Last night, Rihanna presented her latest Savage x Fenty at New York Fashion Week. The artist/designer had previously promised the event would be  “bigger and badder” than ever — and it did not disappoint.

One of the most hyped collections of the season, shortly before the show kicked off (and closed New York Fashion Week) Rihanna posted a teaser on Instagram. Take a look below.

Elsewhere on social media, however, content around the new Savage x Fenty collection has been rather slim — that’s because all attendees were subject to a phone ban. Everyone had to hand their phones over to security until after the show in order to so stop footage leaking. The reason? The entire performance will stream exclusively to Amazon Prime Video on Friday, September 20.

While of course, that means we’re all (kind of) invited to the show, if you can’t wait until later this month to find out what went down, we’ve collected a round-up of the Savage x Fenty show highlights below.

The show took place at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center and, as you can see, was decked out like a total Broadway production — blinding lights, props, and Parris Goebel-choreographed dances. Models stood atop pillars and posed like sculptures.

The show opened with a choreographed dance from Bad Gal RiRi herself, draped in black lace and dropping characteristically fierce moves. Watch a tiny snippet via the video below.

Rihanna enlisted a wild selection of artists to perform during the show, with Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, A$AP Ferg, Fat Joe, Fabolous, and Tierra Whack all turning up. Normani even arrived to star in a solo dance performance.

Actors, dancers, and models built up this year’s Savage crew. 21 Savage, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, Christian Combs, Alek Wek, and Laverne Cox were just some of the names on this season’s Savage x Fenty runway.

On top of the already swelling list of artists and runway stars, the crowd was also a big mood. Khelani, Diana Von Furstenverg, Ashley Graham, Kacey Musgraves, Hailee Steinfeld, Vanesse Hudgens, Dasha Polanco, and more were all spotted in the crowd.

Naturally, the collection previewed was decadent as hell. The collection took inspiration from 1920s flappers and included jewels, chockers, bodysuits, spring-ready shades of pastels and bright canary yellows. But the real highlight of the event? An intricate lace cape —  an item we’re definitely excited about adding to our bedroom rotation.
