This week, statement looks were served from the runway to the red carpet - find out more in this edition of the Weekly Collection.
“This is the face of a woman in labour”
On September 12, Rihanna tore up New York Fashion Week with an inclusive and empowering show for her lingerie brand, Savage x Fenty. Featuring models of all shapes, sizes, colours and backgrounds, the superstar singer made a bold statement in support of body positivity and size inclusion, while simultaneously stunning the world with her latest lingerie collection. But if that wasn’t all headline-worthy enough - one of the models who strutted the runway ended up giving birth mere hours later. 22-year-old Slick Woods took to the catwalk in a stunning celebration of female power, revealing a few days later on Instagram that she was actually in labour as she walked: “This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOR, we hold shit down … I’m here to say I CAN DO WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT WHENEVER THE FUCK I WANT AND SO CAN YOU”. If that message isn’t empowering, I don’t know what is.
Emmys 2018: Lewks that shook
September 18 heralded the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the best and brightest in television hit up Downtown LA. This year, the red carpet definitely impressed, with an abundance of OOTDs as beautiful as they are memorable. Black-ish actress Jenifer Lewis also made a splash by turning up in a Nike sweatshirt, repping the brand for its support of former NFL star Colin Kaepernick. Broad City duo Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were another pair of standouts; as well as Westworld’s Angela Sarafyan; The Sinner’s Jessica Biel; the ever-iconic Tracee Ellis Ross and American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson. And honestly - bless the men of Queer Eye, for actually serving looks that aren’t bland and basic like 99 per cent of the other male attendees. Special mention to the ever-glamorous Jonathan van Ness who slayed in a transparent organza turtleneck and flared white suit. Scroll through to see our top picks from TV’s night of nights.
