Rihanna knows how to put on a show. But whereas fans might normally expect her to headline Brooklyn's Barclays Center with a performance of her most well-known hits, earlier this month, Rihanna used the arena to change the fashion industry forever. On Sept. Though plenty will be written about the show on social media and in publications for quite some time to come, it's a production that's probably worth seeing for yourself first. To briefly synthesize what went down: There were musical performances by Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, and more; Normani delivered an electrifying dance number; and models of all shapes, skin tones, and abilities confidently orbited around the Colosseum-like structure.
Rihanna opened up the show when she hit the stage looking unbelievably sexy in a skintight, sheer black bodysuit covered in a subtle cage pattern with long sleeves and pants. Underneath the one-piece, RiRi rocked a black bra that showed off major cleavage , while she chose to wear a tiny black velvet sarong mini skirt on top. She topped her look off with black leather gloves, dazzling diamond bracelets and earrings, pointy-toed black pumps, and a sexy bright red lip. RiRi stood on top of a giant white platform in the center of the stage while a bunch of dancers stood on platforms surrounding her wearing skintight sheer black bodysuits with lace details on the bodice.
