Robyn Rihanna Fenty has proven to the beauty and fashion world that she is a force to be reckoned with. With the release her Fenty Beauty line and creation of an electrifying show for New York Fashion Week (NYFW), she is living up to the name, BadGalRiRi.
Fenty Beauty is the icon’s first beauty line. A makeup line that included all women was Rihanna’s mindset when working on this project. Creating 40 different shades of foundation, she attempted to make a perfect shade for all skin tones and types. Dropping that many different shades of foundation for her first line took the beauty world by surprise. Fenty Beauty also offers a variety of other face make up and one lip gloss. The “Universal Lip Luminizer” is a gloss designed to look good on everyone. Rihanna’s motivation with make up is to inspire.
BadGalRiRi brought a high energy to the runway with her Spring 2018 Ready-To-Wear Fenty x Puma line. With the X Games-inspired line it was only natural to have motocross stuntmen perform insane tricks over the mountains of pink sand on the runway. Rihanna created a set with two ramps for the stuntmen to ride up and flip off of while the models strutted around the hot pink sandy scenery. Rihanna rode in on the back of one of the motorcyclists and, according to the press, the crowd was on the edge of their seats the entire show. The creativity of this pop culture icon is inspiring and she has no intentions of slowing down.
