Rihanna has praised 'Queen' Naomi Campbell after the supermodel gave the popstar's Fenty X Puma collection the ultimate seal of approval. The Work hit maker couldn't hide her appreciation after the statuesque beauty modelled her designs in a recent Vogue Italia editorial.

Campbell, who is the face of the 2016 fall collection for FENTY by puma campaign, sports key pieces including thigh-high lace boots, sleeve-shirts, graphic hoodies, as well as a new pair of creepers.

In a gushing message posted to her Instagram, Rihanna said: "What a delight to see this beautiful Queen in my designs for @VogueItalia! This is a crazy feeling man!"

She went on to reveal that as a huge fan of Campbell she felt honoured to have her seal of approval: "@iamnaomicampbell From the very first moment in your career, you've touched and inspired so many young girls all over the world! I was one of them, and to see this come full circle is a trip to say the least!"

And it would appear that the pair have struck up a close bond, with RiRi revealing that the 46-year-old catwalk icon will always makes time for her regardless of her busy schedule, "just to send me vitamins and facial products, or even tanning oil for my vacation lol!!! That's why these photos mean so much more to me, you're a True beauty, One love!"

Rihanna continued to flood her Instagram with black and white images from the campaign which showed Campbell in an array of accolade-worthy poses.
