Rihanna Rides High at Fenty x Puma Show
Rihanna took her fashion to new heights as she debuted her spring 2018 Fenty x Puma collection during a jaw-dropping show at New York Fashion Week on Sunday (Sept. 10).
After bringing Fenty University to Paris Fashion Week, Bad Gal turned her return to NYFW into a motocross extravaganza. It was fitting, given that her latest collection also pulls inspiration from the X Games.
As models, including Kaia Gerber, Slick Woods, Joan Smalls, and Adriana Lima, walked the runway in scuba suits, track pants, and moto jackets at Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory, freestyle motocross racers pulled off daredevil stunts over giant mounds of pink sand.
For the finale, RiRi rode out on the back of a dirt bike, blowing kisses to those in attendance, including fellow celebs like Cardi B, Offset, Pharrell Williams, Tinashe, Ty Dolla $ign, Diplo, Big Sean, Jhené Aiko, A$AP Ferg, Whoopi Goldberg, Fabolous, Lil Mama, and more.
After the show, Rihanna thanked the bikers for their assistance. “When the X-Games come to fashion week,” she wrote. “Thank you guys for making this show the best one yet! I feel like the coolest bitch on the block now!”
Just last week, Rihanna launched her Fenty Beauty line, which has earned acclaim for its diverse and inclusive qualities. Models wore the newly-released beauty line at the Fenty x Puma show as well.
