Most known for her Stella McCartney editorial, she recently photographed Rihanna for the cover of Allure. For British Vogue, she shot global pop star, Dua Lipa for the magazine’s first issue of 2019.

Announcing this on Instagram, Ijewere said:

“If you had told me last year I would have photographed for British Vogue, I would have said not possible.

If you had told me a cover, I would have thought perhaps in a parallel universe. I am so grateful for this opportunity I have been given to shoot for a publication where I once felt perhaps I didn’t.”
