Celebs Praise Rihanna For Stunning & Inclusive Savage X Fenty New York Fashion Week Show! – Perez HiltonSeptember 14, 2019
Rihanna just dropped the mic on New York Fashion Week!
The singer-turned-designer blew the audience away at her Savage x Fenty show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday night. In an era where designers are consistently looking for new ways to make their collections stand out, the Fenty Beauty creator went above and beyond to display her new line in a way that’s got everyone talking!
Based on reported firsthand accounts from the show (no phones were allowed!), we can tell you the 40-minute production was more of an immersive, artistic experience as opposed to the traditional catwalk. Rih and a crew of dancers, all decked out in sexy lingerie, hit the stage and kicked things off with a seductive number on elevated platforms.
Keeping with the trend of musical performances at fashion shows, the night continued with entertainment from Big Sean and A$AP Ferg, Migos, DJ Khaled and Fat Joe, Tierra Whack, and Fabolous. Recent MTV VMA winner Normani was also in the building and put on another electric display of talent by leading a dance crew between sets.
Feeling major FOMO? Us too!
See, the Savage x Fenty show really stood out from the rest by keeping its creator’s passion for inclusivity at the forefront. Models included recognizable faces like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Alek Wek and Joan Smalls. But, the runway was also stacked with real people of different sizes, genders, skin tones, and abilities, proving everyone can enjoy some of the magic Rihanna’s created here with her brand.
One of the biggest statements of the night was made when Halsey graced the stage. As you know, the Bad At Love singer performed at the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and then slammed the production for its lack of diversity the following day. So, including her definitely feels like a big f**k you to the women’s undergarment brand which once dominated the industry.
As we mentioned at the top, everyone else loved it too! See some of the best celebrity reactions to the event on Twitter (below):
