Photos: Rihanna, Naomi Campbell & Iman Pose Together In Show-Stopping Shoot For W Magazine


A triple threat! Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman posed together for a recent article in W Magazine about Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing

Beauty queens from three generations – Rihanna, 26, Naomi Campbell, 44, and Iman, 59 – have posed together for the first time, and the resulting pictures in September’s W Magazine are unsurprisingly beautiful. The trio came together for a story celebrating fashion brand Balmain’s 28-year-old creative director, Olivier Rousteing, who says the three embody his style.  ‘These women are inspiring to so many different people,’ he said. ‘Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward.’ They could pass for sisters!!!

A true inspiration: Mr Rousteing said bringing the three powerhouses together for one shoot represented 'the concept I'm working toward' with the brand

Rihanna Tweeted about the photos earlier today, saying, ‘3 Bad Balmain B*****s.’ She included four hashtags – blackbeauty, threegenerations, legends and Balmain – and W Magazine’s Fashion and Style Director’s handle, edward_enninful.

Iman also posted one of the pictures twice on her Instagram account. In the first one, she said ‘iconic, legendary, black beauties’ in her caption. In the second, which zoomed in on her face, she said ‘I love u [sic] more, olivier_rousteing’ before thanking W Magazine for ‘this epic gathering of fabness.’
