Rihanna for Balmain's S/S 2014 Campaign

After Lady Gaga for Versace and recently Erykah Badu for Givenchy, creative director Olivier Rousteing of Balmain decided that none other than Rihanna was perfect for the campaign of his Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The campaign images were shot by Inez and Vinoodh and Mel Ottenberg styled her in the two looks.

He posted some behind-the-scenes images on his Instagram page saying that she is '..more than an icon''. Not only is she his inspiration but also for an entire generation, I agree. To have Rihanna as his campaignstar is a dream come true for the young designer. "In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world," Olivier Rousteing told WWD.

  1. echt een leuke blog! super!
    neem een kijkje op onze blog?kunnen we volgen

  2. Liking the images for sure...though I really don´t understand why everyone associates her with clothes...her stylist dresses her not anyone else, not to mention her very own line was no good.

    1. I agree, but I guess it's just because the clothes look very good on her..

  3. I'm not a big fan of Rihanna's songs. I listen to some of them, but often I hear them when I go out to party. But somehow I just can't stop looking at her no matter where I see her - press, TV, no matter where I see her, I just can't stop look at her. So definately, I think that she is great fit for Bailmain's campaign! :)
