Last Friday, Rihanna was announced as the star of Dior’s next “Secret Garden” campaign, the first video and print ad a black woman has starred in for the fashion house. MTV New caught up with Rihanna post announcement where she shared what the news meant to her; “It feels fantastic. It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any colour. I think to be acknowledged by Dior is just, it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, to feel elegant and timeless.” How humble is she? The self proclaimed non role model is quite clearly turning into one, although we’re sure she’ll keep being Rihanna outside of the role model glow. Congratulations though Riri!
