Rihanna isn’t just winning awards for her music. The singer’s smokin’ hot campaign for Emporio Armani has been named the Sexiest Ad of 2011. The Barbadian stunner even beating supermodels Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum to the title.
The 23 year old singer joined forces with the label to promote their underwear and jeans in July. It’s just the start in what’s shaping up to a be a long term partnership. Rihanna has also designed a collection for the popular brand featuring t-shirts, jeans and underwear. It’s been described as ‘positive with a slightly rock feel, fabulously sexy with a strong masculine edge‘.
Emporio Armani has enlisted quite a few celebrities in the last couple of years. David Beckham was a model. Fellow soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo also had a go…as did tennis ace Rafael Nadal. Actress Megan Fox also stripped off for the brand.
Ad Age – who put the list together – say this particular campaign was a standout. ‘It’s Rihanna at her sexiest. She’s never looked this good. She’s in amazing shape and the pictures are stunning.’
