Now that all of the dust has settled from the storm that Beyonce stirred up, Rihanna has a quick second to step into the spotlight. The 25 year-old-singer recently revealed that she will be the new face of Balmain for their spring/summer 2014 campaign that will appear in magazines in the new year. The beautiful photos feature Rihanna in houndstooth and gold chain detailing and were shot in New York by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Rihanna’s personal stylist, Mel Ottenberg, styled the entire shoot.

“It was heaven,” Balmain’s creative director, Olivier Rousteing told “I wanted the campaign to be about Balmain, but I didn’t just want a model—I wanted a strong, real woman in the clothes. For me, Rihanna is a power. And she pushes boundaries on everything.”

We think Rihanna looks beautiful in the campaign. Rousteing could not have chosen a better muse. What do you think about the campaign?
