Only one venue made sense for a multimedia extravaganza as high production as Yeezy Season 3: Madison Square Garden. Kanye West managed to make full use of the enormous space, filling it with 20,000 guests that included the whole Kardashian brood and hundreds of models. Closeups of supers like Naomi Campbell and Veronica Webb played on the Jumbotron while West looked on from a laptop, pulsing his “The Life of Pablo” album through the speakers.

Fenty x Puma by Rihanna
No one knew exactly what to expect the night of Rihanna’s Fenty show for Puma, and the singer-turned-designer didn’t disappoint when she welcomed guests into a forest – of the wintry, haunting variety, no less. Strictly monochrome, with a mirrored ceiling and reflective floor, it was a perfect fit for Rih’s trademark oversized hoodies and bombers. As for the sheer tops and underwear looks, well, they definitely got the chilly vibe across.

After last season’s surprise dance performance choreographed by Justin Peck, Opening Ceremony changed gears – and galaxies – with a futuristic fall show, complete with suspended metallic spaceships that matched the models’ glittery makeup and the collection’s sci-fi motifs.
