There were big women, small women, black women, brown women, pregnant women, dimply women, short hair, natural hair, no hair, peroxide hair, big boobs, little boobs – all wrapped up in some nice lace that looks both comfortable and practical.

Like, no-one was fixing straps or subtly yanking out wedgies when everyone was moving and dancing and writhing around the stage, which was themed around the Garden of Eden. A nice reminder bodies are made for more than just gliding down a catwalk to prop up some clothes.

Among the models were a few familiar faces including Slick Woods, Leomie Anderson, Bella and Gigi Hadid. And RiRi, obvi.

Rihanna just showed the brand new Savage x Fenty lingerie collection at New York Fashion Week and she wins. Of course.

In a rare occurrence at fashion month, the show was actually diverse and body positive – and not just the usual let’s-just-throw-in-a-few-token-models-of-colour-and-a-girl-who-isn’t-size-0-and-pretend-we’re-super-inclusive-and-woke kinda thing.

It’s a welcome celebration in all shapes, sizes and colours. Especially when you contrast it with the biggest lingerie show in the world, Victoria’s Secret. Which, sure, is a spectacle. But it’s also a 6 foot, very slim, hairless, bronzed walking billboard for a very narrow beauty ideal.

All praise our saviour Queen Ri Ri.
