Having just accepted the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year Award from Harvard University, Rihanna was the highlight of the Dior fashion show during Paris fashion week. The singer attended the fashion show wearing a black coat and a matching black leather beret, which made its official debut during the show itself.
Far from being the only celebrity in attendance, fellow Dior fans Sienna Miller, Kate Moss, Uma Thurman, Rosamund Pike, and Alicia Keys were also at the fashion show. The new line explored a variety of outfits, including denim overalls and bustier ballgowns. The new collection is mostly navy blue.

Rihanna is very much involved in fashion, with a fashion range of her own with Armani the debuted in November 2011. She was also the face of the spring/summer 2014 campaign of the French fashion house Balmain. Her role as the face of Dior was announced in March 2015, and collaborated with them on a line of sunglasses which debuted on Instagram.
“Fashion has always been my defense mechanism,” she once said to the Associated Press, going on to say that though there are rules when it comes to fashion, “rules are meant to be broken.”
Rihanna was recognized as Humanitarian of the Year for her charity work, including scholarships through her Clara Lionel Foundation and the creation of a breast cancer treatment center in her hometown of Bridgetown, Barbados. In her acceptance speech, she talked about wanting to help children, having grown up watching commercials featuring children in need on the television.
“What the little girl watching those commercials didn’t know is that you don’t have to be rich to be a humanitarian. You don’t have to be rich to help somebody.”
