Ariana Grande is Vogue Magazine‘s latest cover star.

The songbird, who has made an enviable habit of nesting at the top of the charts, glows in the Annie Leibovitz lensed shoot for the August issue of the fashion bible.

For, as relates to the latter, she cites earlier offerings as lacking “substance.”
