Rihanna reveals date of second star-studded Savage x Fenty show




Rihanna has announced that the second fashion show of her Savage x Fenty lingerie brand will be broadcast via Amazon Prime on October 2 and will feature a diverse cast of celebrities, musicians and models.

In an Instagram post published on Thursday, the entertainer and entrepreneur revealed a short video accompanied by the caption “#SAVAGEXFENTYSHOW VOL. 2! It’s going down Oct. 2 on @amazonprimevideo!”

The video shows the singer making backstage preparations for the show in a facemask and face shield, before the words “Y’all ain’t ready” flash across the screen, followed by “Savage not sorry.”

The clip also reveals that the show will feature performances from Travis Scott, Rosalía, Miguel, Bad Bunny, Mustard, Roddy Ricch, and Ella Mai.

On top of this, the video provides an extensive list of other celebrities who will be featuring in the show, including singer Lizzo, actress Demi Moore, and models Cara Delevingne, Bella Hadid, Willow Smith, Christian Combs, Irina Shayk, Paloma Elsesser and Miss 5th Ave.

Socialite Paris Hilton will also be taking part, along with rappers Big Sean, Rico Nasty and Chika, singers Normani and Erika Jayne, actress Laura Harrier, and RuPaul’s Drag Race-winning drag queens Shea Couleé and Jaida Essence Hall.

The show follows on from the first Savage x Fenty show in September 2019, which saw a diverse cast of models and other celebrities take to the runway in spectacular fashion to reveal the label’s second collection.

With its emphasis on diversity, the show was favorably received by critics and fans alike, who contrasted the event’s inclusive approach with the famous lingerie fashion shows hosted by Victoria´s Secret, a brand facing mounting criticism for its super-sexualized image and narrow definition of beauty, which many felt were outdated.

No further details have been provided about the second runway outing for Savage x Fenty, but even a summary glance at its cast suggests that inclusivity will once again be a key focus of the event, which is shaping up to be another runway spectacular from the brand.
