Lots of celebrities use body doubles in commercials and films. But it sparks headlines when troubled singer Rihhanna does it for a huge advertising campaign.
According to British tabloid The Sun, Rihanna’s camp hired a body double for her Armani campaign to give RiRi’s boyish, drug-addled body the appearance of being fuller and more feminine.
The sexy singer is seen in the Armani ad having a nightmare in bed before slipping on some jeans. But shots which appear to show Rihanna, 24, revealing her bust and bum are in fact model Jahnassa Aicken.
Jahnassa, 27, signed an order banning her from talking about the job. But a source told us: “Jahnassa’s torso, body and bum appear in parts of the ad.
“It’s shocking Rihanna wanted one considering she loves posing with no clothes, plus she’s in great shape.”
The Belfast-based Style Academy agency booked Jahnassa, who received a “modest sum” for the shoot.
She was first spotted by Rihanna’s people in a crowd during shooting of the star’s We Found Love video in Northern Ireland. They used her as a stand-in — before she was cast in the Armani ads.
An Advertising Standards Authority spokesman said: “If we have complaints consumers have been misled by the use of a body double, we will investigate.”
