Paris Fashion Week: Rihanna goes back to school

Monday’s runway presentations at Paris Fashion Week ended on a sporty note with Rihanna’s collection for Puma. The runway show took place at the National Library of France, which took on a decidedly back-to-school vibe.

The singer had models walk on the library tables to parade the new Fenty for Puma collection. 

The flashy sportswear inspired looks modeled by both male and female students included items such as jogging pants, micro-shorts, sports jerseys, and more that were more rap than university-appropriate.

One model threw pages from Essays by Michel de Montaigne, while another held her school books close to her like a quiet student while wearing an oversized twisted sweater. A cap, skateboard and school bag shaped like a teddy bear completed her look.
