On Sept. 10, Rihanna hosted her Savage X Fenty fashion show in support of New York City’s fashion week. For fans who weren’t in attendance, the show is available for viewing on Amazon.
The show included guest appearances from many including models Alek Wek, Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, actress Laverne Cox, singer Normani, DJ Khaled and more. During an interview with Elle, Riri revealed why she chose the “Motivation” singer to partake in her latest fashion venture.
“I wanted to highlight women who are powerful,” she said. “To me, power in whatever way you master it is very sexy. And with someone like Normani, you know, she’s an incredible dancer, and dance is athleticism. Dance is powerful. It would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to have that kind of beauty and power in the show.”
Following the show’s release on Amazon, the Navy has expressed their excitement. “IT’S NOT JUST A FASHION SHOW BUT A WHOLE FESTIVAL OF WOMEN’S POWER, BODY ACCEPTANCE, POSITIVITY AND INCLUSIVITY AND A RIHANNA’S FRIGGIN SAVAGE FENTY SHOW!!!
#SavageXFentyShow,” one user wrote. Another added, I’m actually speechless. giving the girls a run for their money n telling them to step UP their fashion show presentations. thank you for setting the bar...AGAIN @rihanna.”
In addition to the show streaming, Rihanna’s lingerie line will also be sold on Amazon Prime. Throughout her career, the singer has seen a ton of success. Back in June, Rihanna reportedly became the richest woman in music with a net worth of $600 million.
More recently, the Barbardian singer signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. “I’m proud to have known Rihanna since the beginning of her career,” said Sony’s chairman, Jon Platt, regarding the news. “Music, fashion, philanthropy and a heart of gold have solidified Rihanna’s position as one of the biggest icons in the world. It is an honor to be reunited with her at Sony/ATV.”
