihanna cover go too far?
