Rihanna Named New Face of Emporio Armani

The sexy star will follow in the footsteps of former Armani models Megan Fox, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo

Rihanna's gorgeous face has been touting beauty products for CoverGirl since 2007, and she recently scored a gig with skincare company Nivea. But now, the Barbados beauty is using her hot body to make some cash.

The 23-year-old Grammy winner has been chosen to be the new celebrity star of the Emporio Armani Underwear and Jeans clothing line. Replacing Megan Fox, Rihanna's autumn/winter campaign will launch in September. According to the company, the print ads have already been shot in New York.

Besides Fox, Rihanna will be following in the footsteps of Armani's former celebrity reps, David and Victoria Beckham, hunky soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and tennis pro Rafael Nadal. And, with a body like hers, we're sure Rihanna's ads will be just as steamy as the former models'.

Last week, RiRi took to her Twitter account to tease the exciting news.

"U would NEVER guess what I’m doing right now!!!" she posted on July 6. "Hint Hint #Armani."
