Rihanna is the new face of Christian Dior, becoming the first black woman to be the face of the fashion house. The pop singer will be a part of Dior’s Secret Garden campaign. Rihanna will follow in the footsteps of other celebrities who have represented Dior including Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, and Marion Cotillard.
The pop singer is continuing to build her fashion resume, which also includes a new partnership with Puma. Rihanna was named the Creative Director and chief consultant for Puma’s womenswear line, for which she will be working on their fitness and training apparel and shoes. “Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma. Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition…all these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand,” Puma’s chief officer Bjorn Gulden stated. He added,”With a strong portfolio in football, running, and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women’s training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us.”
