Paris Fashion Week- Fenty x Puma by Rihanna hit the runway last night at the National Library of France in Paris.
Bad Gal RiRi debuted her Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection for Puma entitled “Back To School” at the most lavish yet appropriate place possible, the reading room of the Richelieu Louvois library, part of the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Her collection was inspired by school girls. So what better place than a library for a fashion show right? The invitation for the show which was shown on Instagram was a detention card.
The extravagant circular reading room was turned into a runway for Rihanna’s sporty fall/Winter designs. The models, which included raging up and coming ‘IT’ girls of the moment Slick Woods and Adwoa Aboah emerged from behind an installation of lockers and used the reading tables as their runway lined by traditional green and gold lamps.
The collection, which was filled with colorful ode’s to her island roots (lots of green, black, and orange) was sporty, sexy, and totally Rihanna’s style. Thigh high boots, oversized hoodies, skin-tight bodysuits and the occasional puffer coat without a bra were all on display for this edgy sportswear collection.
One of the best and most dynamic looks of the night was a bright orange and burgundy hooded bodysuit worn by none other than Victoria’s Secret model Joan Smalls (below).
The front row included members of Riri’s family as well as some very supportive friends like her bestie Cara Delevingne, Nick and Joe Jonas, Future, DJ Mustard, Salma Hayek-Pinault and her Husband Francois-Henri Pinault.
Rihanna took a humble bow as she was met with applause as she walked the runway hafter her models gave a finale walk.
