Rihanna poses with supermodels Naomi Campbell and Iman in new shoot

Rihanna has further upped her fashion credentials by appearing in a shoot with supermodels Naomi Campbell and Iman.

The popstar is the star of the latest cover of W magazine, and inside she poses in Balmain alongside the fashion legends.

Naomi took to Instagram to share one of the shots, a close-up of the three superstars.

"@the_real_iman @rihanna @edward_enninful @wmag@olivier_rousteing #blessed #specialmoment #unforgettable #blackgirlsrule," she captioned the snap.

Standing beside the women in another image is Balmain's creative designer Olivier Rousteing.

The 25-year-old is good friends with Rihanna, and the pair are often spotted posing up a storm together on his Instagram account.

Olivier shared some behind-the-scenes shots of the ladies at their shoot.

"THE QUEEN RIHUNION #behindthescene@iamnaomicampbell @the_real_iman #rihanna #legends !!!! Go and get @wmag the icons together for the FIRST Time #timeless #love @edward_enninful#comingsoon," he wrote alongside the snap of the three ladies striking their best poses in signature Balmain pieces.

Revealing the finished product, he wrote, "RIHANNA/NAOMI/IMAN. THE QUEENS THAT MAKE HISTORY #fashionlegend #icon #talent #Queens #balmainarmy #balmaingirls #THANKU@edward_enninful #mostincredibleman".

In the magazine, Rihanna also features solo in a gothic, multi-page spread entitled Eskimo Horro Story, smouldering in dramatic make-up, dark accessories and fur.
