We're going to go ahead and guess this photo of Rihanna on the March 2014 cover of Vogue is real. No one has come out and confirmed it (Ms. Wintour is probably too busy running around at New York Fashion Week to make a comment), but we're having a hard time believing that someone would play with our heart strings like this over a fake photo.
