Rihanna's Savage x Fenty Features Model With Limb Differences

Singer and actress Rihanna launched a lingerie brand, Savage x Fenty in 2018, and part of her mission was representation. Most recently she hired model Lyric Mariah Heard who has limb differences in order to feature some of her lingerie — a move well received by abled and disabled individuals alike.

Mariah was born with a congenital condition called amniotic band syndrome where the bands supporting and protecting the fetus wrap around limbs and organs, causing them to lose blood flow to the bound areas. Heard now models with her prosthetic leg and three fully developed fingers on her left hand. Her first modeling gig was a breast cancer awareness project through her high school, and now she models for brands such as Dolls Kill, Love, Vera
