During the recently-wrapped New York Fashion Week Spring 2020 season, Rihanna created one of the most-buzzed-about events for Savage x Fenty, even though it could not be found on Instagram or any social media platform due to a strict no-phone policy. She treated guests, who included Anna Wintour and Paris Hilton, to an inclusive, dance-filled fashion show — complete with musical performances from Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, Normani and A$AP Ferg — at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Up until now, much of what went down that evening — aside from first-hand accounts and glowing reviews of the lingerie blowout — has been shrouded in secrecy. So, we've spent the past week wondering what lacey bra and underwear set Normani got down in, and if Laverne Cox strut in a sleek bodysuit or a chiffon robe.
On Thursday — a day before the full show is set to stream on Amazon Prime Video, and before the collection goes on sale — we finally got some answers. The first images taken backstage have been revealed, along with a minute-long trailer (see above).
Laverne Cox was indeed clad in a satin hot-pink bodysuit; the look also included a pair of matching gloves. Bella Hadid modeled a bright yellow lace bra-and-panty set, which was accessorized with a lace cape. Slick Woods – who was not carrying a child this year — sported a similar get-up, but in purple. There were a fierce group of ladies in red, including Joan Smalls and Paloma Elsesser, and another in slime green that featured Cara Delevingne. Normani did not wear a lace bra and panty set, but she did wear a mesh one with lips printed all over it.
