Rihanna debuted her “Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 Show” last night, and we’ve put together a gallery of the night’s most memorable looks.
Rihanna always delivers, and her second annual Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 2 defied all expectations viewers already had for extravagance. Gone are the days when only sex sells, as demonstrated by the steady and slow demise of Rih’s lingerie rival Victoria’s Secret, who lived (and died) by the idea that there is an unchanging standard of beauty. Instead, Rih has revolutionized old notions of mainstream beauty by displaying it in all its guises: models of all races, body types, and genders posing and strutting down the runway in a remarkably minority-majority display. The show was charming, impressive, and most of all, one of the most diverse and inclusive productions to hit the mainstream fashion scene since, well, ever.
Featuring live musical performances from Miguel, Big Sean, Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, Ella Mai, Rosalia, Mustard and Roddy Rich, the star-studded performance was nothing short of an iconic concert / fashion show mix. It’s safe to say that Rih is setting the tone for not just other lingerie brands, but for the rest of the fashion industry as a whole, who would do well to heed and follow suit while the rest of us marvel at the impeccable union of sensuality of the tycoon. , storytelling and body positivity.
Rihanna’s show and the legion of looks featured in it were a blessing to our eyes, and while every ensemble that made its way onto the runway was near perfect, we’ve narrowed it down and rounded up our favorites below.
It’s no coincidence that any lingerie fashion house that has Bella Hadid on their team is probably the top-ranked lingerie fashion house as well. The 23-year-old former Victoria’s Secret angel looked stunned in an all-black lace and latex ensemble, sporting a unique take on a ’60s ruffle hairstyle.
A longtime advocate for self-expression, Willow Smith and Savage X Fenty are a match made in heaven. Delivering everything we could have asked for and more, the 19-year-old singer took to the runway wearing a black satin blouse, black fishnet tights, and even a black Doc Martens platform.
This list would not be complete without including Rih herself. The designer donned not one, not two, but three amazing outfits throughout the night; First, an all-black leather look that she pulled off at the start of the show, revealing nothing but lingerie underneath. Then a purple flower outfit, giving it fairy vibes of ethereal nature, and lastly, another all-black outfit, this one with a see-through polka dot mesh and ruffles on the ruffles to close the show.
Diddy’s son Christian, Rih’s collaborator on their newly launched Savage X Fenty menswear capsule collection, walked the runway dressed in all-black satin.
Miguel’s wife and certified dime piece Nazanin Mandi wowed in an embellished emerald green ensemble, complete with green latex thighs and above-the-elbow gloves. Shit from the Garden of Eden.
No stranger to owning her sexuality at any age, actress Demi Moore was a perfect fit for Rihanna’s fashion show, making her look sultry dressed in black and leggings.
Fans ate every moment of the show, taking to Twitter to express their amazement at the show, noting their favorite celebrity appearances, and even making jokes about Fenty’s newly established menswear line.
