Rihanna’s got a new favorite luxury shoe brand: Amina Muaddi.
The “Love on the Brain” singer stepped out to a club in Barbados wearing a laidback ensemble complete with green eyeshadow and heels from the rising shoe designer.
Rihanna wore a lacy green bra top with distressed denim cutoff shorts. She layered a floor-length green cardigan on top for a surprising, laidback twist.
For footwear, the Fenty Beauty mogul reached for shoes by Amina Muaddi — a buzzy, young designer who launched her eponymous label last year after breaking away from Oscar Tiye, a brand she co-founded. Rihanna’s choice was Muaddi’s Naima leather sandal, a slip-on style that boasts a 3.8-inch heel and a toe strap. The Italian-made shoe retails for $665.
When Muaddi’s first see, now, buy, now-collection launched this fall, the fashion world took notice. The 32-year-old’s success was awarded with FN’s Launch of the Year honor at the 2018 FN Achievement Awards.
“For a girl who comes where I come from — I’m half Jordanian and half Romanian — to be here, to be able to live my dreams and inspire Middle Eastern women to live their own dreams and be able to dress women I could have never imagined I’d be able to dress, it’s an honor,” she explained in an emotional speech at the awards show.
Muaddi’s Naima style appears to be a new go-to for Rihanna, as she was spotted out in New York this month clad in a chic black coat with the sandals.
The 31-year-old hitmaker has significant experience of her own in the fashion industry — she has her own Savage x Fenty lingerie company as well as a Puma sneaker deal — and she’s even a FNAA winner herself, having been honored with the Shoe of the Year award in 2016. The star nabbed the honor for her Fenty x Puma creeper, becoming the first woman to ever win for Shoe of the Year.
