They say, when you follow the rules--you miss all the fun. Who knows this better than singer, designer, director, and style and beauty icon (is there anything she hasn’t yet conquered?); Rihanna? Bad gal RiRi concluded New York Fashion Week with her lingerie show for Savage x Fenty. If you expected it to be anything next to ordinary, then you clearly aren’t aware of how RiRi likes to throw it down with anything she puts her mind to.
A hyrbrid of a performance, concert, catwalk, and most importantly a celebration of women’s beauty, diversity, and abilities--intertwined with sexuality and femininity.
The show caused such a stir of attention because of the underlying message on stage. It had nothing to do with people wearing gorgeous, sexy, see-through lingerie across a huge stage. The runway was the most diverse thing you could imagine. Filled with people of different sizes, shapes, ethnicities, skin colours, genders, pregnant, etc. The runway looked more alive and real than any fashion show you could imagine. The lingerie pieces beautifully complemented all of the different factors on stage. Likewise, all of the pieces she designed were diverse, sexual, comfortable, etc.--but this was what brought all of these different entities together. This was the highlight of the show and like a car accident--you just couldn’t look away.
This isn’t the first time that RiRi has stirred up the fashion industry. Last September, she had a fashion show that defined beauty within the lingerie and fashion industry in a whole new light. Her body-positive, sex-positive, feel-sexy-and-good-no-matter-what, mission is breaking all standards and making the typical brands that project a certain type of “fantasy” to start fantasizing about a whole different perspective.
We love Rihanna’s attitude, mission, and inclusivity that encompasses so many other beautiful women that are so often forgotten and unacknowledged in such a difficult industry such as beauty and fashion. Supercilium stands by you and loves all that you do Ri!
