It’s common knowledge that Rihanna is one of the most beautiful specimens to walk earth, and here she is proving yet again how simply sublime she is in Dior’s new Secret Garden campaign.
Shot by Steven Klein at the French Palace of Versailles, the singer brings her signature edge to the gothic-inspired images which see her modelling some of the label’s more dramatic creations including a crystal-embellished veiled headpiece and low-cut fur dress.
Known as a fashion maverick, Rih is the perfect choice to become the first black woman to front a Dior campaign. She said of her historic appointment, “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, and elegant, and timeless.”
We can’t wait to see the accompanying video, which is slated for May 18th and will feature A Night, Rihanna’s sample of the Florence Welch song from her forthcoming album.
It’s all too much, frankly.
