The LVMH-backed luxury brand is calling time after just two years
ADESUWA AND JAZZELLE IN BLUE LATEX
While Jazzelle (who you might know better as @uglyworldwide) has been keeping us satiated with her lockdown looks on IG, iconique model Adesuwa has kept a bit of a lower profile in recent months. Landing back on the runway at Balmain’s SS21 show in Paris earlier this week, the former Dazed 100-er also showed up on RiRi’s Savage line-up in a royal blue criss-cross strapped lingerie set featuring a translucent basque and tricep-length skintight latex gloves. The two models danced together while Bad Bunny performed, with Jazzelle also shimmying into a see-through look finished with blue pasties. Consider us deceased.
RAISA FLOWERS IN LACE, LEATHER, AND A MULLET
Fresh from being made into an AR avatar at GCDS’s SS21 MFW show, legendary MUA Raisa Flowers was back on the runway, baby. Alongside a bunch of dancers in mullet wigs (still not convinced by the trend? The Savage show might have you reconsidering), Flowers stepped seductively out to Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” and served body-ody-ody in an embroidered cut-out lace one-piece and leather jacket.
NORMANI AS ‘THE BRIDE’
As if we weren’t still recovering from the moment Normani showed up in Cardi and Megan’s “WAP” video and stole the show dripping in Alaïa, the rapper was back on the Savage line-up as RiRi’s blushing bride. In a white lace bra, high-waisted knickers, and a dramatic tulle veil (obvs), Normani, I literally do.
SHEA COULEÉ IN LAVENDER AND YET MORE LATEX
Our reigning queen, who finally got her flowers circa Drag Race All Stars season five, joined fellow drag superstar Jaida Essence Hall and Gigi Goode on the runway, giving us a little light Vogueing in a latex body (fun fact: according to the show’s production notes, it took 60 bottles of lube to squeeze the cast into their slick, skintight looks). The icon also floored us in a lavender crochet body-stocking and transparent COVID-appropriate gloves: we stan a responsible queen.
RIHANNA IN CUT-OUT WHALE-NET STOCKINGS
No words necessary. Thank you for this blessing möther: we truly are not worthy.
