Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing insists it was only fitting to have Rihanna model the new collection, because the line was inspired by the "icon."

He adds, "In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world. When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete."
