Rihanna To Light Up UNICEF's 2008 Snowflake

Rihanna To Light Up UNICEF's 2008 Snowflake

Rihanna keeps bundled up as she arrives at JFK airport in New York City after a flight from Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Later today (November 19), the 20-year-old Bajan beauty and Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini will light the UNICEF Snowflake at New York City’s Grand Army Plaza. Rihanna is also the global representative of the 2008 Gucci Campaign to Benefit UNICEF, which also launches worldwide today.

At 23 feet in diameter, over 28 feet in height and weighing 3,300 pounds, the UNICEF Snowflake is the largest outdoor chandelier of its kind. It’s adorned with 16,000 Baccarat crystal prisms and is a reminder of UNICEF’s commitment to do whatever it takes to save a child.

Ne-Yo will perform live during the ceremony before watching Rihanna and Frida flip the switch to illuminate the magnificent Snowflake, signifying the beginning of the gift-giving season.

    ….She does have beautiful eyes, maybe the loveliest I’ve ever seen, but she needs a slew of makeup artists to make her pretty.
