The "What Now" singer has an obvious love for fashion and hasn't been afraid to "go there" with her looks.  It's safe to say, the fashion industry embraced their badgirl back.  He instagram is chalk full of jealousy inducing fashion, her line "Rihanna for Rivers Island" is a hit with the ladies all over, and she is an executive producer for the Bravo show "Styled to Rock."  There is no limit to the star's shine and obvious sex appeal.  Upon posting them on her instagram, she captioned the photo in true Rihanna fashion "Guess who's the new BALMAIN Woman???!!!!!!! #BALMAIN #MommaImadeIT #CaribbeanGalRunTing..."

(Who can disagree with that?)

The badgal shot the campaign in New York City last month by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.  Rih's personal stylist Mel Ottenberg styled the pop icon for the project.  The photos show Rihanna in what look like she is in a steam room where she is serving face and sexy.  In one of the ads, the singer is dressed in a pink and white Kimono style coat that has been accessorized with white lace gold-toed and heeled booties.

This campaign makes the singer the second song bird to land a major spring 2014 fashion campaign.  Earlier this mother, Givenchy announced and revealed Erykah Badu as their spokes model.  Seems like the fashion world is in love with the queens of music.  Hoping for Beyonce to be named as a spokes model soon.
