Zendaya Owned the Red Carpet in Manolos She Got From Rihanna

Zendaya waited a year before wearing her Rihanna x Manolo pumps — but when the former Disney star finally donned the shoes, she made sure to do it right.

The 20-year-old attended the “Spider Man: Homecoming” film photocall in Madrid clad in a Jonathan Simkhai blue silk midi dress that went perfectly with the shiny pointy-toed heels.

In June 2016, Zendaya posted an Instagram of three fashionable pairs of shoes that Rihanna gave her, from a limited collaboration between the Barbadian singer and designer Manolo Blahnik.

While a year might seem like too long to wait to wear such a stylish pair of shoes, Zendaya took to Twitter to let fans know she has a good reason, writing: “I told my mutha Ri I would slay in her Manolo pumps one day, I’ve been preparing for this day, I would never let her down.”

With such a polished red carpet look, there’s no doubt Zendaya made Rihanna proud in those Manolos.
