Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty fashion show is diversity done the right way

178

Rihanna’s core mission across her brands is to make sure that everyone feels included, and she’s doing just that.

Her 2020 Savage X Fenty fashion show was one for the books, and she managed to take diversity to new levels. Aside from featuring a variety of women and men from multiple races and ethnicities as models, she had all shapes and sizes included in her show as well.

Alief native Lizzo had the privilege of walking in the namesake lingerie.

In an interview with Elle, Rihanna expressed the importance of all women being able to feel sexy in her lingerie line: “You, me, trans women, women of all sizes, paraplegic women, all women are important women! All women belong here, on the biggest platform I can give them.”

Twitter was in agreement: no one does diversity quite like Rihanna.

When you think about it, how mad is it that it took a Black woman creating a make up brand in 2017 for these brands to release proper shades for Black people. 2017!!!?!?!!!
