Rihanna and Beyoncé cover Vogue’s Met Gala special issue

Both Rihanna and Beyoncé grace the cover of this year’s Met Gala special edition, out now.

“When we fell upon the photo of Rihanna AND Beyoncé, we thought, ‘Bingo,’ ” says Chloe Malle, Vogue’s social editor and editrix of the 132-page annual glossy.

After leaving a celeb-filled after-party at the Standard Hotel at 1 a.m., Malle and five other sleepy-eyed staffers gathered at the Vogue offices at 4:30 a.m. to put together the book — and to gossip about the event. Conversation ranged from Rihanna’s abs (rock-hard) and Lauren Santo Domingo’s JAR diamond rose necklace (“major,” according to Malle) to whether model-of-the-moment Kate Upton’s barmaid-cum-flamenco dancer frock was a fashion no-no.

“No comment,” Malle says diplomatically, as she sorts through a mountain of photos from the evening.

“We have to include one of Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend,” she announces. “Anna is super into them and they’re in Thom Browne.”
