Rihanna struck a pose to celebrate her latest Fenty Beauty accomplishment.

The singer and beauty mogul took to Instagram to share the news that Fenty’s popular lip gloss lines, Gloss Bomb and Gloss Bomb Heat, were top-selling products in North America. To commemorate the occasion, she wore a flared denim mini skirt with an orange and light blue sweater. Keeping in line with her penchant for coordinating colors, the “Desperado” musician paired the pieces with a vintage orange Chanel bag with a white chain handle and blue hoop earrings — plus a painting of rapper Lil Mama.

On the shoe front, Rihanna wore sleek turquoise mules by the it-girl beloved brand The Attico. Her Kaia style featured 4-inch rectangular block heels, as well as squared toes. Though the singer’s pair appears to be from an older collection, they still tied into the rise of mules that’s overtaken the fashion industry in the last several years.

Heeled mules are one of the summer’s biggest shoe trends, due to their ’90s and early 2000’s roots and ability to easily slip on and off. The most popular styles, like Rihanna’s, often feature squared toes for a true fashion throwback. Stars like Karlie Kloss, Priyanka Chopra, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been seen in similar pairs from top brands like Bottega Veneta, By Far, and Versace in recent weeks.

When it comes to shoes, there isn’t a style that Rihanna hasn’t worn. The Grammy-winning singer has been a fixture in the fashion world for years, with a rotation of shoes to match from top brands like Christian Louboutin, Tom Ford, and Balenciaga, among numerous others. Most recently, pumps by Amina Muaddi and Manolo Blahnik have been her consistent go-to’s. Aside from her best-selling Fenty brand that includes best-selling beauty and lingerie lines, Rihanna also collaborated on a shoe collection with Muaddi before the Fenty fashion collection was paused by LVMH.
