From the runways of Paris straight to Rihanna’s closet! During the Saint Laurent runway show at Paris Fashion Week, models strutted in fierce ostrich feather over-the-knee boots on September 26 in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Less than one week later, Rihanna is already rocking the “sexy Yeti” boots herself. The 29-year-old Fenty Beauty founder showed off a snap wearing the fashion forward boots via her Instagram on October 2.
During the Saint Laurent show, designer Anthony Vaccarello showed the white feather boots on a model who was wearing a black dress with billowing sleeves and a thigh high slit, but Ri Ri put her own twist on the look, naturally. She chose a black turtleneck dress from Off White by Virgil Abloh while wearing the YSL statement shoes. By keeping her dress simple and her hair slicked back in a high ponytail, she let the showstopper boots take center stage.
This isn’t the first time that the Fenty x Puma designer scored Saint Laurent shoes straight off the runway. During their Paris Fashion Week show last season on March 1, the crystal slouch booties that cost $10,000 were the item everyone was obsessing over from their runway show. Despite long wait lists, Rihanna was already wearing them on March 5.
“That girl of Saint Laurent … she wants to have fun,” Vaccarello explained backstage of his design vibe. “She’s not depressed. She wants to enjoy life!” We can’t imagine a better celeb that embodies that philosophy than Ri Ri.
