Step aside Marie Antoinette, there’s a new Queen of Versailles. It’s Ri-Ri in Dior.
We’ve been waiting all week but it’s finally here. Rihanna’s campaign video for Dior. Taking over Versailles and making it look better than we’ve ever seen before, the palace goes less saccharine pastel and gets vampish. Parading through the halls in sequins and heels, the closest we’re going to get to recreating this is making the trek to Buckhingham Palace to walk down the Mall. Not chic.
Shot by none other than Steven Klein, it’s like 60 seconds of a Grimm fairytale, it’s mysterious and magical and with Rihanna’s much loved bad girl attitude, she’s the perfect anti-hero for the story. Featuring a snippet from the intro to her eighth album, Only If For A Night, we’re not sure how much longer we can wait for more. Anyone else hoping for a performance at the Dior SS16 show? Pray to Christian Dior.
