Following her Super Bowl halftime performance, Rihanna’s reign continues with a new Fenty ad featuring married former beauty queens Miss Argentina and Miss Puerto Rico.

Mariana Varela from Argentina and Fabiola Valentín from Puerto Rico revealed in November that they got married after keeping their relationship private. The former beauty queens are now helping to introduce Rihanna’s beauty brand’s new perfume, Fenty Eau de Parfum.

The spot tells the love story of how they met in Thailand while competing in the miss grand international beauty contest.

In voiceover and against the backdrop of a series of romantic shots, the two talk about how they were «inseparable» when they first hooked up despite competing with each other and how they bonded over the little things, «like We like our coffee.»

The couple share intimate moments, such as holding hands while walking on the beach, hugging, sharing a hammock and stealing kisses. They describe how their «beautiful friendship» continues to grow as wives and how «magical» it is to find someone like that in life.

Towards the end of the ad, the couple describe the new perfume as having a «woody vibe» and «sweet but soft at the same time.» «Do you like it?» Varela asks as she leans in to kiss him. “Yes,” Valentín says, laughing softly. “A lot,” he continues as the Fenty logo appears.

Valentin wrote on Instagram about how special it was to work for the brand and described the experience as “beautiful when two bodies come together with love”.

One commenter wrote that their love story needs to be written in a book, vowing to buy it. Another commenter wrote: “Love this. Someone needs to do a series about their love,» and another wrote: «OMG! I get goosebumps!! What a beautiful way to start my day.”

Varela and Valentín were married in October in Puerto Rico. Same-sex marriage has been legal in Puerto Rico, a US territory, since 2015 as a result of the US Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. It is also legal in Varela’s home country of Argentina.
