It may have only debuted on September 24, but the Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 3 has already taken the online world by storm. And with good reason. Featuring a diverse roster of models and several iconic performances, the star-studded event pulled out all the stops. Including, of course, its exclusive - or should we say, nonexistent - guest list...

That's right: not only was there no live audience this year, but RiRi deployed drones and close-up cameras to bring the sexy production to life. Featuring four sizzling collections - Caged Lace, Pleated Lamé, Cold Hearted Snake, and Leather Tease - the show turned up the heat. As for who modeled this year's lingerie?

The September 24 production brought out many familiar faces, including Gigi Hadid and Vanessa Hudgens. But let's take a moment of appreciation for Emily Ratajkowski, whose return to the runway had us doing a double-take. In case you forgot, the hot momma recently welcomed her first child, Sylvester. But one look at her toned abs, and we certainly wouldn't have known any better.

Then there were the performances, which were just as noteworthy. The show kicked off with chilling vocals from Novah, who rose to fame after covering RiRi's hit single Diamond. Safe to say, she certainly set the standards high. But the performances that followed - including ones from BIA, Normani, Nas, and Ricky Martin - certainly slayed.

"Our challenge every year is just to expand our ray of inclusivity," RiRi explained. "That's what the show is all about: representation." Check out the diverse 40-minute Savage X Fenty special for yourself here, and stay tuned for further updates.

And on that note, feel free to take a bow, Rihanna!
