Songstress and style icon Rihanna collaborated with designer brand Gucci for its newest Tattoo Heart Collection campaign to benefit UNICEF. 25% of sales made from the collection will be donated to support the UNICEF programs that aid orphans and children affected with HIV and AIDS. Rihanna partnered with Creative director Frida Giannini, who designed the collection, for the ads shot this September in Milan. I intuitively believe Rihanna inspired the idea for the tattoo emulated adornments on the accessories since she has a solid collection of her own tats. The double page spread featuring RiRi, fabulously stretched out on what looks like a ring swing (pictured above), appears in the newest issues of Elle and InStyle Magazine.
Here she is draped in a mauve Gucci gown at the Tattoo Heart Collection Launch event this past November.
The collection will be sold from November 19 until January 31, 2009. Take a look at the TATTOO HEART COLLECTION which includes bags, shoes, a necklace and a scarf.
