You can watch the show on September 20 as it will be broadcast on Amazon Prime. Guests asked not to take pictures of the spectacle or post on social media which is not typical for a fashion show, but this is Rihanna.
As the lights went up, the star and her dancers of all shapes and sizes created a formation of shapes similar to the poster image the film Susperia before breaking out their moves.
The show opened with a choreographed dance from Rihanna herself, draped in black lace and dropping characteristically fierce moves. Watch a tiny snippet via the video below.
Models – who were of different ethnicities, sizes and shapes – didn’t simply walk along a runway.
Choreographed by famed dancer Parris Goebel, they twerked, stomped and danced their way through the show in a way that was clearly designed to entertain the masses, not just the fashion crowd.
The show performances by Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, Fat Joe, Fabolous and Tierra Whack.
In the star-studded crowd were Kacey Musgraves, Diplo, Kehlani, Dascha Polanco, Luka Sabbat, Iskra Lawrence, Sabrina Elba, Saweetie, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Quincy Brown, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Hailee Steinfeld, G-Eazy and Vanessa Hudgens.
