DUBAI: Beauty mogul and superstar singer Rihanna was spotted wearing footwear by Jordanian-Romanian designer Amina Muaddi in Los Angeles over the weekend, becoming the latest in a glittering lineup of celebrities to flaunt her designs.
Rihanna sat courtside at a basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center on Oct. 25 and showed off a casual all-white ensemble accessorized with layered necklaces, chunky hoop earrings and sandals by Amina Muaddi.
One of Rihanna’s necklaces featured the ankh symbol, used in ancient Egypt as a symbol of life. The Amina Muaddi shoes, dubbed the Gilda heels, boasted two diamante-studded straps.
“Rih in her Gilda sandals at the Lakers game. A whole weekend mood (sic),” the fashion house posted on Instagram.
Muaddi is fast becoming a celebrity favorite and Rihanna isn’t the only musician to have been spotted sporting a pair of her heels. Former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland was spotted at the opening of director Tyler Perry’s new studio in Atlanta in October wearing a slinky pair of sling backs by the designer. A day later, she hit the red carpet in a dark-green ensemble with sparkling heels by Muaddi, which she wore with a jade green mini dress by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran. Rowland even took to social media to gush over her latest pair of Amina Muaddi heels, posting an Instagram Story in which she waxes lyrical about her “fly” new shoes.
Muaddi has been in the spotlight as of late, with the likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Rihanna and British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showing off her heels in recent months.
Kylie boasted a pair of the “Lupita” glass slippers at the launch of her new skincare line, Kylie Skin, at the end of May, while her older sister Kendall finished off a skin-tight minidress with the Gilda rainbow sandals while in Cannes in May.
Back in April, Rihanna — who is clearly a fan of the part-Jordanian footwear maven — was spotted in New York wearing a black coat with strappy white sandals by Muaddi while reportedly out and about with her Saudi beau Hassan Jameel.
Meanwhile, Huntington-Whiteley has been an avid fan for quite some time and regularly takes to Instagram to show off Muaddi’s latest designs.
Muaddi’s footwear label is designed in Paris and produced in Italy.
