ELLENBROOK’S Shanaya Peters has been hand-picked by music megastar Rihanna to front her latest fashion venture, Savage X Fenty lingerie.
It’s a dream gig for the plus-sized beauty who has been modeling with Vivien’s for a year.
The Bachelor of Science graduate flew to New York last week for the star-studded launch
party where she met the superstar designer and a swag of Fenty models from across the globe. “It was such a surreal moment for me,” Peters, 21, said. “It was like meeting my best friend, she’s so sweet and such an amazing business woman — I had the time of my life.” Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty line sends a strong inclusive message, representing 36 different sizes ranging from XS to 3XL and eight different shades of nude. “Fenty is known for their diverse campaigns and including women from all walks of life, from all types of cultural backgrounds,” said Peters, who graduated from the University of WA with a double major in psychology. “Fenty Beauty alone was revolutionary to the beauty industry and really emphasized the importance of representation in advertising. “It was no different with Savage x Fenty. I met so many beautiful women who looked so unique and had different stories to tell — women who were unapologetically themselves and whose beauty was cemented in their ability to confidently assert themselves in an industry dominated by Eurocentric beauty standards.”
