In case you thought the flower crown trend was well and truly over, think again.
The September issue of Vogue, also known as the most important issue, has been released and they feature our two Queens, Beyoncé for British Vogue, and Rihanna for American Vogue. They’re absolutely brilliant and we just can’t get enough.
Do we want both editions plastered all over our office walls? Duh. Are we completely and totally in love with everything about the cover images? Of course! Are we excited about the reemergence of the flower crown? You can totally bet on it.
On both covers, which were released within a week of each other, the two stars are adorned with massive floral headpieces. Rihanna’s piece, designed by Japanese floral sculptor, Makoto Azuma, who is the genius behind our favourite floral showstopper, literally covers her entire head and is beautifully artistic and so totally RiRi. The blooms are bold and dark, with shades of red and purple circling her face. Is it too late to call your florist and tell them your Winter Wedding needs this same colour scheme? We hope not, because these are some serious winter vibes.

Rihanna wears a @loewe dress, hair by @yusefhairnyc, make-up by @isamayaffrench using @fentybeauty, floral artistry by @azumamakoto, nails by @jennynails and set design by @tomotattle
Our girl Bey on the other hand, wears an impressively oversized piece filled with sweet pinks and oranges. Designed by London florist, Rebel Rebel, her flower crown is the perfect Spring inspiration. The colours work so well for a Spring wedding, and we can see them in your bouquet, on your tables as centrepieces, and of course, as a flower crown!
These two ladies really are the Queens of setting trends, so be prepared for the flower crown to make a spectacular comeback for every special occasion. Who knows? It might even make it’s way to the altar. Floral brides, here we come.
(But please, can Rihanna’s super thin eyebrow look stay on the cover Vogue? We definitely don’t need that trend back.)
