When Rihanna launched her Savage X Fenty lingerie line earlier this year it was praised for its "inclusivity". It's now debuted at New York Fashion Week with a diverse range of models.
Rihanna is no stranger to promoting diversity in the fashion and beauty spheres, but her Savage X Fenty fashion show that streamed live on YouTube Wednesday night might just be her boldest example yet of radical inclusivity.
RiRi’s lingerie collection has already received multiple accolades for its wide range of sizes and diverse “nude” colors, and she kept that inclusivity going with the models she used for her show during New York Fashion Week.
Models of all shapes, sizes, and skin colors rocked the new Savage X Fenty lingerie collection, including two pregnant models who flaunted their baby bumps on the runway.
As images and videos from the show began spreading across social media, fans quickly applauded Rihanna for showing other designers it’s possible to include diverse models in their fashion shows.
The show also included familiar faces such as Bella and Gigi Hadid, Duckie Thot, Paloma Elsesser, and Slick Woods, who was one of the pregnant models stomping the runway. At the end, all models held hands in solidarity while Rihanna took her bows.
