Rihanna the Face of Balmain

Luxe Models were pleased to see that Rihanna has now been made the face of French fashion label Balmain. The stylish singer will front the label’s ad campaign for their new spring range.

The new line is expected to launch across a range of titles in the new year. Olivier Rousteing, the creative director of the label, has described her as an “icon” and said that when she’s in front of the camera she makes you feel like she’s the only girl in the world. Lol, what a joker.

The ads have been shot in New York by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vindooh Matadin, styled by Mel Ottenburg, personal stylish to Rihanna.

Rihanna, who recently flashed a bit of nip, was spotted last week sporting a sassy new do at Marquee nightclub in New York. Her corkscrew curls were piled all over her charming head in a delightfully messy tousle. And with all those adjectives, how could it be anything but perfect? She’s currently at the top of the US Billboard chart with Monster, her hit single with none other than the comeback king himself, Eminem.

Rihanna shared a few of her favourite shots from the campaign on her Instagram account this week and everyone at Luxe Models agrees, they look better than average! Kidding, they’re fantastic! Thankfully there’s not an escaped nipple in sight.

The Umbrella singer is no stranger to the fashion world, having launched her own fashion range for River Island as well as modelling for Armani last year. We’re certainly looking forward to the rest of these shots and would love to know your thoughts on Rihanna’s foray into modelling!
