However, it was involved in a controversy last year after the singer decided to cast Johnny Depp in her 2022 Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 fashion show. While he was the “first male in Savage X Fenty show history to take the role,” the Diamonds singer faced quite a criticism for his cameo in the fashion show.

The switch will reportedly take place on 26 June, and the new CEO has shared that she is “thrilled to join the Savage X Fenty family.” She has also stated that she found the brand’s “inclusivity and fearlessness” inspiring and wants to continue what Rihanna started with the launch of her beauty and fashion line.
