Long Version: Rihanna Stars in Dior’s “Secret Garden IV” Campaign
Last week Dior brought you the brand new Secret Garden IV campaign, in which the singer Rihanna explores a Versailles cloaked in mystery. Follow here once more today through the secret world of the chateau and its gardens, in this full-length, extended version of the film directed by Steven Klein.
A presence looms in a nighttime Versailles. Captured by Steven Klein’s camera, Rihanna passes through the sumptuous salons and the Hall of Mirrors to the rhythm of the track “Only If For a Night”, produced by Midas, and which will be the opener to her upcoming album. Enigmatic and enchanting, the singer heads to the palace gardens, where their box hedges, clipped to spell the House’s emblematic initials, convey a fairytale air. As the only light, the glow of candles and moonbeams highlight the details of the Esprit Dior Tokyo collection: the metallic closure and cannage of the Diorama bag, the silvered spangles of a dress, the finely-crafted metal of the Tribale earrings, the sequins sprinkling a nose veil.
