'Gym Marie Antoinette' inspires Rihanna's sophomore Puma line
BEFORE she even set foot on the Paris catwalk, singer Rihanna was making headlines with her second collection for Puma, sending supermodel Gigi Hadid off sprinting in a pair of stiletto sneakers.
In pictures released on the 28-year-old star's Instagram, Hadid was shown running and jumping in high-heeled trainers in a long dress with a swimsuit-like bodice.
Another had her stretched out in a skin-tight body suit like a sprinter set to speed off down the track in the same white stilettos with the German brand's trademark black stripe.
The carefully choregraphed series of leaks hinted that the Barbadian star is bringing colour to her Puma x Fenty (ccrt) range, after a debut show based on black and white.
The show was streamed live on Wednesday on the rapper Jay-Z's Tidal platform and appeared to feature feminine elements in soft shades.
The collection is said to be inspired by the concept of "Marie Antoinette at the gym", in reference to the former queen of France.
