Rihanna is constantly taking fashion risks, and until now she has never disappointed us. The famed French fashion house has chosen as the new face for the fourth episode of Dior's "Secret Garden" video series, the Barbadian singer. This means that we will see Rihanna dressed in a stunning Dior gown while running around the palace of Versailles. In Additions, the singer will appear in the print campaign shot by Steven Klein (the same director of the video) scheduled to run this spring.
If this has not already left you speechless, you must know that the contract between the 27-year-old superstar and Dior sets a new step forward for the fashion’s fight against diversity. Indeed Rihanna's campaign marks the first time a black woman has been chosen as testimonial for the French fashion brand. That's epic, isn’t it?
"It feels fantastic," she explained. "It is a big deal for me longer available, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color. I think to be acknowledged by Dior means-a lot, as a woman, to feel beautiful - to feel elegant and timeless". This would also explain the constant presence in the front row of the Grammy Award-winning singer to the various fashion show of the French Maison.
But as we know, Fashion for Rihanna has never been a secret passion. In fact her fashion agenda is really full! She already has fronted Balmain campaign and recently she became a creative director at Puma. In Additions, the "Four Five Seconds" singer was named last year's Fashion Icon at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards and obviously we could not forget her stunning Adam Selman dress (that left nothing to the imagination) which she wore for the event. So we can say that Rihanna is a certified fashion addicted!
