If there’s someone who can make even the most unlikeliest of things fashionable, it’s Rihanna. Apparently, that even includes thin eyebrows, which, against all odds and historical evidence, manage to look good on her.
Rihanna is featured on the cover of British Vogue‘s September issue, posing with some crazy flowers in her hair and sporting minimal pencil line eyebrows. According to Mashable, this marks the first time a black woman has appeared on the cover of Vogue‘s famous September issue since the magazine’s inception 102 years ago.
Rihanna’s looks and attitude drove the Internet crazy as expected, with some people praising her looks and imitating her, and some drawing the line at the thin eyebrows.

While a lot of people were really stressed out over the eyebrows, the majority of media and users were just proud that Rihanna was featured on British Vogue’s most important issue of the year.
