Rihanna Fronts New Dior AD Campaign ‘Secret Garden’

Love or loathe her, Rhianna sure moves brands. Her recent campaign for lifestyle brand Christian Dior from which pictures were unveiled just yesterday sees the diva pulling her best sultry and seductive poses yet for Dior’s Secret Garden Campaign.

What is more remarkable is that Ri-Ri is the first female of colour to front a major campaign for the Dior house, which is probably a cunning ploy to attract more women of colour to the brand. In an interview with MTV News in March, the 27 year old Bajan diva commented on the importance of her casting for the campaign which she said was ‘fantastic’ and meaningful.

She went on to add ‘It feels fantastic…”It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any colour. ‘I think, to be acknowledged by Dior is just, it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, and elegant, and timeless”.

Well said and we reckon that the brand are lucky to have the young diva on side, and it is worthwhile noting that beauty really has no colour boundaries, and hopefully more major lifestyle brands would emulate this example. Congratulations Ri-Ri!

Palace of Versailles Says Non To Kim K & Kanye

Non non non! Looks like money can’t buy you – your wedding location of choice. News just in on KIMYE; the Palace of Versailles have refused Kim Kardashian and Kanye West permission to marry in the national historic French monument as they are viewed as not being distinguished enough. Having set their hearts on marrying at the former abode of France’s pre-revolution kings and queens, this must have come as a disappointing blow for the couple who will now tie the knot officially in Florence. However in every cloud there is a silver lining as palace officials have agreed to the hot couple, family and friends being granted a tour of the Palace after closing hours.

 

Looking slightly downcast the couple spotted today in their workout gears, did not crack a smile for the paps who have been on their tails since they landed in the French capital Paris ahead of their 24th of May wedding. Cheer up KIMYE, the world and his mistress would be watching avidly on your big day and you are guaranteed front page insertions the day after.
