Rihanna Had An Epic Fashion Show! Something Fresh And New...Diversity!
Rihanna wasn't subtle with sending the message of female empowerment at NYFW. The singer debuted her Savage x Fenty 2018 Fall collection. All types of women of different shapes, sizes and races walked the runway. They were covered in sexy lace, lingerie. The fashion show was more of a performance piece, as dancers and models ran and danced across a grassy runway.
Gigi and Bella Hadid were among some of the models that walked the runway. These seasoned models looked out of place and old-fashioned next to the other models strutting their stuff down the runway.
In an interview with E! bad girl RiRi talked about celebrating women's bodies.
"Women are the strongest people on earth. Our bodies alone are made to do so many different things and they're designed in so many different, unique ways. It is about time that we celebrate that."
Diversity is certainly a majority part of everything Rihanna does. Her Fenty Beauty collection was popular mainly because it launched 40 shades of foundation, which isn't common in many makeup brands. Many makeup brands don't have foundation shades for women of color and because Fenty Beauty was such a hit many makeup brands followed Fenty Beauty and created more foundation shades for Black women.
“Women should be wearing lingerie for their damn selves,”Rihanna told Vogue in May. “I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light. You don’t have to stick to one personality with lingerie; it’s fun to play around. You can be cute and playful one week and a black widow next week.”
