The perks of mega-celebrity are too numerous to list; you can get into any restaurant you want without a reservation, boxes of free stuff arrive at your door every day, you've got enough money that you could quit on the spot and never work again. If you're Rihanna, it means that not only do the world's biggest designers give you their wares for free, but some of them also include a personalized note, right on your new Dior bag.
Rihanna's first ad campaign as the face of the Christian Dior Be Dior Bag recently debuted online, so it's no surprise that she's been photographed carrying one of the new bags frequently; some sort of requirement like that is woven in to most celebrity endorsement contracts. Because of Rihanna's prodigious social media presence, though, we got a look at a detail that would otherwise be entirely hidden from the public.
Over the weekend, Rihanna Instagram'd interior shot of her new Dior bag that you see above, sporting a Sharpie'd message from none other than Dior creative director Raf Simons. Getting a piece signed by a designer is rare indeed, although brands with particularly slavish followings hold events that allow VIPs to get this treatment on occasion. For Rihanna, though, it's just another perk.
