Plus model Steven Green (aka Steven G) broke the Internet after starring in Rihanna’s all-inclusive Savage x Fenty fashion show. Now, he’s talking about his newfound fame (And how Rih and ’em slif in his DM’s). More inside…
 
One thing Rihanna wanted to display in her new Savage x Fenty lingerie fashion show was inclusivity. And she totally nailed it. The fashion maven picked models of all shapes and sizes to star in her https://theybf.com/2020/10/02/watch-rihanna%E2%80%99s-savage-x-fenty-sho… “>Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 2 that premiered on Amazon Prime Video October 2nd. The show featured a star-studded line up of models, including Lizzo and Willow Smith. Fans were entertained with a mega line-up of entertainment, including performances by Travis Scott, Ella Mai, Miguel, Roddy Rich, Bad Bunny, and Rosalia.
The “Diamonds” singer also incorporated male models in the show to flex in her new collaboration line for men with Diddy’s son/rapper https://theybf.com/2020/10/02/watch-rihanna%E2%80%99s-savage-x-fenty-sho… “>Christian Combs. And speaking of the men, one male model broke the damn Internet after his debut.  And you can see why.
When Steven Green (aka Steven G) was contacted via Instagram about appearing in RiRi’s show, he said he thought it was fake and asked if they knew what he looked like.  Ha!
He joined the “The Drew Barrymore Show” this week and dished on how it all went down:
Drew: Steven you are all the rage, everybody loves you. You’ve had such an incredible response. How does it feel to be representing men and have everyone so supportive and saying thank you for representing.
Steven: Honestly, that moment when I thought was just for me to get the opportunity to work with Rihanna and Savage X Fenty team became so much bigger. To see impact it has had on me and to really just take the initiative to go for your dreams and go without boundaries was amazing. Drew: I mean what does it feel like when you get called by a RiRi Savage X Fenty team.
Steven: It’s a dream, it’s definitely a dream. I thought it was a joke at first when their production team reached out via Instagram. I had to check to double check with my agent like, ‘Hey have they seen images of me. Are they sure what I look like?’ They definitely affirmed me in that moment to say, ‘Hey they want you. This is it, this is a moment.’ It’s a God dream for sure.
Drew: What do you think gave you the confidence to put yourself out there in the first place may I ask.
Steven: Honestly I think just being really in tune with myself and knowing gifts God has given me.

He’s been making his rounds too.
“I presumed this was just a mistake and I wouldn’t hear from them again,” he told In The Know magazine. “I was floored. I couldn’t believe that they actually wanted me to model for them.”

The photographer-turned-model said he never thought this would be his life right now.
“Never in a million years would I have considered myself a sex symbol, but to see the responses definitely confirmed that my size wasn’t much of a factor,” he told In The Know. “Of course, with the positives, there are always those negative and ignorant people who state their opinions which in turn highlights some very problematic issues within society.”

Turns out, Savage x Fenty was his first photoshoot and then, COVID. A Twitter user liked what she saw, shared it on Twitter and then he went viral. He told BYRDIE.com:
“My very first shoot was the Savage x Fenty shoot because as you know COVID hit in March and everything was shut down so I really wasn’t able to do a lot. So a lot of the content I was creating was at-home content. A lot of my portfolio was me and my wife. I was shooting the content myself. The producer from Savage reached out to me on Instagram, and he was like, ‘Hey, look, I wonder if you’d be interested in a new campaign.’ And I was like, ‘Whoa!'”

“The buzz came about when a girl posted me on Twitter. She wrote, ‘Okay, Rihanna’ with the eyes emoji with a screenshot from the e-commerce site. I didn’t do any of the launch campaign images or the show. So yeah, those were the images that kind of blew up from there.”

“Health doesn’t come in a size,” he continued. “You can look a certain way but that doesn’t mean you’re healthy, and you can look a certain way that doesn’t mean that you are healthy. We should focus on being confident because I feel like a lot of people who are a bigger size lack confidence, so they don’t even attempt to do the things that they desire to do. […] Rihanna is taking that step for us. It opened up that door for a lot of people to actually tap into something deeper than just body positivity, but really just hone in their gifts, talents, and their God-given abilities.”

He better say that. Steven said he works out three to four times a week, incorporating weightlifting as well as cardio.

So I first want to say THANK YOU to each and every person who has reached out and especially to those who’ve shared their stories of inspiration. I never would’ve thought my first time ever shirtless on the internet would be with @badgalriri for @savagexfenty. I was EXTREMELY hesitant the moment my agency confirmed but something in me knew I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by. I thought this was for me but this is for every guy built with some extra meat, that unbuttons that bottom button when tryna avoid the crease, that has to shop around like crazy cause the sizes for us are already gone but we sauce up a fit and still flex the drip. We here, we are sexy, and we are the wave. And don’t let nobody tell you that you aren’t! Huge thanks to my agency @bridgemodels for everything. They TRULY bridge the gap and know what true representation means. & also the Savage Team! Y’all talents made this so smooth and we’re a pleasure to work with. Production: @scottyvillegas_ : @cindygromero ; Style: @jessicaelisarosales / @kitawita7 ; Grooming: @hkassel / @__oskie__

They make a beautiful couple. And no disrespect to his queen, but we would love to see more of him in the fashion world.
