Ahead of the release of Rihanna’s 2020 Savage x Fenty Fashion Show on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 2, we’re taking a look back at the highlights from last year’s show in NYC.
Things are going to look a bit different during Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the show must go on, and RiRi, along with other stars and models, will be hitting the runway to show off the singer’s latest lingerie collection. In honor of the show, which airs on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 2, we’re going to take a trip down memory lane to what went down in 2019!
At the 2019 show, which took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Sept. 10, 2019, Rihanna debuted her Fall/Winter 2019 Savage x Fenty collection. The show was jam-packed with surprises and performances. Rihanna opened up the show when she hit the stage looking unbelievably sexy in a skintight, sheer black bodysuit, which was covered in a subtle cage pattern with long sleeves and pants.
Underneath the one-piece, RiRi rocked a black bra that showed some major skin, while she chose to wear a tiny black velvet sarong mini skirt on top. She topped her look off with black leather gloves, dazzling diamond bracelets and earrings, pointy-toed black pumps, and a sexy bright red lip. RiRi stood on top of a giant white platform in the center of the stage while a bunch of dancers stood on platforms surrounding her wearing skintight sheer black bodysuits with lace details on the bodice.
Aside from Rihanna’s runway look, Cara Delevingne also hit the stage in head-to-toe neon green. The model threw on a tiny skintight green lace dress, which was completely see-through and featured an underwire bra. She paired the mini dress with thigh-high sheer green socks which featured the same caged pattern, matching over-the-elbow gloves, and a super high, sleek ponytail. While Cara was modeling, a row of other models sat next to her in different green lingerie looks from the collection with white Fenty X Puma sneakers.
While Cara was modeling, 21 Savage, Joan Smalls, and Laverne Cox were also on stage, showing off the new styles from the collection, all while Big Sean and A$AP Ferg performed the songs, “Clique” and “Bezerk.” Other performances at the show came from Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Fabolous, Tierra Whack and more. While the models were made up of a combination of people including Gigi Hadid, 24, who led the first walk, Aquaria, Bella Hadid, Christian Combs, Normani, Slick Woods, and many more.
Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Show was also presented by Amazon Prime Video and streamed exclusive on the service ten days after the live show. Scroll through the gallery above to see photos from the event!
