Rihanna has been quickly making her name as a designer with her inclusive makeup, clothing and lingerie line under the Fenty brand, and the fashion world has taken notice. The singer was given the Urban Luxe award at the Fashion Awards in London on Monday, and was presented with the honour by fellow musician and fashion icon Janet Jackson. We bow down to any event that can bring together these two kweens.

Jackson posted a rare shot of herself on Monday night smiling next to the Fenty designer, writing “Congratulatoions #FashionAwards.” Sure, this looks like a great pic from backstage at Royal Albert Hall, but it also looks like artwork we want to see as an album cover.

According to Vogue, the British Fashion Council created the Urban Luxe award to “…honor contemporary labels that elevate the concept of casual.” The award was based on Fenty’s collaboration with LVMH fashion house, which marked the first time a new brand was added to the LVMH lineup in 32 years and the first time a woman had launched a brand under the fashion house. The first line from the new partnership was released in May and featured oversized suits matched with sexy silhouettes in mini skirts and off the shoulder sweaters.

Rihanna’s accomplishment was celebrated on social media by Fenty, who applauded their artistic director for her commitment to empowering women through fashion. Fenty shared a picture of Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky from the Fashion Awards, both wearing Fenty (of course), writing that the singer and brand have “committed to reflecting the understanding of female power as constantly evolving, multi-faceted, fun and free.” Adding that since the brand’s May launch, “FENTY had the pleasure of working with incredible talents, forming a new archive of visual references focusing on the intersection between style, culture and identity. FENTY is a young brand with a powerful collective voice, shaped by the individuals behind it.”

Rihanna’s Fenty line has been seen on celebs like Cardi B and Bella Hadid, with both women also praising Rihanna’s Fenty x Savage lingerie line. The Victoria’s Secret model revealed at a Vogue Fashion event in November that after years of walking in the famous fashion show, it wasn’t until Hadid modeled for Fenty x Savage in 2018 that she felt comfortable and confident modelling in lingerie. “Rihanna’s amazing. For me, that was the first time on a runway that I felt really sexy,” said Hadid, adding “Because when I first did Fenty, I was doing other lingerie shows and I never felt powerful on a runway, like, in my underwear.”

Rihanna has continued to draw praise for her Fenty line, from her commitment to providing a wide range of colours for every skin tone in the Fenty Beauty brand to creating an inclusive offering of sizes for the Fenty x Savage lingerie line. At New York Fashion Week this past September, the Savage x Fenty show became the hottest ticket in town, with Rihanna combining a music concert and fashion show to create a spectacle that was praised by attendees and turned into an Amazon Prime documentary.

Most recently, Rihanna named popstar Normani as the first brand ambassador for Savage x Fenty, with the former Fifth Harmony member sizzling in the new holiday campaign for the affordable lingerie line.
