Shot by Steven Klein in Versailles and styled by Rihanna regular Mel Ottenberg, it is the fourth installment of the Secret Garden campaign, which launched in 2012.

The star wore outfits from the Esprit Dior collection first shown in Tokyo in December 2014.

WWD reported that Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano said: “In this short movie, [Rihanna] knew how to work with Versailles. She has this kind of elegance — we saw it from the very first moment — and then she can surprise. She can be unexpected and we like it. It’s part of this personality.”

When it was first announced that Rihanna would be modelling for the brand, she told MTV News: "'It feels fantastic. It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color.

"I think, to be acknowledged by Dior is just, it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, and elegant, and timeless."

A behind-the-scenes clip also acts as the teaser for the singer's new single A Night.
