Riri, our favourite bad gal, outdid herself once again with Vol. 2 of the hour-long Savage x Fenty show. Word of caution? Looks. Were. Served.

The 80s have been big this 2020 and one of the most unexpected trends that made a comeback from this dominantly pop era is the mullet. The catch? Rihanna’s been ahead of the game, sporting the hairstyle since way back in 2013 at NYFW. We don’t know about you, but something about the mullet is giving us that effortless, big female energy everyone needs.
2. QUEEN BEE
You know what they say, the higher the hair, the closer to heaven. Famously worn by the late Amy Winehouse, the Simpsons family’s Marge, and Frankenstein’s Wife in the cinematic universe, the bouffant hairstyle made its debut almost 60 years ago. What you need to get the ‘do ala Bella Hadid? Lots of hair spray and a teasing comb. Lock that in and you’re guaranteed to feel like the ultimate HBIC any time of the day.
3. POP ART
Another thing that Riri has done for us? School us on modern art 101. The moment these models stepped out on the first few minutes of the show, we remembered the notable works of American artist Roy Lichtenstein. But Rihanna is Rihanna, and in another interview, global makeup artist for Fenty’s Priscilla Ono revealed that they took inspiration from the Bad Gal’s actual drawings. “We wanted the models and dancers to look like they were a part of Rihanna’s drawings, so we created a unique line work application using both liquid and pencil liners for varying effects and finishes,” says Ono.
4. BANG BANG
The lob? Don’t know her. ‘Cause the micro bangs and bob combo is the real shaggy deal. If mullets are too extreme, then this is the perfect low-maintenance hairstyle for you, which is guaranteed to emit femme fatale vibes. Bonus: wear a tight latex outfit.
5. FLORALS? GROUNDBREAKING.
The ethereal jungle segment might just be the most breathtaking part of the show. The fluttery eyelashes made out of actual petal cut-outs by Ono were inspired by “the ethereal nature of the set and wanted to interpret Rihanna’s vision of a garden through dramatic eyes.” Dreamy and surreal, Riri’s entrance via a gigantic flower in bloom makes us want to put on our Poison Ivy suit just in time for Halloween.
