On Tuesday night, Rihanna accepted her award for shoe of the year at the 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards. As the very first woman to win the award, we knew Rih would step out in something unexpected -- but no one expected a baseball cap and velour. 

Wearing a pair of her award-winning Fenty x Puma Creepers, the "This Is What You Came For" singer paired the shoe of the year with all Vetements Spring 2017, a collection that was described to Vogue as "not one collection, but 18." Almost all the runway looks featured pieces designed by outside brands, from luxury Italian, trench coat designer Brioni to the ultimate in Americana denim, Levi's. "We thought we’d go straight to the brands who make all these things best, and ask to do something in our way with each one," Demna Gvasalia, designer of Vetements, told Vogue.


While Rihanna didn't wear one of their men's Hanes tees or a pair of the waist-high, silk Manolo Blahnik heels, she did wear 90 carats of Chopard diamonds and a full Juicy Couture Black Label collaboration, down to the Juicy Couture bedazzled velour opera gloves.
