Today (Sept. 17), the singer took to social media to announce that her annual Savage X Fenty show will premiere on Oct. 2. Much like her past show, the event, which will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime, will combine fashion and music.
Models Bella Hadid, Big Sean, Cara Delevingne, Christian Combs, Normani, Paloma Elsesser, Lizzo, Demi Moore, Paris Hilton, Rico Nasty and Willow Smith are slated to walk the runway this year. As they debut pieces from her Fall 2020 collection, fans can also expect to see performances from Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, Ella Mai, Miguel, Mustard, Roddy Ricch and Rosalía. Rihanna, the executive producer and creative director of Savage X Fenty show, will most likely make an appearance as well.
Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty show has been praised for its inclusion of all kinds of people. In the intro to last year’s event, Rihanna explained her decision to ensure her lingerie catered to different body types. “Every woman deserves to feel sexy. We are sexy, we are multi-faceted and I want women to embrace that to the fullest,” she said. In terms of how she casts her models, she added, “I’m looking for unique characteristics in people that aren’t usually highlighted in the world of fashion as it pertains to lingerie and sexy, or what society sees as sexy.”
Rihanna has been working hard despite her absence from the public eye. Her Clara Lionel Foundation has donated millions to various charities assisting with Coronavirus relief efforts, and she has reportedly teamed up with Amazon for a highly anticipated documentary that will take viewers “on a journey through private insights into Rihanna’s personality and humor, philosophies on work, family and love that are both moving and inspirational.”
