The pop stars, who both landed September issue covers on separate editions of Vogue (Rih on British Vogue and Bey on American Vogue), left fans drawing comparisons between their covers when both women sported elaborate floral arrangement hats for their photo shoots.
Instead of a standard flower crown, Rihanna and Beyoncé graced the iconic issues wearing huge hats with blooming peonies, roses, orchids and more gorgeous flowers.

Hours after Beyoncé’s cover dropped, the Twitterverse started comparing the singer’s cover to Rihanna’s British Vogue cover which debuted last week.
“@Beyonce for @voguemagazine and @rihanna for @BritishVogue. Both covering the September issues, the most important issue for each magazine. I stan for queens in floral headpieces. Yaasss!” one fan said.
Another fan tweeted, “I LOVE that Beyoncé and Rihanna both have flowers in their hair for their Vogue covers. I think it connects them in a beautiful way.”
Each photo in Bey’s shoot is named after one of her hit songs, with the floral headdress cover shot titled “Me Myself and I” — a single from the star’s 2003 album Dangerously in Love.
The chorus of the song states, “Me, myself, and I, that’s all I got in the end / That’s what I found out / And it ain’t no need to cry, I took a vow that from now on /I’m gon’ my own best friend.”
Beyoncé’s lyrics often parallel her connection to nature, which was seen throughout her visual album Lemonade.
