Singer and fashion icon Rihanna was spotted filming at the Palace of Versailles as the face for the fourth installment of Dior’s Secret Garden campaign. Rihanna’s involvement in the campaign marks her as the first black woman to be the face of the French luxury label.

The campaign, shot by Steven Klein, will be running both print and video advertisements this spring, a spokesperson told Vogue U.K.

Previous models for Dior’s Secret Garden campaign have featured Daria Strokus, Melissa Stasiuk and Xiao Wen Ju.

Rihanna also joins a slew of actresses, including Jennifer Lawrence, Marion Cotillard and Natalie Portman, who are all faces of different facets of the French label.

The singer will also be continuing her foray into the fashion industry by partnering with Puma, where she will be the creative director and global ambassador for its women’s collection.
