Rihanna’s back, and she’s looking exquisite in waist-high denim boots in the pages of British Vogue. Unlike her unapologetic display of nakedness on the cover of Lui Magazine back in 2016, this editorial — her fourth for the English publication, if I’m not mistaken — involves less skin, and is more high fashion. She still exposes her derriere and goes topless, but it’s done in a tasteful way.

If you read the issue, you will find the singer talk about her (design) collaboration with shoe legend, Manolo Blahnik, and the story behind those waist-high denim boots.

She looks really classy in these photos. Would you agree? They’re a far cry from the shots she did for Lui, which were very, well, er, bold.

I love Rihanna. She’s so comfortable in her skin. She oozes with confidence, and nothing is sexier than that.

Now back to those waist-high denim boots. Yes, they are waist-high. And yes, Rihanna designed them with Mr. Blahnik himself. The butt-exposing pair is not a closet staple, but they’re the kind of boots you wear if you want to make a statement. The singer also admitted that she’ll only wear them on dates wherein the goal is to end up in bed. Talk about being candid!

The Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik collection is called Denim Desserts, and will involve six shoe styles. Pricing will start at $895 and will go up as high as $3995. The limited-edition line will be released this coming May, so if you’re a big fan and you plan on grabbing at least a pair from the collection, be sure to check out the Blahnik stores in New York, Hong Kong, and London.

If you’re dying to see the other shoe styles Ri-Ri will be launching on May 5, it’s your lucky day because I managed to find these pics on the net. Be sure you have a thousand dollars lying around the house in a few months, because that’s how much you’ll be spending.

I’d like to call this collection “dressed-up denim”, specifically because of the embellishments. I wouldn’t mind wearing them; even the boots! What about you?
