Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihanna, always one to break or push boundaries has made history as the first black woman to be the face of, iconic fashion house, Dior. Riri will be starring in the next installment of Dior’s Secret Garden campaign, which was shot in Versailles, France, by Steven Klein. “Film and print versions of the campaign are scheduled to run this spring,” a brand spokesperson told Vogue U.K.
Rihanna is joining the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard as the face of Dior, Women’s Wear Daily has learned. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Rihanna would land such an impressive gig given her incredible red carpet and off duty looks over the past few years.
The campaign is scheduled to run in Spring 2015. The film and print campaign features models walking around the lavish Palace of Versailles in stunning Dior gowns; where Rihanna has in fact already been spotted in a gorgeous silver sequined frock filming what did indeed turn out to be her Dior debut! A New York-based producer on the shoot posted and tagged shots of Rihanna on Facebook, accidentally revealing the news before, well, the official reveal. Regardless we can’t wait to see the final product of this amazing alliance.
This isn’t Rihanna’s only major collaboration in the works, either: Riri has a full-range partnership with Puma, which will have her acting as the brand’s Creative Director and chief consultant for the women’s training line, goodness could she add anymore to her resume!?by
