For her final collection with Manolo Blahnik, a collaboration that started with ”Denim desserts” back in May 2016 and continued with ”Savage” a couple of months later, Rihanna has created 4 embellished heels that are truly the best we’ve gotten from Fenty’s stay in the luxury shoe biz (alongside the 9 to 5’s).

This third and final collection is called ”So stoned” (I see what you did there Rih) and $he made sure to wear one of the designs in the video for Wild Thoughts. The shoe is called ”Poison Ivy” and will cost about 1000x more than any mortal can afford (thanks to capitalism and his friend class differences). Looks amazing though.

It’s not always she’ll promote her work and/or designs but we should all consider us lucky this month of June because both video and shoes are getting the best of treatments. Yesterday Rihanna posted three gorgeous pictures, taken by her main photographer Dennis Leupold, of the shoes on her Instagram. Below are ”Bajan Princess”, ”Spice” and ”Poison Ivy” (in that order):

The final design is called ”Purple Chalice”, which we’ve only gotten a promo pic of so far:

All the shoes have Swarovski crystals on them, cost between $1,265 to $2,325 and will be available for purchase on July 6th over at manoloblahnik.com.

Rihanna served as usual. After HOURS of waiting she finally stepped out and graced us with another Met Gala delivery.

Tonight’s event is honoring Comme des Garçons’ designer Rei Kawakubo, but tbh most attendants ignored the theme and went for same old same old (yes, especially pointing at you Kylie Jenner). Rihanna went all in though, successfully following the theme while also making it incredibly her. Look at the dress and the shoes and the makeup. I suspect it is Fenty Beauty, launching this fall (look for it at Sephora).

Besides from Rih, here are my favorite looks from the evening:

Zoe Kravitz because look at her, a glamazon angel.

Zendaya <3

Diddy and Cassie in an iconic moment.

One more pic because they both look bossy.

Tracee Ellis Ross. I love this woman so much.

Janelle Monaé.

La La, fresh out of a divorce. Fun fact, she wore a ring on every finger but one…

Rita Ora.

And Ruth Negga’s dress seems so pleasing and I’d want something like this to hide but also show off in if I ever went to one of these things.

Bonus: Jaden Smith with his own hair as an accessory. (?!?!)

I saw Rih’s latest collection for her FENTY x PUMA line glued to multiple live streams, admiring the catwalk in awe together with one of my BFFs. Rihanna’s projects have a way of making me feel part of something bigger, be it her excellence, fanbase or friendships. I think it’s amazing how she manages to bring that feeling to me not only through her music but with fashion, interviews and performances as well.

How amazing isn’t it that fashion, music, art, movies, literature, architecture etc can make you feel things? For me it’s one of the best parts of life, to experience a physical sensation thanks to the arts. That’s something worth fighting for. I’m thinking of Trump’s plan to eliminate all funding to programs like the National Endowment of the Arts, for example. That can’t be allowed. We can’t allow it. Art and the opportunity to practice it is vital for the quality of life and a healthy democracy since it allows us to feel, reflect, experience new things and challenge our way of thinking. Which is of course exactly what oppressors try to suppress.

A group of people that truly understand the link between art and quality of life are fangirls (we live for it after all!). So I decided to ask around:

How does the new Fenty x Puma collection make you feel?

FullSizeRender”Slayrage”.

”I have experienced a new feeling. I call it slayrage. It’s similar to cuteness-rage (when you see a baby or animal that is so cute you can’t handle it and you get mad instead)only it’s when you see someone slaying real bad. What triggered it? Seeing first a picture from the Fenty x Puma line and then pics from Zara Larssons nike cooperation. Like she put split pants on top of some silk boxer short??? Who the hell thinks of that? And it looks so amazing my head wants to explode??? Like in a butch but gay and silk underwear and new way to expose the thighs kind of way???”

A few of Dan’s favorite looks from the collection.

”The new collection makes me feel SOOO happy! To see Rihanna grow from such a small artist into the successful musician and fashion designer she has become is inspiring! I’m super proud of her. I love how the collection is based on an ”American cliques” theme, from goths to skaters, to nerds and preppies and bad girls! It has something for everybody and is definitely my favorite FENTYxPUMA collection so far!”

Some of Vinnie’s favorite looks from the collection.

This collection makes me happy. I love it because I’m so comfortable with this style. I could see myself wearing so many pieces from this collection. I definitely loved this one the most out of all, although the Fenty x Puma collections from before were marvelous as well. I was not expecting this at all, but Fenty never disappoints.”

”Even though my student life is ending this June and I could not be more upset, this line brings back my university life in a much cooler and more elegant way as Fenty University. I can’t wait to experience my new university. ”

A pic of her leaving the restaurant in Paris…That evening she waited in the car and when everyone left and I stood there with friends she turned on her light in the car and started waving at us and throwing kisses. /Nathalie

”It made me feel so excited!!! She’s so creative… I even went to Paris to support her 3rd fashion show… Can’t wait until this collection be available!”

Shortly after visiting Harvard, Rihanna started her own university. In form of a fashion show. 55 looks was presented at the French National library for Fenty x Puma’s third collection earlier this evening and Rih took us to school, or rather detention, while serving major Hogwarts feels (a good thing). I was happily surprised to see that the livestream on Rihanna’s Instagram came from backstage while the official PUMA livestream showcased the runway. It was such a treat to see her in action and be able to listen in while she worked.

Other highlights: Slick Woods opening the show, Cara Delevingne jumping up to give Rih a standing ovation and Mama Fenty looking proud and ah-mazing per usual.
