While we wait for Love on the brain singer Rihanna to release new music, we are keeping a watch on just what the luscious lady is up to. And we got a sneak peek into her ‘other’ world, which is all about what goes into making a woman feel like a zillion bucks. She kicked off a fabulous show on September 10 that displayed her new line of lingerie called Savage x Fenty (just to remind you, Fenty is Rihanna’s real last name). The singer was the opener for the strut through the fabulous set, and led the way for big-name models like Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Alek Wek, and others.
But the best party came from the entertainment. Music was the name of the game and there was LOTS of it. Big Sean and A$AP Ferg did a Clique and Bezerk mashup, Halsey performed her new Graveyard, Migos did Pure water…there was also DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Tierra Whack, Fabolous et al making music, and a host of somebodies who matter on the runway itself, from Normani to Paloma Elsesser.
And don’t fool yourself, this is not a sexy stripshow kind of event. It's a serious business, showing off lingerie that speaks of inclusiveness, confidence and pride. Which is, wethinks, what Rihanna herself is all about, no?
Now get on with it and give us some new music, woman!
Just for a little touch of nostalgia – it seems decades since she gave us anything new – here are 5 of our favourite songs by Rihanna…
