Rihanna for Balmain Spring 2014 Campaign
Rihanna stars in Balmain’s spring 2014 campaign ad:
Rihanna has always been a huge supporter of creative director, Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain label. According to a find from WWD, Rihanna has taken her support to new heights by posing for photos that will be displayed within the French label’s Spring 2014 Ad Campaign. The campaign is slated to break in a range of January fashion titles and we cannot wait to reveal more from this campaign! The ads were shot in New York by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The duo shot Rihanna’s 032c Magazine spread as well (here).

In this photo, Rihanna poses in a complete ‘baby pink’ set from the Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. Rihanna wore the baby pink houndstooth jacket (here) while attending Drake’s concert and after party. This SS14 look consists of gold chunky bracelets, the houndstooth jacket and skirt complete with paisley, gold-toed ankle boots, along with a belt.

In this second shot, Rihanna pulls from the denim pieces within the Spring 2014 Collection. Bearing her shoulders in this denim and gold interlaced top, she poses in denim trousers accessorized with Balmain’s gold bracelets and lion head belt.
In this photo from the campaign, Rihanna again wears an outfit that implements the signature houndstooth element within the collection. This time, it offers an oversized blazer jacket with gold button detailing in black and white along with a deep neck top and high split skirt. She also completed the look with Balmain’s gold bracelets and thick belt.
This photo from the ad is unique because Rihanna actually wore this complete look while out in New York (here). The pieces she wore included a leather jumpsuit with Balmain’s signature quilted pattern and a pair of black gold cap-toe boots. Rihanna also wore Balmain’s gold cuffs, necklace and white top under her jumpsuit.
Here, Rihanna wears a lovely white short sleeve sweater from the Spring 2014 Collection along with another high-split skirt. Olivier described the “icon” of his generation, Rihanna, as uncompromising, fresh and modern. Check out the entire collection below.
