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.
