Rihanna Is The Scorching Hot New Face Of Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign
Rihanna is Styled To Rock as the new face of Balmain‘s Spring/Summer 2014 print campaign. The Parisian label’s creative director Olivier Rousteing sang the praises of his 25-year-old muse.
“When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete,” Rousteing said in a statement. “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.”
Rousteing also took to Instagram to share his enthusiasm, posting the image of the “Monster” singer in a houndstooth print suit with the caption: “WHEN YOUR INSPIRATION MEETS YOUR CREATION #feelscomplete #loveu @badgalriri #dreamsdocometrue #iconic #onlygirlintheworld. DREAMS DO COME TRUE.”
The sexy ads were shot in New York by high-fashion photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with creative direction by Atelier Franck Durand and styling by Mel Ottenberg. Rih-Rih’s campaign is expected to hit magazines in January 2014, but the clearly excited Barbadian beauty couldn’t help but share the news with her fans and posted her Balmain advertisement on Instagram.
“Guess who’s the new BALMAIN Woman???!!!!!!!,” she gushed on the social media site. “#BALMAIN #MommaImadeIt #CaribbeanGalRunTing.”
Do you agree, does this Caribbean girl run things?
