Rihanna becomes the New face of Balmain
What happens when a French fashion house meets a Bajan beauty who's every designer's dream to work with? Add a major photography duo to that spin. You get all sorts of flames and fierceness! And that's exactly what happened when mega superstar Rihanna posed for Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in a photo shoot styled by Mel Ottenberg for Balmain's Spring 14 ad campaign.
The What Now singer stars on Balmain's SS14 campaign which is set to appear in magazines in January 2014. The songstress who was honoured with first ever American Music Awards Icon award this year was yet again described as an 'icon' by the brand's creative director, Olivier Rusteing.
"When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete." Rousteing said.
He was further quoted saying "In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,"
Rihanna appears in two different looks for this campaign. One she's styled in denim with heavy gold chains for accessories. The second look is embraces her femininity in pink, its much softer also with gold accessories and gorgeous white lace high heels with metallic gold heels.
The singer's not new to modelling since she has also posed for a Chanel ad campaign and Armani jeans. It certainly shows with the way she's able to give out beauty even with half her hair across her face.
With her hairstyle and tattoos she's able to balance both the edginess and the chic. It is an understatement to say she killed it!
