Rihanna is adding a new gig to her resume! The 25-year-old star has an affinity for flaunting her edgy fashion sense even when she’s just stepping out on the sidewalk, so it comes as no surprise that Balmain tapped her for the Spring/Summer 2014 campaign!
Shot by famed photog duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the campaign was captured in NYC in early November 2013 — and RiRi looks better than ever! We’re clearly not the only ones who think so. Olivier Rousteing, Balmain’s creative director, gushed about having the star front the latest campaign.
“Dreams do come true… When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete. Not compromising, fresh, modern, the icon of my generation, Rihanna embodies my vision of Balmain in this new campaign. In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” he said in a statement released by the brand.
Styled by Rihanna’s personal stylist Mel Ottenberg, the songstress can be seen in not one but two Balmain looks and there’s a juxtaposition between the rather gritty, white tiled background and the luxe looks, complimented by metallic accents. In one leggy shot, she’s sporting a pink, belted ensemble with her svelte legs crossed in front of her. In another, she’s rocking a long-sleeved, off-the-shoulder embellished shirt.
Personally we’re loving RiRi as the face of the brand — it’s a perfect fit! Do you agree? VOTE. Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
