Any Rihanna fan will know the singer-actress (and now fashion and beauty mogul with her Fenty x Puma and Fenty Beauty lines) is a huge fan of Queen Nefertiti. The 29-year-old star –whose real name is Robyn Fenty – boasts a tattoo of the iconic Egyptian figure on the side of her ribcage and now for the November issue of Vogue Arabia, she has emulated Nefertiti, her and many others' idol.
Wearing Gucci and a crown designed by Faeth Millinery, the "Wild Thoughts" hitmaker may not have rules Ancient Egypt but she's certainly ruling pop culture at the moment with her music and acting talents as well as her other success ventures.
Her regal air shines through in the shoot by Greg Kadel, showcasing that she's in one of the most powerful women of the moment in the Middle East and around the world.
"We are dedicating the issue to strong and dynamic women who are changing the world," Manuel Arnaut, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Arabia, says. "Rihanna, our cover star, is one of them. Not only is she one of the most successful pop icons ever, shaping the entertainment industry with her powerful tunes and unique sense of style, she is also an advocate for diversity."
