The film and print campaign has been shot in Versailles by Steven Klein, and continues on from the third chapter, which has had more than 9 million views on Youtube. “I feel very special,” Rihanna said, “not just as a woman of colour, which I think is brilliant, but as a woman to be acknowledged by Dior is very special.”

Rihanna follows in the footsteps of previous Dior ambassadors Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron.
