Rihanna Is The New Face Of BALMAIN + Gets Boo'd Up With A$AP Rocky?!
Rihanna's landed herself a brand new campaign....as the face of the French luxury fashion house BALMAIN. Check out her first pics inside as BALMAIN's spokesmodel, plus her cozy night out with rapper A$AP Rocky....
When you're looking for that person to show off your clothes to absolute perfection, BadGal RiRi should definitely be on your short list. The hot bodied "Stay" singer was brought in by BALMAIN's brand new 27-year-old creative director, Olivier Rousteing. And the pop star is now the face of the luxury brand.
She tweeted: “Guess who’s the new BALMAIN Woman???!!!!!!! #BALMAIN #MommaImadeIt #CaribbeanGalRunTing”
In her brand new spring/summer 2014 campaign for the fashion house, shot in NYC by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Rihanna's rocking denim on denim which is all decked out with gold chains and buckles.
And in a second pic, she's showing off more jewelry with a pink & white coat and matching skirt. And those white lace gold cap toe & heeled booties...WORK.
Olivier told VOGUE UK about choosing Rihanna for the ads that will appear in mags in January:
“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world. When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”
Rih celebrated last night in NYC by rocking a hot pink furry jacket and Miu Miu suede and ponyhair shoes to an exclusive industry party at SoHo House:
But it's who she was snuggled up with that has folks' eyebrows raised. Rapper A$AP Rocky had his arm around Rihanna for much of the night and the two "Fashion Killas" seemed pretty chummy:
Sure, the two recently shot a steamy video together and also went on the Diamonds tour together....so it could just be a "work friends" situation. Especially since A$AP has been dating model Chanel Iman for a long while now.
But Rih is definitely not the chick you want your man being "steamy work friends" with....that ish could become just plain old steamy in the blink of an eye.
Time will tell...
1. Since Beyonce didn't put her self-titled new album in Target at the same times as releasing it elsewhere (meaning, they're mad they weren't included on the exclusive), they said they won't be carrying the Beyonce album. Meanwhile, no one cares. STORY
