The 31-year-old previously said in a statement about her show:

“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.”

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, added:

“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.”

There’s never been another lingerie show like it!

Former Victoria’s Secret models Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Cara Delevingne were just a few of the big names to werk the runway, donning Rih’s gorgeous looks.

As we wrote in July, model Shanina Shaik told Australia’s The Daily Telegraph there will be no VS Fashion Show this year.

The 28-year-old — who has walked the extravaganza in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018 — told the publication:

“Unfortunately the Victoria’s Secret show won’t be happening this year… It’s something I’m not used to because every year around this time I’m training like an angel. But I’m sure in the future something will happen, which I’m pretty sure about.”

The runway diva added:

“I’m sure they’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because it’s the best show in the world.”

According to a memo first obtained by CNBC from Chief Executive Les Wexner of parent company L Brands Inc, the annual program will no longer air on network television after a nearly two-decade run.

Per the note addressed to employees, the conglomerate has been “taking a fresh look at every aspect of our business” in the past few months, and noted the brand “must evolve and change to grow.”

In November 2018, Victoria’s Secret executive Ed Razek told Vogue he would not hire transgender models to walk the runway, saying:

“Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special. That’s what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us. And they carp at us because we’re the leader. They don’t talk about each other. I accept that. I actually respect it. Cool. But we’re nobody’s third love. We’re their first love. And Victoria’s Secret has been women’s first love from the beginning.”

He also said the company “attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes [in 2000]. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.”

Razek later apologized for his controversial comments on social media, explaining:

“My remark regarding the inclusion of transgender models in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show came across as insensitive. I apologize. To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show. We’ve had transgender models come to castings… And like many others, they didn’t make it… But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are.”

After the business ended up hiring its first transgender model, Valentina Sampaio, in August of this year, Razek resigned.

You better believe there was no lack of diversity at Rihanna’s runway extravaganza! Laverne Cox was one of many to strut her stuff for the audience:
