Rihanna's the queen of endorsements. Fly ones, too.
She's on the cover of April British Vogue, and inside she spills the beans on her new six-shoe endorsement campaign with the legendary high-end shoe company Manolo Blahnik.
In the issue, she models in one of the shoes from her collection: thigh-high boots with crystals aligned at the very top. She also talks about how she's super amped to see ladies strutting around in the collection, which is called Denim Dessert.
"The day I see a woman in the street wearing my shoes … I am sorry for that woman because I'm going to literally run after her, shouting, 'Stop! Selfie! Who are you? Where did you get them?' I'm going to have a moment!" she says.
She credits her mom for her sense of fashion.
"Oh my goodness, my mother—she is a woman's woman," Rihanna says. "I was obsessed with everything she did then, everything she wore, her scent, her shoes and her scarves … that was the glamour I wanted to be part of."
