At this point, the world has come to understand that Rihanna never does anything the “normal” way. From accepting the CFDA’s Style Icon award in a see-through dress to how she announces big life news (remember that baby bump reveal?), it’s all cloaked in drama—and the very good kind of drama, to be totally clear.
The Rihanna version of a fashion show flips the traditional catwalk on its head. It’s an expect-the-unexpected kind of situation, and, luckily, we’re just days away from being gifted with another installation. Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4 will premiere on Amazon Prime this Wednesday, with Rihanna serving as both executive producer and creative director.
Here are the key things to know ahead of this Wednesday’s show, like how to watch and the special guests to expect.
It’s available to stream on Prime Video.
Like last season’s vol. 3, the show will be streamed on Amazon. Anyone with a Prime membership can experience it just the way the artist-cum-icon intended it to be: as an artistic experience that transcends labels.
Part musical performance, part runway, part cabaret—it’s really a pop-culture fantasia that seems to have crept into the star’s heart and soul and pulled out some very cool stuff.
The talent roster is deep.
The names being touted include Anitta, Burna Boy, and Maxwell, and special appearances from Ángela Aguilar, Avani Gregg, Bella Poarch, Bretman Rock, Cara Delevingne, Damson Idris, Joan Smalls, Kornbread, Lara Stone, Lilly Singh, Marsai Martin, Precious Lee, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Simu Liu, Taraji P. Henson, Taylour Paige, Winston Duke, and Zach Miko.
In short, it’s jam-packed with famous faces. Watch and see who you spot in a super glam version of those look-and-find games you loved as a kid.
The visuals, choreography, and overall vibe will be top notch.
Last year’s show won an award for choreography and was also nominated in the production design category, too. It’s an impressive act to follow, but there’s no doubting that this year’s will have the same skilled experts involved in making it all a must-see moment on the fashion calendar. Notes provided ahead of time call it a “visual feast” tapping into “the hypnotic essence of nocturnal nature.”
You can shop it right away.
As in the past, everyone involved in the literal extravaganza will be wearing pieces from the newest collection—and everything will be available to shop immediately in the Amazon Fashion Store. That connection between the high-wattage show and your own living room is exciting—there’s something undeniably cool about getting to see Rihanna in something and buy it for yourself right away (and not have it cost a thousand bucks).
The icon and pals are basically the best salespeople out there, too. Yeah, you can see what a garment looks like on the site’s model, but you can really see what it looks like strutting, spinning, or otherwise living its best life in the Savage X Fenty Show.
The brand’s still committed to a wide size range.
It’s no longer news that anything with the Fenty name means body diversity. The brand’s made sure to bring that commitment into the real world, too, producing everything in an uber-wide range of sizes.
Bras are done in band sizes 30 to 46 and A-H cups (the largest being 46DDD/42H). The lingerie, pajamas, and loungewear in the line ranges from extra-small to XXXL.
