Rihanna's much anticipated Savage x Fenty show is finally here. She brought the hour-long event to Amazon Prime at midnight last night (October 2) and we stayed up to witness the spectacle that RiRi is known to put on. The star, who once featured motorcycle stunts at her Fenty x Puma show, definitely didn’t disappoint. Of course, everything was Fenty from head to toe—literally. While models and celebs were sporting Savage x Fenty Lingerie and Fenty shoes, her glam squad Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal were getting everyone runway ready with Fenty Beauty and her longtime stylist Yusef was behind the hair. In true Rihanna fashion, the looks were bold, brazen, and beautiful. 

From the rockstar mullets and finger waves to flower lashes and metallic shadow and more celebrity appearances than we can count, here are all the best beauty moments from the show.

Rihanna's Multiple Hair Changes

Surely you didn't expect Rihanna would have just one look throughout the show? The hair chameleon donned at least three different shades of red and changed up her style several times from chunky braids, to an undone braided updo, to a side part (which seemed to be a trending look in the show). Lizzo, Ella Mai, and Rosalia had some serious side parts as well.

The Return of the Mullet

No matter how you feel about the polarizing beauty trend, you have to admit Rihanna pulls it off flawlessly—and she wasn't the only one. While she brought back the style she first wore a few years ago in the teaser trailer of the show, models Cara Delevigne, Soo Joo Park, and Raisa Flowers sported equally disheveled mullet styles on the runway.

Normani Channels the '60s

Normani served her best walk with a larger than lifw '60s inspired updo; curled hair, heavy bangs, and a veil completed the look. She paired this style with a soft and subtle cut crease, a fresh base, and glossy lips.

Rosalia Nails It

Whenever Rosalia makes an appearance, all eyes are on her manicure. This time, her lengthy, crystal-covered nails were the perfect accessory to her tousled waves and a red lip.

Boys, Boys, Boys

When the brand announced they were teaming up with Christian Combs to drop a men's collection, we knew it'd be a major part of the show, after all, the ethos of Fenty is inclusivity. Fenty is for all genders, all shapes, and all sizes, which was made evident in the show. We got more than a few beauty moments from the boys—singer Miguel appeared to be wearing eyeliner. The dancers and models wore neon hair, finger waves, and bleached buzz cuts.

Lizzo's Glossy Eye and Nude Lip

Any moment with Lizzo is a good one. The singer danced to D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar" in all blue lingerie with metallic blue nails, a glossy lip, and an eye look to match.

Extreme Lashes

To match the floral scenery, models and dancers wore fairy-like lashes. Riri herself emerged from a flower wearing long flutters, and considering her track record for wearing new Fenty Beauty long before it's available to the masses, we're wondering if false lashes could be next for the brand...
