Why Celebs Love This Dsquared2 Sandal

There’s one shoe in particular that is topping the list of celeb-favored shoes of the moment: Dsquared2’s “Riri” sandal.

Of course, you know it’s a good shoe when it’s named after Rihanna, but she’s far from the only famous woman who loves these shoes. Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Rita Ora and Kendall Jenner, among others, have all been spotted wearing the heels.

Hadid hasn’t been afraid of repeatedly wearing her silver pair, which she wore when she co-hosted the American Music Awards last month, while at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party last week and on the red carpet at the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Awards this week.

At the 2016 MTV Movie Awards in April, Jenner took her look to the next level with the thigh-high version of the sandal.

So how exactly did this shoe gain such popularity? Well, there’s one person in particular (besides Rihanna) who has given these sandals a boost: Monica Rose. The celebrity stylist is responsible for outfitting Hadid, Jenner, Teigen, Hailey Baldwin and Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, all of whom have worn the sandals.

The nearly 5-inch sandals are available in black, gold or silver reptile leather and retail for $1,295. While the shoes are certainly not a bargain, these celebrities are proving that this style is a closet staple thanks to the universally flattering lacing and low-cut sides.
