The Show Opening:
Glittery pink mountains set the stage for the show, and the show opened with BMX riders literally doing flips over the mountains.
Brightly colored scuba-inspired sportswear took center stage and included oversized jackets, track pants, biker shorts and high cut swimsuits. As for shoes, there were Creepers (of course!) and also a heeled flip-flop.
A few of our favorite Black models hit the runway at Fenty x Puma including Joan Smalls, Duckie Thot and Selena Forrest. Slick Woods, who stars in the Fenty Beauty campaign, also walked for Fenty x Puma.
The models all hit the runway in Rihanna’s fresh-off-the-shelves makeup line Fenty Beauty, which is designed to give you a flawless complexion.

The Show Closing:
Instead of a final bow or wave, Rihanna decided to delight her audience by riding out on the back of a BMX. They don’t call her ‘bad gal RiRi’ for nothing!
