Rihanna Tapped as New Face for Dior

Rihanna latest headline is is her chicest yet. She is the new face for Christian Dior and will star in the elite fashion house’s Secret Garden Video Campaign. Rihanna’s video will mark the fourth in the series. Rihanna joins the ranks of A-List celebrities like Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron. 

The campaign has been shot by Steven Klein set in the famed Versailles. The accompanying film will be released later this year and be a continuation from the third chapter which garnered over 9 million views on youtube. The star who has impressive social media stats of her own will surely better that figure. 

While she has often been a fixture in the Christian Dior front row and has rocked the brand in the past, many were surprised by the announcement given her edgey persona. Rihanna’s campaign also makes history since she’s the first black woman to be a brand ambassador for the brand. Congratulations Rihanna! This is great news for diversity within fashion.
