Back in May, Rihanna made history by becoming the latest face of luxury brand Christian Dior. The pop star follows in the footsteps of fellow gorgeous powerhouse women such as Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and Jennifer Lawrence. Rihanna’s tour-de-force as the face of the brand marks the first time ever that Dior has featured a black woman as its star.
After months of anticipation, which included a dark and beautiful short video set to her song “Only If For a Night,” the first photos of Rihanna’s editorial spread for Christian Dior have finally made their way onto her Instagram.
The stunning photos feature @badgalriri in a variety of, we assume, custom Dior pieces, donning sultry dark purple lipstick and piercing the camera with her intoxicating gaze. Clad in a dress with a chic industrial vibe that shows off her best assets and a skintight, geometric body suit, she looks gorgeous as always.
We can’t wait to see the full Dior Mag shoot when it’s released.
