All About the Rihanna, Manolo Blahnik Partnership

As far as Makeover Essentials is concerned, Rihanna is an icon. She is an admirable philanthropist, talented entertainer, and queen of style. She recently showed off one of these talents through a partnership with Manolo Blahnik. Rihanna designed a collection of shoes, aptly named “So Stoned.”

There are four pieces in the collection, released in early July. The high-heeled mule, mid-heeled mule, and strappy heel are all glamorous. Our favorite is the pair of clear PVC sandals, which are embellished with Swarovski crystals. These “Poison Ivory” shoes are reminiscent of the gladiator style, and extend nearly to the knee. Rihanna herself wore them in her latest music video, “Wild Thoughts.” The limited-edition items come with a price tag ranging from $1,325 to $2,325.

The other shoes in the limited-edition collection are called “Spice” and “Bajan Princess.” “So Stoned” is the third and final installment of Rihanna’s Manolo Blahnik partnership. The first two collections were “Denim Desserts” and “Savage.”

Rihanna’s aptitude for fashion and design is a common topic of discussion throughout Makeover Essentials. She’s no stranger to the scene, having earned awards and worked with big names like Puma, Dior, and Armani in the past.

Rihanna is also launching her own makeup line, “Fenty Beauty,” in the fall, and we can’t wait to see it! Like Makeover Essentials on Facebook for more updates like these.
