Rihanna just appeared on the British Vogue cover and announced her shoe collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. With Rihanna’s 'badgal' taste you know she won't be designing a chique pair of satin heels. "Guuurrrl! Those boots are dangerous!" Rihanna told Vogue. "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.”

Pointy thigh-highs
In collaboration with Manolo Blahnik she designed a small collection of heels called Denim Desserts. The most outstanding pair of the collection are the '9 to 5 Boots' which Rihanna is wearing on the cover. It is a thigh-high, stiletto-heeled denim boot, which features a pointed toe and an elaborate crystal trim along the top, which grazes the top of the thigh and snakes up the waist. It's then fastened with a belt, whith on the top one of Blahnik's signature sparkly buckles.

The other three shoes are also made of denim. First there is the Dancehall Cowgirl which is a short denim lace-up boot, the Rih-viaa, a strappy stiletto sandal, and the Sea Salts, a closed-toe sandal covered in blue sequins. The four limited-edition designs will be strictly available at Monolo Blahnik boutiques in New York City, London, and Hong Kong.
