Rihanna's boot steals the show

Rihanna's boot steals the show

Fans were reminded of Rihanna's boundary-pushing style this week

The multi-talented diva, who has only sometimes been seen in public since giving baby in May, was sighted on Saturday in New York wearing enormous boots.

Even though her RZA t-shirt, sunglasses, and snakeskin-print bag already provided a comfortable yet stylish ensemble, Rihanna elevated it with a pair of enormous, slouchy boots that touched the hem of her denim miniskirt.

The outfit indicates that the performer is still closely observing runway trends

 Her oversized shoes appeared from the most recent Spring/Summer 2023 collection by French designer Y/Project, which featured a pair of black denim boots dressed in a head-to-toe denim outfit.

This year, celebrities other than Rihanna have donned statement thigh-high boots (though hers arguably brought the most drama). Singer Dua Lipa wore a menswear-inspired button-down minidress and spotless white Bottega Veneta boots at the beginning of the month. 

The boots had a blockier appearance than previous figure-skimming versions thanks to the expert craftsmanship of the Italian brand's characteristic "intrecciato" leather weave, yet they were nonetheless understated.

Using the fashion game like no other

In a melancholy Instagram video this week, Kim Kardashian showed herself working in a dark gym while sporting slouched thigh-high boots.

The reality actress posed on various pieces of gym equipment while wearing a nude-tone bikini and a white cap-sleeved blouse, which seemed like an impractical training outfit.

Similar trends have also been seen on the runways. Several designers have brought back over-the-knee boots to go with their larger designs.

Acne Studios' towering riding boots provided gritty drama to Paris Fashion Week during the Fall/Winter 2022 season. Isabel Marant sent a slew of models down the runway in slouched thigh-highs (albeit theirs were noticeably smaller than Rihanna's).

Vivienne Westwood produced sculptural versions in teal and white, Chanel ventured into the unknown with a pair of reliable thigh-high rain boots, and Vetements produced a pair of daring, gender-neutral buckled boots.

It's unclear whether Rihanna's enormous interpretation of the style will catch on. After all, there are some things that only RiRi can accomplish.
