Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty NYFW show celebrates body diversity

BODY POSITIVE: Rihanna's Savage X Fenty New York Fashion Week show has been praised for its inclusivity

RIHANNA RETURNED to New York Fashion Week with a bang.

The latest collection of the Bajan singer’s lingerie line Savage X Fenty was showcased during a captivating presentation and runway event that was also live streamed on YouTube.

The 30-year-old, who has been praised for her inclusive makeup line, Fenty Beauty, which celebrated its first birthday last week, fed those same values into last night’s fashion show.

Models of varying body shapes and sizes graced the stage in sultry and soft lingerie pieces.

A pregnant Slick Woods was one of two expecting models to walk the runway. Woods’ barely there lingerie sent a strong message about the beauty of pregnancy.

Rihanna took her bow at the end of the show while the models stood holding hands to symbolise solidarity. She wore a sheer brown tube dress and a matching scarf that covered her face, which she soon whipped off to communicate her appreciation of the audience’s support and what we can only assume was her pride at producing such a sensational collection.

Other familiar faces such as Joan Smalls and British model Leomie Anderson, who has worked with Rihanna on the Fenty Beauty campaign and previously modelled Savage X Fenty, were also part of the show. Model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, who have both walked for her Fenty Puma line, also made appearances.

On Twitter, Anderson said: “Rihanna slayed the Savage X Fenty collection!”

And fans of fashion and Bad Gal Riri across the world agreed.

One said: “She just released another bomb ass Fenty Savage collection!”

The entire Savage X Fenty collection is available to shop online now.
