Her cosmetics line debuted with 40 foundation shades, while her lingerie line has been applauded for catering to a range of skin tones and body types. Her fashion line, meanwhile, caters for women up to a size US 14. In a recent interview, she states that women are forces of this earth. They are multifaceted, complex, vulnerable yet bulletproof, and Fenty speaks to all of their intricacies. She had also stated that she has moved to London to be closer to LVMH.
