Rihanna launched her limited-edition shoe collab with Manolo Blahnik on May 5, and her fans managed to crash the designer’s website (again and again and again).  The collection features six different shoe styles, including a pair of $4,350 thigh-high denim boots with an embellished garter belt attached.  So, yes, denim assless chaps that are more expensive than most people’s monthly rent payments.

Oh!  But they come with a sketch signed by both Rihanna and Blahnik, so they basically pay for themselves (or something like that….right?).  Check ’em out for yourself below, and see how an editor at Racked styled them (before she was asked to leave the store) here.

Personally, I happen to detest western-inspired embellishments, denim boots, and, the real clincher, assless chaps, so I will not be snagging a pair of these bad boys anytime soon.  But hey, that just means one more pair available for those of you who love them.  On that note, I leave you with a shot featuring Jennifer Lopez donning a pair in her new “Ain’t Your Mama” video.

Style Muse: Happy Birthday to Mary Kate & Ashley!

Today celebrates the 28th Birthday of the It-Twins who so many of us have admired since they were in diapers in Full House.  Growing up, I idolized Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen‘s sense of style, and spent my allowance money on anything they were wearing that week (while singing to “Gimme Pizza”, of course).  It’s amazing that we are still idolizing their unique styles over 20 years later.

In honor of their fabulous style, they are today’s style muse.  Get some outfit inspiration below!
