PARIS – Rihanna has a new gig: representing Christian Dior.

The storied French fashion house said Friday that the 27-year-old musical superstar will appear in an upcoming video and print ad campaign filmed in Versailles and slated to run this spring.

She is the first black woman ever to front the high fashion brand.

A spokeswoman for Dior would not comment further on Rihanna’s new involvement with the company. The spokeswoman spoke on condition of anonymity because company policy does not allow her to be publicly named.

The bold, Barbados-born Rihanna is a regular at fashion shows from New York to Paris.
