Rihanna Makes History By Being Dior’s First Black Spokesmodel
The “FourFiveSeconds” singer will appear in the Dior’s fourth installment of their “Secret Garden” Campaign, which features models posing in clothes designed by the fashion house.
Women's Wear Daily reports that photographer Steven Klein will shoot both the film and print campaign, which is scheduled to make its run this spring. The third installment of the “Secret Garden” has racked up nine million views on Dior’s YouTube channel.
With her new gig, RiRi makes history by being the first spokeswoman to front the Dior. The 27-year-old superstar joins a list of celebrities who appeared in previous campaigns for Dior, including Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence and Charlize Theron.
Rihanna is the perfect woman to front Dior given her past experience fronting MAC Cosmetics and creating her own clothing line River Island. Last year, the Bajan beauty was honored with the 2014 CFDA Fashion Icon Award. Plus, she’s the Creative Director of Puma.
Congratulations to Rihanna on her new venture with Dior.
