Rihanna has received plenty of love for giving plus-sized people the spotlight in her latest fashion line. During her Savage x Fenty Vol.2 show, her line showcased that it also caters to plus-sized people - unlike many high fashion underwear lines.
The fashion show showcased many different looks in bodies that come in many different shapes and sizes. The models comprised of both men and women donning Rihanna's latest underwear designs.
There is not much representation for plus-sized people when it comes to fashion but Rihanna challenged that. On the Fenty e-commerce site, a man features modelling boxers in size XXL.
Social media users from around the world weighed in after the show, praising Rihanna for finally giving everyone plus-sized fair representation.
@Itsbrajohn_ said: "Okay but this is huge. The fact they casted a plus size guy and didn’t try to fine tune his stretch marks is amazing. Fenty is representing real bodies and turning imperfections into perfections. Representation is literally everything. We have no choice but to stan."
@gumbogoon said: "Rihanna clutch. I never seen a model built like me before. This just did wonders for my confidence."
@_xoxomari_ said: "Remember when people were blaming fat people for “ruining” Victoria Secret and acting like VS had a right to not hire plus size models. But now Savage Fenty is thriving while being inclusive. Love to see it."
@dacbietbilly said: "Everyone is RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous in the Savage X Fenty Show. I love how Rihanna included transgender models, drag queens, and actual plus size models for both men & women."
