There are a million reasons to envy Zendaya, but this latest reason just might take the cake. After collaborating with Manolo Blahnik in 2016, Rihanna decided to gift the young pop sensation with three pairs of shoes from the “Rihanna x Manolo Blahnik” collection.
One year later, we finally spotted a pair of those shoes on Zendaya’s feet. The actress debuted one of her gifted pieces at the “Spiderman: Homecoming” photo call in Madrid, Spain.

The former Disney star stunned in a fluttery blue dress by Jonathan Simkhai that gave us some major Carrie Bradshaw vibes.
From her three choices, Zendaya picked out the “Sea Salt Sequins” pumps from Rihanna’s Manolo Blahnik collaboration. She completed her look with toned-down bronze makeup and gorgeous natural curls.

The two iconic women seem to have a genuine friendship. When probed as to why it took her so long to wear Rihanna’s shoes, the Spiderman star tweeted, “I told my mutha Ri I would slay in her Manolo pumps one day, I’ve been preparing for this day, I would never let her down.”
And slay, she did.
