Rihanna changed the game in returning to New York Fashion Week with her Savage x Fenty lingerie collection. The show, streamed live on YouTube on Wednesday night, made major waves by featuring women of all body sizes and ethnicities.
Curvy models, including two pregnant ones, walked the runway with the likes of well-known supermodels Joan Smalls and sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid. And Twitter went absolutely crazy for it. One person tweeted:

Super models mixed with regular people; pregnant, thick, skinny, black, white, asian. #SAVAGExFENTY is for everyone.

Her lingerie collection, which was launched this past spring, was made for women of all body types, and Rihanna showcased that inclusivity on the catwalk. The show ended with the models holding hands in female solidarity. Of course, Rihanna also took a final walk herself.
