Rihanna's at it again, bringing her perfection into our undeserving worlds. We can't cope with her, honestly.
This time, she's only gone and produced realistic mannequins for her first Fenty collection, with actual, real-life CURVES. *Wipes away tear* We adore representation.
Bad Gal RiRi debuted her first collection at a New York City pop-up store, and while the clothes themselves were gorgeous, fans noticed the mannequins immediately for their authenticity.

While in-store mannequins in regular retail shops normally feature a 24-inch waist, Rihanna decided to do things her way, adding hips, fuller breasts and even…a BELLY. *Faints*
People were here for the representation, with one user tweeting; "Here for the mannequin having hip dips and a little pooch." Another responded; "Wow, this mannequin is shaped like me".
The joy was palpable from fans all over the world, adoring Rihanna's vision. We all most likely remember her iconic Savage x Fenty catwalk show, featuring models of every colour, size and ability as well as a pregnant model.

"Rihanna’s vision for Fenty is to celebrate femininity in all its form," the brand told BAZAAR.com in a statement.
"This Release 6-19 explores another facet of a woman’s wardrobe, one that honours all colours, shapes, curves and styles. We wanted to illustrate the Maison’s inclusive side by showing a size-range of mannequins which represent this reality."
Nike recently debuted plus-size mannequins in the women's section of their Oxford Street store, grabbing attention for the ground-breaking move.

Located at The Webster until June 30, Fenty's new pop-up showcases the 31-year-old singer's stunning dresses and form-fitting knit outfits on mannequins of all different shapes and sizes.
The move is rarely witnessed in the body-shaming world of high fashion, but everyone knows you can't tell RiRi what to do.
Hopefully other brands take note, and decide to show genuine women in their ad campaigns, runway shows and mannequin sizing.
