This is the time to wipe out the body shame in various ways. 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. Her runway show featured women of a variety of races and body sizes, two of whom were visibly pregnant. The singer hopes her collection will encourage “confidence and strength”. Models who weren’t even part of the show celebrated the singer for breaking the fashion rules.
“Other designers need to take notes,” tweeted model Justice Biticon. “She created a lingerie line for all shapes, colours and sizes and put women of all shapes, colours and sizes on the runway. Beauty queen and model Flaviana Matata also agreed, tweeting: “Rihanna is the Queen of diversity and inclusion.” Here are just some of the famous faces who were on the runway.
The Australian model will also take part in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show later this year. Rihanna’s spoken about the need for different sizes to be celebrated. In June, she told Vogue: “I’m not built like Victoria’s Secret girl, and I still feel very beautiful and confident in my lingerie.”
