Rihanna x ELLE Magazine (Short Film)


Rihanna sure is taking her new acting career seriously. The singer-turned-model-turned-actress may making headlines for her unfiltered comments about boyfriend Chris Brown in the May issue of Elle, but RiRi took things one step further and filmed a three-minute short film for the mag to accompany the issue.


The short, which is set in Havana, Cuba in 1956, was shot by Tom Munro and shows the songstress falling in love with Latin dance. RiRi stares at a male dancer from her window in a barely-there white ensemble, while watching and imitating his dance moves.


The short ends with Rihanna arguing with a man in a car (a la “We Found Love”) and is then spotted dancing with the stranger in the streets.


If you were thinking that the uber-chic clothing looks familiar, that’s because RiRi donned the same outfits as her pictorial layout in the mag.
