Rihanna has made history, becoming the first woman to appear on the cover of British Vogue wearing a durag.
The garment, which is used to help the development of braids, waves and dreadlocks, has had a storied history in the black community. From being worn by slaves through to members of the Black power movement, it is a potent sartorial symbol of African-Caribbean survival and celebration.
