This shoot must’ve felt really weird for Rihanna. She’s typically not wearing this much clothing. Am I right or am I right?
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing in WWD. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”
The “Diamonds” singer makes her debut as Balmain’s latest celebrity ambassador in the first batch of photos for their Spring 2014 ad campaign. RiRi channels 90s realness with her curly bob while wearing a leather jumpsuit, super sexy houndstooth suit, gold chain link top and pink kimono-like robe. Frequent Lady Gaga photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the visuals.
I have to say, I’m liking this curly coif and subtle natural-looking makeup on Rihanna. Haute couture really suits her. Let’s face it, love Rihanna, but she can sometimes look a little trashy. Check out more images below.
