Rihanna is killing it at the moment. Her make-up line is disappearing hastily from the shelves with ever increasing rate, with droves of Rihanna and make-up lovers waking up at the crack of dawn to get their mitts on the Fenty foundations and more.

Her song 'Wild Thoughts' was undeniably the tune of the summer and her latest Fashion Week showing was nothing short of spectacular.

Oh yeah, and she's our October cover star.

So basically, we love everything Riri.

On Monday at New York Fashion Week, Rihanna showed her Fenty x Puma Spring/Summer 2018 show.

With mounds of pink sand, bikers and enough neoprene to clothe a surf team, everyone was in love with the show.

One of those people was model and mogul Ashley Graham, who sat front row and Insta-storied the whole thing, whooping in enjoyment and 'yaas'ing her way through it.

However, she told a Yahoo reporter that, for her, there was something missing.

Graham prides herself on her vision of inclusivity. She wants to see women of all sizes and colours making their way onto the catwalk, and therefore, totally loved how ethically diverse Rihanna's runway was.

With models like Adwoa Aboah, Joan Small and Slick Woods all over the fashion dirt track, it's obvious to see why Graham said, 'That was an amazing show.' The America's Next Top Model judge also said, 'It was a very diverse group of women, which was really nice.'

But, there was one thing the 29 year-old did think singer Rihanna could improve on though, saying 'But how dope would it have been to see some curves on the runway?'

Graham continued talking on the topic, saying, 'I think there's some designers who might want to have curves on the runway, but haven't figured it out maybe? It's funny to me, because I'll look at runways and think, I'd look so great in those clothes or, I know curvy women who would look so great in those clothes.'

Something to note for next time maybe.
