Rihanna Weighs In On The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show As Criticism Mounts


Rihanna didn’t need to say much to make it clear how she feels about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show…and more specifically its chief marketing officer of L Brands (VS’s parent company) Ed Razek’s Vogue interview comment about her headline-making, inclusive Savage x Fenty lingerie fashion show.

Razek, when asked about Victoria’s Secret’s own lack of body diversity among its models—which has drawn criticism—told Vogue, “Everybody keeps talking about Rihanna’s show. If we had done Rihanna’s show, we would be accused of pandering without question.” (After the interview went up, Razek did issue an apology for a separate Vogue remark he made that seemingly implied transgender models have never been cast because they are not “the fantasy.”)

Buzzfeed and Daily Mail both got screenshots of Rihanna liking a private Instagram’s screenshot of a tweet by model and fashion blogger Louise O’Reilly praising her brand and criticizing the judgement of Razek:
