Rihanna cemented her status as a global fashion icon a long time ago, but she escalated to new levels of iconic when she became the first black woman to be featured as a campaign star for storied French brand, Christian Dior.
The announcement was made in March, and when teaser trailers for Dior’s Secret Garden advertising campaign started to surface in May, the buzz surrounding the video only continued to grow — and the final product did not disappoint. Dark, moody, and completely intoxicating, Rihanna captures the viewer’s full attention from the very first frame as she dances and struts to the sound of “Only If For a Night,” from forthcoming album.

Given that Rihanna is the face of the brand, it’s no surprise that the pop star was sitting front row at the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2016 show during Paris Fashion Week. She looked stunning in a soft pink Dior cape dress, accessorized with some oversized shades.
As she waited for the runway show to start, Rihanna took the opportunity to snap a few selfies from the front row, because why wouldn’t you when you look THAT fabulous?
