Via Footwear News: Last month, Rihanna and Puma held a special pop-up shop at Milk Studios in Los Angeles for the latest Fenty x Puma collection.
That’s when the Fenty x Puma Bow Creeper Sandal made its debut, and at that point, the pop-up was the only place you could purchase the summery version of the sell-out Creeper sneaker. The sneakers feature the same gum sole as the Creeper sneaker, but instead feature a bow on top and laces that can be tied around the ankle.
Luckily for those that weren’t in the L.A. area, the Bow Creeper Sandal will be available on Puma.com at 10 a.m. ET today. In addition, Puma dropped several other items from Rihanna’s spring collection on Puma.com on Wednesday, including apparel and other footwear styles.
For those who still want to add the original Creeper style to their closets, Puma is currently stocking it in all-black patent and white and black leather.
Head to Puma.com at 10 a.m. to buy the Bow Creeper Sandal.
Via NYPost: Rihanna’s got shoes on the brain.
In June, the singer will launch her third and final collaboration with Manolo Blahnik, the designer exclusively tells Threads.
The So Stoned sandal capsule they created in between dance breaks — priced from $1,265 to $2,325 and debuting in June — features Swarovski crystals and Perspex clear heels.
While Rihanna looks stunning in her Manolos, Blahnik doesn’t mind when she kicks them off: “She looks better with no shoes, actually. She looks beautiful. No makeup, nothing. I’m absolutely mesmerized by her face and her eyes.”
It seems they found shoe love.
Via WWD: Rihanna’s impact on the fashion world is indisputable. Now the singer has revealed that she will further strengthen her ties to the industry by collaborating with The New School’s Parsons School of Design, Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation and Haitian artists to develop a line of merchandise.
Sales of the product will help support the Grammy winner’s Clara Lionel Foundation, which was founded in 2012 to benefit impoverished communities worldwide in areas like health care and education.
Select students of the art and design school will have the opportunity this summer to work with local Haitian artists at the Design, Organization, Training Center in Port-au-Prince. Karan, Parsons and designer Paula Coles founded the center as a creative meeting place offering vocational training and materials to the Haitian artist community.
“We are ecstatic that our students will have the opportunity to work with and develop a merchandise line for Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, that, like Parsons, shares a strong commitment to creating positive social change,” explained Alison Mears, director of the Healthy Materials Lab at Parsons who was instrumental in launching D.O.T.
On May 22, Rihanna will be honored at the Parsons Benefit in New York City and will reveal the winners of the Design Fellowship program, which sends three Parsons students to Haiti for six to eight weeks beginning in early June.
On Thursday (May 4), Rihanna was photographed heading to the set of Ocean's 8 to film additional scenes. Click here for photos.
In case you missed the film's first look:
In Summer 2018…the tide will turn. Here’s your First Look at Oceans 8.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ first look at “Ocean’s 8” from one of New York City’s most iconic locales: the subway. In Summer 2018, the tide will turn as (L-r) Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou (Cate Blanchett); Nine Ball (Rihanna); Amita (Mindy Kaling); Constance (Awkwafina); Rose (Helena Bonham Carter); Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway); and Tammy (Sarah Paulson).

Via Vogue: Tonight, when Rihanna hit the 2017 Met Gala red carpet, it was a full-on fashion fantasy. Arriving to celebrate the Costume Institute exhibition “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”, the singer wore a Comme des Garçons look, straight off the Fall 2016 runway, that was an architectural wonder.
Ancipation was high for Rihanna’s look, particularly given the night’s avant-garde dress code, and she did not disappoint. Originally modeled by Anna Cleveland in Paris, the sculptural piece was inspired by 18th-century “punks” and consisted of floral fabrics, layered and pulled apart like petals.
Rihanna has a long history of shutting down the Met Gala red carpet. In 2015, she turned up in a stunning canary yellow cape and gilded headdress to celebrate “China: Through the Looking Glass.” Trimmed with fur and painstakingly embroidered by hand, the couture piece by Chinese designer Guo Pei took two years to create and was a pitch-perfect tribute to the night’s theme. Last year, her presence was sorely missed. Safe to say she’s more than made up for it tonight.
Surprise! Rihanna visited a FENTY PUMA by Rihanna pop up shop in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 18) and caused quite a stir.
She posed for photos with fans, went live on Instagram and was the perfect cashier.
