The comeback we never asked for.

Please lord no.

It feels like only yesterday our eyebrows were plucked into oblivion, yet apparently thin brows could be making a comeback.

British Vogue unveiled the cover for its September issue this morning, featuring Rihanna with a noticeable element missing from her face. HER NORMAL-SIZED BROWS.

Words can only do so much, which is why you need to see it for yourself:

Rihanna Rules. @badgalriri covers the September issue of @britishvogue, styled by @edward_enninful and shot by @nick_knight, on newsstands Friday August 3. @badgalriri wears a @prada dress and gloves and @savagexfenty lace body.

Now, forgive me if I’m mistaken, but I was under the belief that we had all agreed to never return to thin browns again. Have we not learned from our 2005 mistakes? My eyebrows have only just recovered from the embarrassment of that era

If it were anyone else, we’d laugh this cover off into the distance. But it’s Rihanna. And we’re all familiar with the adage ‘it’s ugly, until Rihanna decides it’s not’.

Lord have mercy on us all.
