Rihanna already has a vision for her dream wedding gown.

The star, who is the face of Vogue‘s November cover, participated in an episode of the outlet’s “Go Ask Anna” series, where Anna Wintour turned things around and asked Rihanna several personal questions, including the details of her dream wedding dress.

Rihanna, 31, revealed that she would “of course” seek design help from John Galliano when it came to the attire for her future big day.

“It would probably be a collaboration between myself and Galliano,” she said.

But Wintour didn’t let the “Stay” singer get away without addressing the release of her next album, adding that “everyone wants to know.”

“Pending,” Rihanna teased before admitting that she was hiding from the Rihanna Navy — the name for her fan base.

Wintour also revealed that not only does she know the theme for next year’s Met Gala, she also said that Rihanna would be attending the 2020 event after missing the Camp-themed gala in May.

“You promised me you would be back next year, and when we’re off-camera, I’m going to tell you the theme,” Wintour said. “You’re gonna love it.”

In addition to chatting about all things fashion and beauty in the magazine’s recent issue, the artist also explains her decision not to perform in the Super Bowl halftime show, confirming rumors that she had turned down the opportunity in 2019, citing disagreements with the NFL.

When asked if she had declined the halftime show in solidarity with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Rihanna responded, “Absolutely.”

“I couldn’t dare do that,” she continued. “For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”

Apart from appearing in this month’s cover of Vogue, the singer also made headlines after announcing the upcoming release of her newest project, a coffee table book packed with fashionable photos of herself through the years.
