Rihanna has just released on her instagram the first images of her in Dior’s stunning new “Secret Garden” ad campaign. Check out the pictures here.
Rihanna was named the new face of Dior back in March this year, which marked a milestone in the brands history - as the 27-year old pop starlet is the first black woman to front the iconic French label. "It feels fantastic," Rihanna told MTV "It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any colour. I think, to be acknowledged by Dior is just... it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, and elegant, and timeless."
And yesterday Rihanna shared with her 18.7 million instagram followers the first set of images of her starring role in Dior’s latest “Secret Garden” campaign (to view all the pictures click through our picture gallery above).
The pictures, shot by Steven Klein, were taken in the ultra luxurious location at the Palace of Versailles in Paris. Rih Rih looks absolutely stunning in a series of three sultry, goth-glam looks. With one snap showcasing an uber glam, low-cut black dress (and exposing a glimpse of one of her tattoos), paired with an intricate black, beaded veil.

And in another, the singer is channelling the ‘more is more’ vibe – in a high-neck sequin dress, holding 2 metallic handbags paired and donning some seriously cool sunglasses (want.need.now). And of cause finishing off the look perfectly with her trademark beauty look – a bold red lip.
On the 18 May, Dior will unveil 'Secret Garden 4' - a campaign and film starring Rihanna. Watch the 2 teaser trailers below...
