Rihanna Apologizes to Muslim Fans After Using Sacred Islamic Verses in Her Savage x Fenty Fashion Show

From Cosmopolitan

  • Rihanna hosted her Savage x Fenty fashion show last week and used sacred Islamic verse to soundtrack her show.
  • After receiving backlash for the incident, Rih issued an apology on Instagram.

Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show came, saw, and conquered our computer and phone screens last week. I mean, given the fact that there were sooooo many celebrity faces participating in the show—like Paris Hilton, Erika Jayne, Bella Hadid, and more—it was all that people could talk about over the weekend. But something else that people couldn’t stop discussing? The fact that Rih used hadith, the sacred sayings of the prophet Muhammad used to guide Muslims, to soundtrack her show.

According to a Twitter user, Rih’s inclusion of hadith as music was a massive oversight. “As a Muslim, no words can describe how disappointed I am with Rihanna for letting her models dance to hadith,” the person wrote.

Christopher John Rogers’s SS21 Show Made Natural Beauty Look Glam

Ever since his New York Fashion Week debut, Christopher John Rogers has turned his shows into one of the most anticipated events during fashion month. And while the coronavirus pandemic has changed what fashion week looks like, CJR still managed to put on quite the show on October 6, thanks to the CFDA’s Runway 360. 

The clothes shown on the platform were reminiscent of many of his past collections. Pieces were colorful, daring, and eye-catching. Inspired by happiness, this collection sparked pure joy. To achieve said joy, which is very much needed these days, Christopher chose life itself as his standpoint. In particular: Childhood and its seemingly limitless playfulness. 

The designer envisioned little kids drawing with crayons and markers, reminiscing about the starter pack of crayons we used to get before starting school. Think Crayola, but make it fashion! “Something as immense and formidable as the sun can be reduced

Rihanna apologizes to Muslim community for using song with Islamic scripture in fashion show

Rihanna is issuing an apology for an offensive song selection in her 2020 Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 Show.

While the designer and singer was praised for the inclusivity of her fashion show, which streamed on Prime Video on Friday, she’s since faced backlash for having the lingerie models strut to the song “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe. The song, which is on the show’s official soundtrack, includes sacred Islamic verses — specifically a remix of a Hadith narration from the Prophet Muhammad about the end of times and judgment day — leading Rihanna’s Muslim fans to call her over it.

In an apology on Tuesday, Rihanna took responsibility for the “huge oversight” and vowed that it won’t happen again.

“I’d like to thank the Muslim community for pointing out a huge oversight that was unintentionally offensive in our savage x fenty show,” Rihanna wrote on social media Tuesday.

Baltimore-based fashion editor, stylist to appear on ‘Tamron Hall’ tv show

As a celebrity stylist and fashion editor, Baltimore-native Zoey Washington’s work has graced the pages of Vogue, Elle, Essence and other top fashion magazines. Wednesday, she’ll share some of her DIY craft tricks and trends on Tamron Hall, a syndicated daytime television talk show.

“We talk about how I got involved in DIY fashion; what I didn’t see in the market and how nothing really spoke to teens and tweens on their basic level,” said Washington, 38, who lives in Federal Hill.

Washington, a graduate of Garrison Forest School, Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University, believes that DIY fashion is the wave of the future — particularly with the younger generation.

“There is no faster fashion than reimagining fashion that you already own,” she explained. Her company SEWSQUAD, which launched in 2019, sells various sewing patterns along with DIY fashion and craft projects. “It’s budget friendly and easier.”

Rihanna Apologizes to the Muslim Community for Islamic Hadith in Show – E! Online

While Rihanna‘s brand has been hailed as an inclusive one, not all of her fans felt properly represented in her Savage x Fenty show. 

On Friday, Oct. 2, Rihanna’s second annual show for her lingerie brand debuted on Amazon Prime Video. While the highly anticipated show was met with praise and applause from some, not all were pleased with the multihyphenate star’s one-of-a-kind presentation. Specifically, Rihanna and the brand came under fire for the use of Coucou Chloe‘s track, “Doom,” during the show. The song reportedly contained a remix of a hadith narration. Hadith is defined as “a collection of traditions containing sayings of the prophet Muhammad which, with accounts of his daily practice (the Sunna), constitute the major source of guidance for Muslims apart from the Quran.”

Offended fans swiftly expressed their criticisms of the song’s use. “My religion is not your aesthetic!!!” some cried out in

Rihanna Apologizes for Using Song with Sacred Islamic Verses in Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 Fashion Show

Rihanna has apologized after receiving backlash for using a song that includes sacred Islamic scripture during her Savage X Fenty Vol. 2 lingerie fashion show, which was released on Prime Video last week.

Models danced to “Doom” by London-based producer Coucou Chloe during one segment of the show, and fans were quick to call attention to the fact that the 2017 song features a remix of a Hadith narration.

“There’s really no way we can let this slide,” one person wrote on Twitter alongside a screen recording of the dance number. “This makes me sick,” a second social media user replied.

In the Islamic faith, the Hadith is a sacred scripture of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet Mohammed. It “comes secondary only to the Quran in terms of textual authority,” according to CNN.

Chanel’s SS21 Show Took Micro Accessories to the Next Level

On October 6, Chanel kicked off the last day of this season’s Paris Fashion Week by reminding that big things can come in small, chic packages.

During Chanel’s Spring/Summer 21 show, which was held at the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées as it’s tradition, micro accessories caught our attention in a big way. Tiny bags ruled the show, seen both in the physical micro bags hanging off models’ shoulders and the small bags reimagined in the models’ jewelry. Some were big enough to still seem fairly usable while others called to mind Lizzo’s look from last year’s AMAs. Regardless of practicality, their stylishly eye-catching nature simply couldn’t be denied.
