Boom. Rihanna is that bitch. Or as the words rang out, “Half bitch half flame.” She’s on fire. The world of Savage x Fenty was out of this world. Another universe, another galaxy. A science experiment. Extraterrestrial. The Beatles’ ‘Because’ rang out, “Because the world is round, it turns me on.” Mood. It was Rihanna’s-made world, where women of all shapes, sizes, races, faces come together and move in formation – in lingerie. Free as f**k. The screeching of Shygirl’s Rude set it in motion – the heavy bass vibrating, infectious. Waterfalls fell hypnotically, plants grew so lush amongst rocks and a greenhouse-like laboratory – a futuristic paradise found where Rihanna’s creatures crawled, danced and shifted. Amongst these women came Bella, Gigi, Slick Woods with her Saphir, Joan Smalls… Rihanna’s chosen ones moving in slow motions but infused with all that bad gal energy. The women stood holding hands, unified. “Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go,” sang Nicholas Cage as Rihanna walked with all that swag through her land. Our fearless leader. Yes, this love is heavenly. The lingerie looked good, too. And we’re off.
