Rihana has always talked about the importance of inclusivity when it comes to her empire. Her ads are known for including women and people of color with all body types. She told Elle, in 2019, “You belong in these pieces. You, me, trans women, women of all sizes, paraplegic women, all women are important women! All women belong here, on the biggest platform that I can give them.”
It’s clear that her vision and business model was needed and appreciated in the world as the company is now at 1 billion dollars. Thanks to her Fenty fortune Rihanna is officially the wealthiest female musician. Forbes reported in August of this year that the 33-year-old is now worth an estimated $1.7 billion. She is now second only to Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer, per Metro.
