Throwback: Rihanna Celebrates Nivea’s 100 Year Anniversary

In 2011 Rihanna was the face of Nivea and to celebrate the skincare brand’s 100th anniversary she took part in a short promotional tour around Europe. On each stop Rihanna performed her single California King Bed, which was used in Nivea’s commercials that year. Here’s a look at what she wore on two of the those stops.
