Rihanna Brought Millennial Pink Mountains To The Runway For Her Fenty x Puma Show

Published

on

Once again, Rihanna has returned to NYFW to debut another Fenty x Puma collection. The pop star is making inroads in fashion with an impressive show combining motocross stunts and colourful surf aesthetics. It takes a lot to get the fashion crowd properly revved up at a catwalk show, but Rihanna pulled it off at her Fenty x Puma show in New York on Sunday night.

It wasn’t the clothes that had the style press on the edge of their seats as much as the preamble, during which a team of motocross stunt performers vroomed up ramps and were propelled into the air to perform somersaults, flips and other seemingly impossible tricks. The striking set, which comprised towering spot-lit dunes of glittering pink sand, added to the drama.

There were cycling shorts and wader-like overalls, bum bags, zip-up tops, wetsuits, high-heeled Puma-branded flip-flops and thigh-high boots which looked somewhere between Pretty Woman and a pair of galoshes.

Check the complete collection below!

    

There was a preponderance of swimming suits confirming one of the oddest microtrends from New York fashion week so far: that of wearing swimsuits with very high-cut legs beneath shorts and skirts, with a few inches of bare skin left visible at the hip.

Logos ran down arms and across chests, many of them saying “since 1988” which – as might be guessed – is the year Rihanna was born.

The pop star said in a statement the clothes were “a mix between two worlds: motocross and surf. It was a challenge to bring them together but it ended up being the perfect combination.”

Rihanna is one of a handful of celebrities with huge social media followings making inroads in fashion (see also Beyoncé, Kanye West and Justin Bieber) while traditional entertainment industry revenues decline.

Whatever you think about that shift, in terms of representation, Rihanna is certainly a force for good. Not only were the models at the show ethnically diverse and exuberant but, on the preceding Friday, she launched her own beauty line, which, with 40 shades of foundation, is once of the most inclusive beauty ranges ever.

Rihanna also knows how to make an exit. At the end of the show, rather than the customary bow, she appeared, resplendent in retina-searing green, and did a lap of honour on the back of a motorbike.

After the fashion show Rihanna celebrated her new collection preview at an afterparty.

2018 MET Gala – Rihanna Reigns With Pope-Inspired Dress

Published

By

On the first Monday of May celebrities gather at MET to celebrate the annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. This year’s theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination might feel as a challenge to some – but not Rihanna who didn’t fail to impress!

She wore a white beaded Margiela corset mini dress under a full skirt, with a beaded bishop’s hat to match. The outfit was accessorized with a pearl anklet and a bejeweled crucifix necklace.

The singer, who was co-hosting the gala with Anna Wintour, Donatella Versace and Amal Clooney, and has earned a reputation for being among the best-dressed — if not the very best — every year. In the weeks, days and hours leading up to the gala, the internet was bubbling with anticipation about what the singer, fashion designer and star of the upcoming coming Met Gala heist movie, “Ocean’s 8,” would wear.
