Dior is known for exquisite advertising campaigns starring iconic women—Marion Cotillard, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence—so when the French fashion house announced that Rihanna would feature in the fourth installment of its Secret Garden series (making her the first black face of the brand, no less), we knew there was something spectacular in store. The just-released short film, set in Versailles and featuring a never-before-heard song, “Only If For a Night,” from the singer’s eighth album, doesn’t disappoint: watch Rihanna bring the dram and glam as she runs, struts and dances through the famous gardens and château (MaRiRi Antoinette?) in a series of dazzling outfits, including a silver sequined turtleneck dress from Dior’s prefall 2015 collection. In a press release, the film’s director, Steven Klein, said, “Rihanna’s mystery and intrigue, combined with her razor-sharp looks and sensibility, are the essential, perfect elements to create the stage for Secret Garden.” We agree(Ri). (Too much?)
