Lessons We Learned From Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Show
A couple of weeks ago, the much awaited volume 2 of Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty show premiered on Amazon Prime. As expected, the show delivered. There were a lot of savageness that was undeniable. Headlined by A-list names like Bella Hadid, Lizzo, Normani and Willow Smith, there was no shortage of beautiful ladies at the show.
It was definitely a sexy show. Leather, fishnets and a lot of sexy Savage X Fenty lingerie made spectacular. According to Rihanna, her goal was to make the show as visually enticing as possible. She definitely hit the mark! But what sets this apart from your typical fashion show is the underlying message of the brand.
Rihanna is queen of self-love and if you are looking for some inspo, look no further! Here are some of the lessons we’ve picked up from the Savage x Fenty show:
All bodies are beautiful
Being a brand that’s all about inclusivity, one of Savage X Fenty’s most important message is that all bodies are beautiful. Skinny, curvy, boxy – you name it, every kind of body is celebrated by the brand. This became such a gamechanger for the fashion industry, especially in the lingerie world, where size zero has been the standard for a long time. RiRi had everyone shook when she first debuted curvy models on her runway show. A clear message from the queen herself – diversity is beautiful!
It’s okay to embrace your sexuality
Another touchy subject in our society that the Savage X Fenty brand is brave enough to tackle is women’s sexuality. Rihanna advocates for women empowering themselves by taking their power back and embracing their sexuality, because there is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling and being sexy. It definitely helps a lot that the Savage X Fenty lingerie pieces are so well-designed to flatter the figure. Anyone will definitely feel sexier in the right kind of lingerie.
Community is important
Savage X Fenty also places importance on the community – a true mark of a great brand. Weeks after the Savage X Fenty show wrapped, the brand launched a brand new campaign in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The stars of the campaign are three black women who are survivors, bravely sharing their stories to the world. A portion of the proceeds of the campaign and the capsule collection will be donated to the Clara Lionel Foundation – a charity founded by Rihanna 2012. The singer has long been giving back to the community, even before she had Fenty.
Use your voice
Your voice matters and you are entitled to use it. Let your opinions be heard! Be loud and proud when you need to be. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman who is speaking out, especially in times of injustice. While Rihanna started out as a singer, she has become so much more because she found her own voice and used it to for good. RiRi is always on the spotlight but she still speaks out about things that matter to her. We love an opinionated queen who is not afraid to speak her mind!
Self-love is key
If there’s one thing that we should all takeaway from Rihanna and her brand is that self-love is important. The messages that the brand preaches – inclusivity, empowerment, fierceness – are all rooted in self-love. If you work on truly loving yourself, it will be much easier to be confident, loud, bold, sexy, fierce, savage and more. You can live authentically and embrace yourself as you are now, flaws and all!
We can’t all be Rihanna but we can definitely be inspired by her. Use these lessons to help you carve your own path. Remember – while it’s perfectly fine to look up to celebrities, it is important to stay true to yourself! Emulate the good traits you see but also embrace your own unique self.
