We’ve seen Paris through Keira Knightley’s eyes in plenty of Chanel ads in recent years, but no one does Parisian luxury with an edge like @badgalriri.
Back in March, Rihanna was announced as the first black celebrity to be the face of Dior, 69 years after the fashion house was launched. Dior released the new video called Secret Garden IV featuring the singer from Barbados.

Directed by Steven Klein, the video is dark and moody. Rihanna walks up the steps of Palace of Versailles as the owner of the château. While she runs through opulent rooms and gardens, we witness multiple costume changes draped in glamour. In the background, we can hear Rihanna’s rumored new song “Only If for a Night.”
Near the end, the video features aerial shots of the famous gardens in front of the palace meanwhile Rihanna twirls toward the large fountain. In the last shot, we see the “Umbrella” singer wearing a long-sleeved sequin gown, holding a Dior clutch.
In a statement, Klein said:
Rihanna’s mystery and intrigue combined with her razor sharp looks and sensibility, are the essential, perfect elements to create the stage for Secret Garden.
