“The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them.”- The Daily Beast.
I can admit that I was one of the Rihanna fans that was super excited for her new collection with River Island. But as the Instagram pictures surfaced, it seemed like the after party stole the limelight of the runway show. We all predicted flannel shirts tied at the waist paired with baseball caps turned to the back, but instead we were greeted with scrawny models wearing slutty crotch-flashing lingerie, mesh beachwear and satin bras.
Ri-Ri’s oh-so-anticipated collection made a very fashionably late debut, leaving attendees waiting an hour for a nine minute show. Some say the singer redeemed herself by opening her runway show with, my personal anthem, Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Clique.” She showcased remixed denim overalls, and stonewashed dresses to an intricate lighting show.
Overall critics believed this was a riveting lackluster moment calling it a “Horror Show.” Watch the behind-the-scenes from her show plus her nine minute fashion debut.
