The ban has been lifted!
RiRi was supposed to get the cover spot back in 2009, but the editor-in-chief nixed the idea after those nude pictures leaked.
Now that all's been forgotten, the Only Girl In The World tweeted on Wednesday:
"Just wrapped my first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz…Rah! #SEXY"
Rumor has it Rihanna will be fronting the April or May issue.
