Rihanna is already stepping up to the plate and taking this honor seriously. In an interview with MTV to promote her upcoming movie Home, RiRi dished on the importance of her appointment. "It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color, I think, to be acknowledged by Dior," she says. "It means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful to feel elegant and timeless."
The new campaign is set to feature Rihanna in the fourth episode of Dior's "Secret Garden" film and print campaign, which is set for a spring release. Rihanna was shot at Versailles by renowned fashion photographer Steven Klein.
