FENTY PUMA by Rihanna Fall / Winter 2017 Collectio

Preppy outfits, stunning models, and a huge green coat - it was epic.

Rihanna debuted her Fenty x Puma AW17 collection in Paris this week and she served up some serious looks.

The R&B songstress made her return to Paris Fashion week after her debut last season, with her new university-inspired collection aptly being named 'Fenty University'.

Fittingly, the preppy looks were displayed inside The National Library of France, where Ri's models strutted their stuff down catwalks fashioned out of study tables.

Rihanna herself later took to the stage for a final bow, rocking an oversized lime green fluffy coat.

And of course, she looked incredible.

The show marks Rihanna's third collection with sports brand Puma.

The first had a darker, edgier vibe, whilst the second was inspired by 'Marie Antoinette at the gym'. Many describe her third collection as 'school kids gone bad'.

Famous attendees of the high-profile event included Ri's frequent collaborators Future, DJ Mustard and The Dream.

Also present at the show were model Cara Delevingne, actress Salma Hayek and musician brothers Joe and Nick Jonas.

Rihanna's family could also be seen supporting from the front row, beaming with pride.

The invites for the show were just as tongue-in-cheek as Ri's latest designs.

Sent in the form of detention cards, the singers fans were told the time, date and location details enabling them to watch a live stream of the show online.

And, of course, the soundtrack was just as attitude-driven as the clothing.

The show kicked off with an atmospheric cover of ‘Creep' by Radiohead, before Die Antwoord tracks 'Happy Go Sucky F**ky' and ‘I Fink You Freaky’ hit the speakers.

M.I.A’s 'Bad Girls’ rounded off the show in typical sassy Ri style.

Before the show kicked off, Rihanna hit the catwalk in preparation for the big event, sharing a behind the scenes video with her 50.3 million Instagram followers.
