Dior, the iconic French fashion house shocked everyone last week when they signed Rihanna. Steven Klein did an extensive photo shoot for the super-star singer last week for the fourth installment of Dior’s “Secret Garden” campaign in Versailles. Each prior installment has starred a model rather than a celebrity. A representative for the brand has confirmed that Rihanna will indeed star in a short film and print ad scheduled to debut this spring.
This will be Rihanna’s first campaign for Dior. She has sat in the front row of the Dior shows for too long! Its time for this girl to get some action and some press! She doesn’t typically wear the brand on the red carpet, but that’s not the only reason why this casting choice is somewhat surprising. Rihanna is also Dior’s first black campaign star in recent memory. A big shout out to Dior for taking a stand and breaking that trend.
