Now that the first leg of fashion month has officially come to a close, you can actually catch up on every standout street-style and red-carpet ensemble you may have missed on your first round of searches. Don't forget to grab a pen and paper, either, because there are plenty of sartorial notes you should be taking — or, well, at least getups to try and commit to memory for the long run. First on your list of NYFW fashion favorites list, then, is Cara Delevingne's Savage x Fenty show look — which was an edgy take on one of the most classic outfit formulas of all time.
There were a lot of NYFW shows that nailed it, from boasting an extra-stylish front-row lineup to successfully churning out runway looks that made attendees ooh and aah in wonder. But perhaps the one (under-the-radar) presentation that shook up fashion week the most was none other than Rihanna's Savage x Fenty show (to no surprise, right?)
Snaps of the Savage x Fenty show are quite rare — phones were locked up and professional images are also scarce — but from what some attendees divulged, Rihanna put on one spectacle that you, too, can take in on Sept. 20, when it streams in its entirety on Amazon. What you can admire right at this moment from said fashion event, though, are the red-carpet looks that debuted.
Prior to walking the runway, Delevingne shut down the Savage x Fenty red (well, actually, black) carpet in a ensemble that was right in line with her usual style sensibilities — aka, it was edgy in the best way. The model opted for a LBD from Reformation, which features a crew neckline, center front buttons, and short sleeves, with romantic lace detailing throughout.
As per usual, Delevingne put her own edgy spin on the dress with her styling choices. She kept several buttons open, revealing a lace-y black bralette that's likely from Rihanna's newest lingerie collection, and chose chunky black combat boots as the grounding element.
Stacks of gold jewels added some glam, while her dark, smoky eye and sky-high ponytail further upped the grunginess.
As Delevingne proves so effortlessly, the beauty of an LBD is that it acts as a blank canvas that can be styled in so many ways. Keep it elegant with refined accessories, or edge it up with grungier pieces like combat boots or a leather belt.
