It looked like Rihanna was dead set on getting people’s attention during Paris Fashion Week. We’re guessing she carefully planned every single outfit for each appearance she made. She hopped from Lanvin to Balmain to Dior decked in garb meant to draw eyes to her.
For the Lanvin presentation, Ri-Ri channeled her tomboy side and slipped into a trouser ensemble from the label’s pre-fall 2014 collection. She decorated the outfit with a furry stole, a hat, and a pair of masculine brogues.

Determined to keep all eyes glued on her, Rihanna switched into a more risqué number as soon as she hit the Balmain after-party. The second look consisted of nothing but a fishnet-stocking bodysuit and a black leather skirt — completely different from the green layered outfit she wore to the Balmain presentation, which she reportedly completed with a pair of “Impera” sandals from Christian Louboutin’s spring 2014 collection. These cutout lace-up pumps are also available in nude and black versions, as shown below.

Check out these Instagram pictures posted by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and another fan who attended the after-party. Clearly, Rihanna was going for daring as she proudly exposed her practically naked torso.
At the Dior show the following day, Ri-Ri channeled more of her inner vixen by wearing a short LBD with a deep neckline that showcased her bosom. She finished the piece with a poppy red coat and a pair of ankle-strap pumps that complemented her exposed thigh-high stockings.

We weren’t able to get a good picture of the shoes Rihanna wore at the Dior presentation, but you can check out this article for reference. If we’re not mistaken, her d’Orsays are from the label’s pre-fall collection — the same pair on the model below:

So, how do you find Rihanna’s PFW style so far? Truly wow, right?
We can’t wait to see what she’s going to put out for the other upcoming shows. Forget the fact that she was half naked at the party because she simply aced every look with flying colors. And let’s not forget that with every outfit she wore, she slipped into a pair of standout shoes.
Among the three shoe styles, the exquisite Louboutins take the cake for gorgeousness. They’re not available for pre-order yet, but if you need the fix, you can grab the Alice + Olivia “Dina” laser-cut pumps instead. They don’t have the ankle-wrap lace-up feature, but they’re just as wonderful:
And if you’re interested in the flared-heel silhouette of the singer’s Dior shoes, why not try a pair from the previous season? This discounted style from Bluefly is certainly worth checking out:
