Rihanna stars on her second British Vogue cover this month, exclusively announcing and showcasing her collaboration with footwear maestro Manolo Blahnik.
Inside the issue, the singer models her favourite design from the new collection – a pair of thigh-high crystal-embellished boots – telling Vogue‘s Emily Sheffield that anyone wearing one of the six designs better be aware.
“The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes… I am sorry for that woman because I’m going to literally run after her, shouting, ‘Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?’ I’m going to have a moment!” she enthused, although the Work singer wouldn’t necessarily advise wearing them on a date.
“Depends on what kind of date you are trying to have,” she laughed. “Guuurrrl! Those boots are dangerous! If you’re trying to get back home to your bed, don’t wear them boots! You will get kidnapped in those boots, those boots are trouble.”
As for her own sense of style, so often lauded in the press, she credits her mother for inspiring her attitude when it comes to clothes.
“Oh my goodness, my mother – she is a woman’s woman,” she said. “I was obsessed with everything she did then, everything she wore, her scent, her shoes and her scarves… That was the glamour I wanted to be part of.”
