The 30-year-old beauty has just launched her new Savage X Fenty lingerie collection at New York Fashion Week, but she’s urged her female fans to only wear lingerie for the right reasons, and not just to get married.
She said: “When lingerie is for you, you never lose your sexiness. I feel like a lot of times women do the lingerie thing to get the ring, and then they get the ring, and then it’s like, ‘OK, we’re here. [Now what?]’”
Rihanna also discussed her own attitude towards wearing lingerie – but she admitted that other women might not share her outlook. The ‘Work’ hitmaker told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “For me, it might not be the same as for another lady. I think it has to be something that makes you feel the sexiest … I have those months when I’m like, ‘Girl, you’re not gonna fit into that thing. You’re gonna have to do a little slip.’ But fine! A slip works. A slip makes me feel sexy and I’ll just do that. I think women’s bodies are designed so differently, uniquely that they should just do what makes them feel best and sexiest.”
And the chart-topping star – whose eye-catching show also included plus-size pieces and maternity designs – revealed she was determined to create something unique. She shared: “It was exciting for me, just for me to be able to display lingerie. And the challenge was to figure out how to do it in a different way because we’ve seen a lot. And it’s Fashion Week, and everybody’s expecting a runway show and with lingerie, it gets tricky. So I wanted to do something that was special, and new, and different, and unique, and I think we managed to do that.”
