and Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty entrepreneur, Rihanna, is set to launch Volume 4 of her Savage X Fenty fashion experience on November 9th. For those unable to indulge in the extravaganza in person, Amazon is going to be streaming the unscripted, unfettered, Emmy-award-winning bacchanal from its location at the South Coast Botanic Garden in Palos Verdes Estates, California.
With more than 240 countries set to tune in, this year’s performers include Anitta, whose Instagram thrilled fans with sneak peeks of her upcoming performance. Wearing head-to-toe fishnets and luscious layers of leather, pictures showed the singer serenading from a stage offset with the illusion of a setting sun, whereas others featured her coyly frocklicking in the woods.
With models like Precious Lee, Cara Delevigne and Irina Shayk set to appear, Riri's show is destined to resolidify Fenty's supremacy in the star-studded fashion celestial sphere. Images released to Vogue show fashion at its edgiest and finest, especially with the profusion of faux leather catsuits, lace-up busters, jewelry by Reza, garter belts and size-inclusive lingerie crafted to display the body like candy for every appetite.
Dance will clearly occupy an artistic sweet spot, as is evident by model Jeff Logan standing amid dancers about to launch into a tightly choreographed number no doubt fueled by music born from the techno-spliced-with-hip-hop sonic hyperspace.
Other photos show dancers moving in a frenzy that is both methodical and hedonistic, calling to mind the dual precision and sensuality of Janet Jackson’s If.
Back in model world, Delevigne stuns in a sculptured hairstyle reminiscent of Rose McGowan's in the dystopian fantasy Conan the Barbarian (2011). With bleached eyebrows, winged eyeliner and luminescent lips, she appears moon-kissed if a little too naughty to be heaven-blessed.
Thanks to a thematic mashup of futurism and cyberpunk, along with choreography that keeps the show kinetic and fueled with momentum, this is set to be an event that makes one ask, “Victoria’s Secret who?”
