Rihanna schooled the fashion crowd on Monday night (March 6), presenting her "Detention" themed fall 2017 Fenty for Puma collection in a Hollywood-worthy production at the Bibliotheque National de France.

Surrounded by stacks of books three floors high, showgoers were seated at study tables the length of the room, that also doubled as the runways.

Cara Delevingne got into the role of a delinquent wearing a Fenty hoodie, and sliding into a seat next to study buddies Nick and Joe Jonas. Future was also in the seats, near Kering boss Francois Henri Pinault and his wife Salma Hayek, who was wearing a varsity jacket from the Kering-owned Puma sportswear collection.

The show started with a flurry of lights and models filing out in front of the shelves, hanging off the railings and scowling like moody teenagers.

Then they headed downstairs and walked the study tables as music blared. It was electrifying. The photo ops couldn't have been better, as the male and female models stomped by in all manner of cool-looking university wear, from a tennis sweater dress to a tartan bustier, velour track suits to cropped puffer jackets.

The feet were at nearly eye level, letting everyone take in all the new Fenty thigh high sneaker boots, Mary Jane sock booties and creepers, in mixed tartan, of course.

By the time Rihanna took her bow, she was beaming and Delevingne couldn't contain herself, jumping up to applaud. Even Pinault seemed pleased.

Forget detention, I give Rihanna a grade A.
