Rihanna is no ordinary lingerie designer – so her Savage x Fenty show was no ordinary runway. The singer took her lingerie line to New York Fashion Week and blew everyone away with the variety of models on the runway – including two heavily pregnant women. Slick Woods has long been a muse for Rihanna, starring in campaigns for Fenty Beauty and her Puma collaboration, and she wasn’t about to miss out on the Savage x Fenty show just because she’s due to give birth to her first baby in a matter of weeks. The 22-year-old showed off her huge baby bump in one of the raciest looks on the runway – a kinky body harness teamed with nipple pasties and thigh-high embroidered stockings.
Proving that pregnancy doesn’t stand in the way of looking totally badass, Slick rocked the skimpy lingerie, a black headband and purple make-up as she stomped down the runway in heels. Hot mama doesn’t begin to cover it. Slick wasn’t the only mum-to-be on the catwalk, which was covered in ‘grass’ and lined with trees, plants and flowers. Another member of the cast wore a plunging sheer bodysuit that showed off her blossoming bump, with the highly flexible model performing a yoga-inspired routine. Bella and Gigi Hadid were also enlisted for Riri’s show, with Bella working a baby blue bra and garter combo with a matching fur coat and feathered headpiece.
Meanwhile, her sister Gigi looked like some designer-clad forest nymph in a green frilled bra with neckline detailing, matching indies and a cloak. The diverse runway cast featured models of all shapes, sizes and races, with some models baring bright tattoos in the barely-there underwear. The line-up included Duckie Thot, Joan Smalls, Raisa Flowers, Paloma Elsesser, Leomie Anderson, Carissa Pinkston, Jazzelle Zanaughtti and Indira Scott.
At the end of the show, Rihanna came out in a ruched brown dress, which showed off her Savage x Fenty underwear through its semi-sheer material. Get that promo, girl. Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie line has been a big hit thanks to its diverse sizing (well, in comparison to most celeb lines) – bras extend from 32A to 44DD, while underwear goes from XS to 3X.
