We told you Rihanna was making history as the first black woman to become the face of Dior. Now, her official “Secret Garden IV” campaign has been released…and it’s HOT. Check it inside….
Rihanna’s name went down in the fashion history books as the first woman of color to become the face of French fashion house Dior. And now, we’re treated to her first ad campaign where Rih is on her best model behavior, per usual.
During an interview with MTV News, the Bajan beauty spoke on the significance of her big feat and how fantasic it feels. She gushed,
“It feels fantastic. It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color. I think to be acknowledged by Dior it means a lot for a women to feel beautiful, elegant and timeless. ”
Shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein at the Palace of Versailles, the “BBHMM” singer slays every single shot for the Secret Garden IV FW2015 ad campaign. (SIDENOTE: Remember we showed you pics of her shooting the spread a few months ago).
In the fierce spread, the 27-year-old fashionista brings a dark fantasy to life as she runs through a hall of mirrors in a red gown and poses it up in a moonlit garden as she models the Diorama bag (the unofficial signature bag of the new Dior woman). It’s serving up a mysteriously sultry vibe and we’re digging it.
The history making Dior chick will also bring her talents to the fourth episode of Dior’s “Secret Garden” video series, which will premiere on Dior.com.
We’ll keep you posted with the video drops, but until then, peep her “Secret Garden” hot shots below:

As we get our life after oogling over RiRi’s new breathtaking ad, she’s busy celebrating with her besties Melissa Forde and Jenn Rosales for Leandra’s birthday. And that outfit Rih has on is fire!
The ladies are enjoying a chill evening of downing shots, puffing on a little “Mary Jane,” and dance competitions. Peep Rih and Jenn go head-to-head in an old school dance-off below:
