Rihanna took us back to school with a colourful PFW show

Rihanna took over France’s national library with her bold and colourful schoolwear-inspired collection at Paris Fashion Week.

Models wearing oversized sweaters and tiny skirts in eye-popping orange, yellow and purple tones paraded over tabletops at the Fenty X Puma show on Monday.

Rihanna, 29, also graced the makeshift catwalk at The National Library of France in an unmissable oversized coat in neon green.

Styles were inspired by classic student uniforms, including jackets, jumpers, socks and hats representing Fenty University and the Puma sports brand.

To add to the theme, the social media invitation was designed to look like detention cards.

Among the guests were Cara Delevingne and Salma Hayek, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
