Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty: Everything We Know About The NYFW Show And Lingerie Collection

And, how you – yes, you – can watch it and buy the collection

Despite arriving in the city with just a teeny tiny yellow bag earlier this week, Rihanna has successfully pulled off another Savage X Fenty New York Fashion Week show and made it one of the most exclusive and talked-about events of the season.

The show took place in Brooklyn on Tuesday 10 September and, at the moment, is currently shrouded in secrecy. According to The Guardian, guests were required to leave their phones in sealed pouches and few official photos of the catwalk have been released.


Last year, for her debut show, Rihanna was praised for including a healthy – and much needed – dose of body, racial and gender diversity in her internet-dominating lush jungle setting. Shortly afterwards, she released her collection of white lace bralettes, bodysuits and silk camisole dresses.

Though there is limited information, we’ve got a peak of the A-List attendees and models at the show, plus the scoop on how we can all watch it.

Here’s everything we know about what went down this year…

What happened at the 2019 Savage X Fenty show?

Being a triple threat herself, Rihanna chose to cast dancers and actors as well as models to showcase her AW19 collection at the Barclays Centre.

ELLE UK cover star Cara Delevingne – who we’re more accustomed to seeing on TV screens than catwalks in 2019 – returned to the runway for her good friend Rihanna, modelling a green lace look and exuding serious domatrix vibes (complete with a heart-shaped paddle).

Alek Wek, Joan Smalls, Laverne Cox and Normani also strutted walked the set as did 21 Savage and Christian Combs (P Diddy’s son).

In the few photos of the show which have been released, the venue was transformed into a movie-like city setting with eighties-style pink and blue neon lights. There were peep-show-esque windows with models wearing Savage X Fenty in each one, while others took their place on different levels of the impressive set.

This wasn’t just a straightforward fashion show, either. Rihanna delivered a musical performance alongside an impressive line-up of artists including Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, Fat Joe, Fabolous and Tierra Whack.

The show was created and executively produced by Rihanna and the collection features embellished details, ‘daring’ playsuits and more inclusive sizing ranging from 32A-42H and XS-3X.

Who attended the Savage X Fenty 2019 show?

After the guest of honour – Rihanna, obviously – walked the black-coloured carpet, the step-and-repeat shots released by the makers of the show indicate a roster of A-List guests who were all keen to see the singer’s latest lingerie collection.

Delevingne was joined by girlfriend Ashley Benson at the runway presentation, and, taking a break from walking in numerous shows this fashion week, a glowingly pregnant Ashley Graham, as well as Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Past and present big names in music were there too like Halsey, Kacey Musgraves, Hailee Steifeld, Kehlani and rapper Fat Joe.

Rihanna’s muse Slick Woods – who went into labour shortly after walking last year’s show – also attended, as did models Joan Smalls, Chanel Iman, Iskra Lawrence and Halima Aden.
