Rhianna’s lingerie line SavageXFenty made it’s debut at NewYork Fashion Week this year, and while it featured catwalk staples like Bellaand Gigi Hadid, Rhianna essentially put off the most diverse fashion show of all time.
People are calling it the anti-Victoria’s Secret fashion show, because Rhi had women of all body types and skin colors on stage, including two pregnant models (Slick Woods actually walked the show in early labor!!!)
While Victoria’s Secret’s famous fashion show exclusively displays one particular body type and has only recently gotten pretty diverse with its racial casting, Rhianna’s SavaegXFenty show did something unheard of: it showcased women in lingerie FOR women!
None of these women were put on display to please the male gaze, but rather they were put there to show real women how they would look in this lingerie and how it would flatter their bodies, regardless of size, race, or pregnancy.
While Victoria’s Secret presents a fantasy, Rhianna’s lingerie line presented a reality, and that reality was new and inspiring and beautiful.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Rhianna has taken over the beauty game with her inclusion of all women. Her make-up line boasted over 40 foundation shades, which is incredibly rare amongst major make-up brands. So, if you’re someone who thought Rhianna was just a pretty face and hot bod who put out the occasional catchy tune, you should probably think again, because girl is seriously changing the beauty and fashion game and I am super here for it.
