We all remember Rihanna's ground-breaking debut Savage x Fenty lingerie runway show last year, featuring women of every ethnicity, gender, sex and age as well as pregnant women. It was FIERCE.
The show was flawless, colourful and beautifully curated, and by GOD did we all feel seen. Bad Gal RiRi has become one of the world's most successful fashion businesswomen, artists and makeup moguls for a very good reason.
It's time for her highly-anticipated second annual Savage X Fenty show, a runway experience celebrating the new Fall/Winter 2019 collection from the music and fashion icon herself.
The fashion show will take place during New York Fashion Week in conjunction with NYFW: The Shows and will feature a combination of models, actors and dancers wearing the latest savage styles, offering up a new type of sexy, where attitude meets individuality.
RiRi is offering you a front seat to the show, and we can't thank her enough. The Savage X Fenty Show will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide on September 20.
You can bet that the bar is about to be raised, with a star-studded evening expected and a radical departure from tradition;
“I couldn’t be more excited that everyone will have full access to The Savage X Fenty Show this year! We are working on creating a bold, sexy, super energetic experience for our viewers,” said Rihanna.
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, made a statement on the exciting news;
“Rihanna has conquered the worlds of music, film, beauty and fashion. She has re-invented the idea of what fashionable lingerie should be for a global customer. The brand authentically reflects empowering statements of inclusivity, body positivity and fun!
"The Savage X Fenty Show promises to be a ground-breaking and truly unique experience and we’re thrilled to give our global customers an exclusive front-row seat."
The Amazon Prime Video special will also feature an exclusive look behind the scenes at the making of the show, and we're expecting MAXIMUM Rihanna content.
Inspired to create a line of intimates that complements a variety of shades and shapes, Savage X Fenty celebrates fearlessness, confidence, and inclusivity. The brand's affordability and range of sizes, as well as a marketing campaign featuring every type of person, has garnered a huge fan-base.
“We want to make people look good and feel good,” explains Rihanna. "We want you to feel sexy and have fun doing it."
With sizes from 32A – 46DDD in bras, and XS-3X in undies and sleepwear Savage X Fenty is available to nab online.
We can't wait to sit in our new, stunning lingerie and feel empowered watching the show.
Fans have been waiting a long time to hear more music from the iconic singer, and her newest record is "about done", according to The Dream. The singer has worked closely with Rihanna since 2007.
When asked about the versatile artists' newest work, he said; "She’s cooking, she’s about done. She’s about done. Super close." TAKE IT OUT OF THE OVEN.
He flat out refused to give any more details about the Disturbia hitmaker's album, but also teased that Beyoncé is "doing something" in the studio. Praise the Lawd, the Queens are returning to their thrones.
Speaking in an interview with Ebro Darden, he said: “I actually haven’t talked to her about it – I’ve talked to the team about it because it’s kind of just being coordinated. But she’s doing something."
RiRi recently joked to her fans that her internet connection was too poor to answer their questions about her album, though many are saying her ninth studio album is close to being finished.
The singer posted a video to her Instagram Stories which featured her waving a wad of cash, smiling and blowing a kiss to the camera, with the caption, '"Fans: "Where the album?" Me: sorry my connection poor."
We all have that friend that seems to have her head permanently in the gutter, and if you can't pinpoint which pal it is… then it's you, hun.
Every woman deserves to feel sexy and powerful, and some of your friends understand that notion more than others.
You know the one, the gal-pal that's always giving insanely detailed in and out's (pardon the pun) of her sex life, her favourite sex positions and toys, even her tips that you never really asked to hear.
If she's the mate you've been given for the Kris Kringle, never fear.
We have the ULTIMATE red hot, X-rated spice guide for buying the best gifts.
Strap yourselves in, fam. No, that wasn't an intentional BDSM reference, honestly….
1. Girl Boner: The Good Girl's Guide to Sexual Empowerment by August McLaughlin
August McLaughlin wrote a powerful book about how she overcame her eating disorder after embracing her sexuality.
The result is an incredible collection of her thoughts on what it means to be a 'good girl', slut shaming, prude-shaming, bondage, BDMS, body image, girl boners and orgasms, among other saucy things.
We advise you to grab it ASAP for your sexually empowered pals, or anyone who needs it for that matter. We've already ordered it from Amazon…*winks*

3. Savage x Fenty lacy teddy

Glydecondoms are vegan and made with sustainably harvested natural latex, so they're perfect for that environmentally friendly sexually empowered pal. I mean, they're even certified by PETA.

