Rihanna has gotten a lot of opportunities in the fashion world that many could only dream of and she’s adding one more HUGE role to her roster. In addition to be the face of Balmain last spring, the creative director of Puma and a designer for River Island– the Bajan beauty is now the face of Dior.

Joining Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman and Marion Cotillard the 27-year-old adds much needed color to the French fashion house.
As reported by Grazia Daily:
Rihanna is set to star in Dior’s next ‘Secret Garden’ video. Called ‘Secret Service’, the episode will be part of a huge print and film campaign shot by Steven Klein in Versailles. The third episode has already racked up over nine million views on Dior’s Youtube channel, and shows three models walking through a castle and it’s dreamy grounds wearing head to toe Dior, of course. We’ve heard that Versailles was shut down just for Rihanna, so we cannot wait to see what the finished video looks like.
Clearly we’re excited to see how Rihanna transforms the culture of fashion and adds her own style to Dior. But what’s even more exciting is to see talented women of color getting major roles in the beauty and fashion realm.
Congrats, RiRi! And lucky you, Dior.
