Celebrating Fashionista and Pop Icon Rihanna… new face of Balmain!
Last week I paid tribute to the beautiful Erykah Badu as she has been hand chosen for Givenchy 2014 line and today it’s hats off to Rihanna. Balmain followed suit in getting top style attraction for their 2014 line when appointing Rihanna as the face and inspiration.
The brands young, 27 year old creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, who has almost 150,000 followers via instagram states “Rihanna embodies my vision of Balmain in this new campaign.” Olivier has headed the past five seasons and is bringing a more softer feel to this power house brand. (BTW… I love the article written on Olivier found on OUT. Be sure to check it out!)
One of my favorite looks from 2009:
One of my favorite looks of Rihanna in Balmain comes from this year, back in May 2013. She was spotted wearing the feminine design and color of mint green. This gave her sometimes edgy look a much more softer touch but still sex appeal.
Lastly, below are a few photos Rihanna took while visiting the fashion showroom of Balmain when on tour in Paris. Mr. Oliver Rousteing even attended her show where she shared a friendly kiss backstage.
I salute you Rihanna! 2014 fashion scene will be amazing!