“We getting NAUGHTY-not-NICE this season! @savagexfenty just dropped The Ultimate Gift Guide to help you shop gifts for everybody in ya life !! Hit up SavageX.com to get 50% off everything for a limited time!”
Tbh we barely read the caption because we were far too busy staring at how drop-dead gorgeous she is in the post, but obviously we will be lining up to get whatever this gal offers us.
It is well and truly the end of an angelic age. Supermodel and all-round BADASS lady, Adriana Lima, has bid an emotional goodbye to Victoria's Secret after walking in their star-studded catwalk show for the final time. We'd sob too.
Lima walked in her first Victoria's Secret show way back in 1999, and has remained one of their prime angels ever since. She is also a fan favourite, with many on the internet referring to her as… wait for it… THE GREATEST ANGEL OF ALL TIME. (#goat)
She is retiring from the infamous lingerie brand at the age of 37, and we have no doubt that hanging up those flawless diamond wings must be a difficult thing for the Brazilian supermodel, as VS cemented her career as a supermodel goddess.
The veteran model received a standing ovation as she carried out her final walk, wearing a sheer, sparkling top, blue lingerie, feathered beige heels and those statement wings. She looked like a vision, as per.
Lima was understandably tearful as she waved at the camera, saying goodbye to her fans and fellow angels with the glamour and grace of a true #angel. We're not crying. You're crying.
In a moving Instagram post showing her best moments from a compilation of 19 shows, Lima wrote a caption thanking the brand for all that they have done for her:
"Dear Victoria, thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the love to the best fans in the world! Love, Adriana."
Lima is now a mother of two, and was the longest-serving Victoria's Secret model and Angel, as well as acting as a spokesperson for the company. She joined forces with them at the tender age of 18.
"I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared in social media. Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me, when a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body.
"Then it made me think…. that everyday in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job?"
"And in that moment I realized that majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/social media/fashion etc imposed…. I thought that's not a way of living and beyond that…. that's not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change," she continued.
"I will not take [off] my clothes anymore for [an] empty cause….. #Embraceyouself #natureisbeautiful #naturalissexy #LOVEYOU."
Her body confidence post inspired many fans to speculate that she was ending her ties with Victoria's Secret, which is renowned for the immense pressure it puts on it's models to look a certain way, and be a certain weight. It notoriously only showcases one body type on the runway.
The VS models are put through a gruelling exercise regime and diet, which many find almost impossible to endure for more than a few years. Adriana Lima, as the brand's longest-serving angel and mother-of-two, appears to have felt that the time was right to hang up her wings.
We'll miss her working those stunning catwalk #LEWKS every year, but her career is still booming. Age and beauty standards definitely won't hold this gal back.
Following the release of her hugely successful Fenty Beauty range, Rihanna is now lending her talents to the world of fashion.
In her latest quest for world domination, the star has reportedly signed a deal with TechStyle Fashion Group to launch her own collection of designer undergarments.
The full details of RiRi's new business venture have not yet been revealed, however a source told WWD that the project has been in the pipeline for over a year, and designs sample have already been produced.
It seems like he next logical step for the star who has recently managed to carve quite an impressive career for herself outside the music industry.
The rumoured project is also in keeping with TechStyle's celebrity track record, having previously worked with the likes of Kate Hidson and Demi Lovato.
Rihanna's reps are yet to comment on the reports, and the whole thing is basically still in the speculation stage, but of course that hasn't stopped fans from jumping the gun and offering up their life savings.
Lingerie line? Rihanna? She clearly wants all my money and I’m eager to give it to her
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, our minds have wandered to the recesses of our underwear drawer with destain for the over-washed wisps of plain cotton which lie within.
It's definitely more full coverage and comfy than Victorias Secret-esque, but that's all about to change.
Thanks to Lidl, you can now shop for a sexy lingerie look while your grabbing the weekly shop.
Kimono €7.99, Bra €7.99, Briefs €5.99
Amidst the affordable avocados, stacks of eggs and the beloved crisps aisle will soon live a seriously seductive range of lacy lingerie – but not for long with these prices.
The Esmara lingerie collection is monochrome, suiting everyone's taste.
The gorgeous Glenda Gilson is the face (and abs) of the line, and while frankly the seasoned presenter would look good wearing a plastic bag, the stunning selection of lace delicates and silk kimonos are oh so flattering.
Ladies kimono €7.99 each
Whether you're entertaining company for the night or lounging in PJs with the girls this coming Valentines Day, a robe is an essential.
Lidl is launching a selection of three silk kimonos, in classic black, racy red and an eclectic geometric print.
Would it be rude to purchase one for every mood?
Lace body €8.99
As Glenda demonstrates to great effect, a lace bodysuit is an unusual and flirty way to showcase your figure with a retro feel.
The slightly high cut of Lidl's monochrome bodysuits is extremely forgiving, and we can picture them teamed with jeans and barely there heels for the perfect Valentine's date night outfit – or a night on the tiles.
If you're feeling like a more traditional piece, a negligee is the way to go.
Lace bodies €8.99 each, Lace negligee €8.99
This black lace slip with a bow tie detail could be paired with any kind of briefs, and is exactly what we can picture the likes of SATC's Samantha reclining in with a glass of wine.
Whether you're treating yourself or planning on treating your partner, a classic bra and underwear set is a crowd pleaser (if you're into that).
Bra €7.99 each, Briefs €5.99 each
Lidl is stocking a selection of black and white lacy bras and knickers to mix and match. The sizes include 34B, 36B, 36C, 38B and 38C.
The collection lands in stores tomorrow so if there was a day of the week to do the weekly shop, it would be February 1.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the rush to get all the last minute bits together for the big night is on.
Luckily, you can now shop your lingerie look while your grabbing the weekly shop.
Lidl has just launched its Valentine's Day lingerie collection and, much like its bargain groceries, the underwear is amazingly affordable.
Bras €7.99 each, Briefs €4.99 each
The Esmara lingerie collection is monochrome, keeping the look chic.
There are also intricate Parisian-inspired details like pearl accents and lace overlays.
Chemise top €8.99, Briefs €5.99
While top Irish model Nadia Forde is going to look good in absolutely anything, this chemise baby doll top is exceptionally flattering.
All of the briefs come in packs of two, so for €4.99 you're definitely getting your money's worth.
Lidl doesn't just have the basics covered, the discount grocery store is also carrying gorgeous garters and silky kimonos, which wouldn't look out of place backstage at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The garters come in two hues, black or white, to match every other item in the Esmara collection.
While supermarket lingerie might not seem special, these luxurious sateen wraps would fool even the finest of high-end lingerie connoisseurs.
And really, who's going to care that your new lacy undergarments are from a supermarket?
Bra €7.99, Thong €4.99, Sateen Wrap €12.99
Whether you're treating yourself or gearing up to treat someone else, getting some cute underwear while doing the weekly shop is arguably much handier than trekking to the specialist shops.
