Rihanna wearing the printed boots from Tom Ford's Autumn Winter 2013 show
Earlier this week we saw Jennifer Lopez steal the show at the AmFar Gala wearing a slinky purple metallic lace Tom Ford number - and now Rihanna is donning some TF herself. This time, she's opted for that pair of outrageously printed over-the-knee boots from the designer's Autumn Winter 2013 collection. 'My baby daddy loves me!!!! #TomFord I love you! Thank you!' Rihanna captioned alongside this Instagram pic of a trussed-up box courtesy of Tom Ford. Did Mr TF drop off the pair of boots now that she's in London?
Special delievery from Mr Ford...
It'd be hardly surprising considering Ford recently spoke about why Ri-Ri is the perfect ambassador for this exact collection. 'You have to have a point of inspiration. At one point of my life, it would have been Grace Jones. At one point, it would have been Diana Ross—I did a Diana Ross collection at Saint Laurent,' he explained. 'Whenever I’m working on a collection, everything does have to be real, and those outfits are real to me. If I think, “OK, who is wearing this and where is she going?” And I think, “OK, that’s Rihanna, and she’s going to her lawyer’s office in that all-black outfit and she’s hung over and that’s why she’s wearing those glasses. Yet she’s still a rock star.”' Indeed!
Rihanna's style is perfectly in tune with Tom Ford's creations
But instead of going for the full Tom Ford look, which opened his show last February, Rihanna chose to pair her boots with a side-slit white T-shirt dress and obligatory Chanel cuffs. Although the boots are pretty flamboyant, we’ve got to say this look is actually relatively demure (by Ri-Ri standards, that is). There's no hooded streetwear and not too much bling - could a Tom Ford-Chanel mix be the perfect wardrobe combination for the songstress? Let's be honest, we wouldn't say no.
