Rihanna is a familiar face at Paris Fashion Week. But this time the Barbadian superstar swapped the front row for the catwalk, unveiling her sophomore Fenty Puma collection. Returning to her side line career as a fashion designer last night - a project facilitated by sports giant Puma and named Fenty after the singer's little used surname - the star enlisted a slew of top models in a show watched by a small audience of industry insiders. Rihanna also took a turn on the catwalk, wearing a pale pink broderie anglaise tracksuit from the collection to take her bow. Having showcased her first collection for Puma at New York Fashion Week in February, the decision to move the show to Paris suggested a determination on Rihanna's part to win over the high fashion crowd. “It’s a dream for me to be able to present my second collection of Fenty Puma by Rihanna in Paris,” the singer said ahead of the show. “I approached this season very differently and felt the theme and concept was best suited for one of my favourite cities, Paris.”
