Rihanna has shared her reaction to an open letter from Slick Woods.
Woods gave birth to a baby boy last week just hours after walking the runway for Rihanna‘s Savage X Fenty fashion show at the New York Fashion Week. The model and the pop star have been close friends for the past few years after meeting in Paris in 2016 for her Puma Season 2 campaign. “I always thought that your sh*t was made for me, and I wanted nothing more than to model for you, so hearing that I was cast in your show had me ecstatic,” Slick Woods wrote in a letter to Rihanna published by Allure.
Woods added that Rihanna didn’t just open the doors for her, but also countless other models as she fights for “inclusivity” in the fashion industry. “You made inclusivity cool, and that’s revolutionary,” the model wrote. “You have my loyalty until the end of time.”
Rihanna posted the letter on her Instagram where she wrote, “[Slick Woods] I love you soooo much! Thank you for these beautiful words from your open letter in @allure !!! You have been just as significant to my platform sis! And you bout to knock motherhood out the park!”
