Rihanna just signed a reported seven-figure deal with Puma to be the brand's creative director and global brand ambassador. According to Harper's Bazaar, the superstar will design Puma's womenswear line, including footwear, apparel, and accessories. Rihanna will also star in Puma's ad campaigns for fall and winter 2015.
The Rihanna-Puma deal was rumored last month; it's reported that the star visited the Puma offices in Germany this week to discuss the brand's general direction.
