Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur Ad Censored in Kuwait



Rihanna's uncensored Reb’l Fleur ad

A newspaper ad for Rihanna’s popular fragrance Reb’l Fleur has seemingly been censored in the Middle East because the singer shows too much skin.

In the original version of the promo that ran in the United States (left), the cherry-topped Nivea spokesperson is seen seductively sniffing a flower while wearing a pastel robe that opens to flash a little flesh.

But Rihanna—who recently posed for Rolling Stone in derriere-baring chain-mail Daisy Dukes—seems to have suddenly turned shy for the Kuwaiti edition of the ad, in which her robe mysteriously appears closed, likely with the help of Photoshop. It is believed the ad was doctored to appeal to women in the mostly Muslim state.

As of yet, neither the singer nor Parlux Fragrances, which produces Reb’l Fleur, have commented on the cover-up. In the meantime, the people of Kuwait better brace themselves for the next installment: Rihanna just announced that she has a second scent in the works.

The entertainer isn’t the only one whose ad was recently altered: Gisele Bündchen’s H&M campaign was tweaked for Dubai.
