October 31st, 2012 by Fashion Staff

If you follow rapper Ludacris via instagram then most likely you know last week he was kickin’ it with R&B diva Kelly Rowland, on set recording his new video for his song “Representin”. The rapper was even kind enough to post this picture of Kelly wearing these sick pair of heels!

Ms. Rowland was working it in these  B Brian Atwood Suede Colorblock Pumps. This standard silhouette was given a youthful twist, adding hot pink to the almond toe shoe, a double platform in blue and purple, an a bright yellow 5 1/4″ inch heel. So what’s there to love about B Brian Atwood? It’s a diffusion line to the premium Brian Atwood brand, which is a splendid option for you ladies who crave a designer shoe at a more cost friendly price point. This shoe is currently unavailable, however because B Brian Atwood creates jaw dropping shoes we had to find an alterative heel you can purchase now.

 

 

This pair still incorporates the platform and hot pink and blue colors but with a peep toe. You can find these online at Bloomingdales, retailing at $350 dollar, the price that the colorblocked pumps went for when they were being sold.

As you’ve noticed, we can’t help but enjoy seeing Rihanna photograph out an about, long hair, short hair – we don’t care – cause these days it’s all about her style & fashion. The Barbados diva was spotted in these Tom Ford Over the Knee Anaconda Boots.

 

The Italian made shoe are genuine anaconda, a pointed toe she leading up to a 24 inch shaft with a dipped back at the top! The inside is lined with Leather an a leather sole is also featured on the shoe. All of this is resting on a 4 1/4″ inch stiletto heel with golden tip.

 


Rihanna is known for her fashion forward looks which is why we love this outfit with these Tom Ford Heels! A very edgy and exotic look with a tomboy edge. Now these particular shoe may be a bit much for some of you divas however an over the knee boots are a great option to rock in the fall if your not ready to part with your mini summer pieces just yet! If your going to add some over the knee boots to your wardrobe for a day time look, take some notes from Rihanna and go for separates, making sure the top is a little more casual and relaxed, a like a Crew neck sweater or a T- shirt pared with cardigan, fusing a daytime everyday outfit with a night time evening shoes.

 

Ladies are you feeling this look by Rihanna? How would you rock over the knee boots, or would you even add them to your closet? Sound off below!
