Rihanna, the internationally-acclaimed songstress who has won millions of fans with her smash hit “S.O.S.” and charming persona, is joining the CoverGirl family. The 18-year-old star joins the ranks of CoverGirls including Queen Latifah, Molly Sims, Christie Brinkley and Keri Russell. Rihanna will shoot her first CoverGirl ads this December for a nationwide launch in summer 2007. Rihanna’s debut album “Music of the Sun,” which she co-wrote with renowned music producer Evan Rogers and his partner Carl Sturken, was released in August 2005. Her world renowned second album, “A Girl Like Me,” featuring “S.O.S.” and her follow-up single “Unfaithful” has established her among today’s top artists. Through it all, Rihanna has managed to stay grounded and strives for her music to be a personal conversation with girls her age — reflecting their triumphs, complexities and struggles. Rihanna is now working on her third album which is set for release in 2007. “Rihanna’s natural beauty and musical talents make her a perfect fit for CoverGirl. She is the latest in a long line of CoverGirls such as Queen Latifah, Faith Hill and Brandy to reinforce the brand’s heritage in music,” said Gina Drosos, Vice President and General Manager of Global Cosmetics, Procter & Gamble Beauty. “Rihanna is a talented, confident young woman who exemplifies the CoverGirl ideals with her inner confidence and fresh beauty. We’re proud to welcome her to the CoverGirl family.” “I’ve loved makeup and dreamed of being a CoverGirl since I was a little girl,” said Rihanna. “Growing up, my mother was a makeup artist and I was fascinated watching her apply lipcolor, blush and mascara. Now I get to be surrounded by all of my favorites from CoverGirl!” Since its introduction in 1961, CoverGirl has helped launch numerous modeling careers and was one of the first brands to link models’ names and faces with a product. The long list of famous CoverGirl models includes Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Rachel Hunter, Tyra Banks, Niki Taylor and Molly Sims, and the brand is known for consistently signing models who embody both inner and outer beauty, such as current spokesmodel Queen Latifah.
