Update : 05 Mar 2024, 10:07

Trust the Ambani clan to make the impossible happen. After Queen Bey performed at Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal's sangeet ceremony in September 2018, this weekend we saw Rihanna perform at the pre-wedding festivities of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. This is the first time the pop star will be coming to India. The Barbados singer already made headlines with her arrival alongside her partner A$AP Rocky, when her truckloads of luggage for the concert at the event went viral. While on her way out of the airport, we noticed a defining shoe of the season, that Rihanna seems to have championed for her India trip as well.

Before departing from Jamnagar, the singer was spotted sauntering in the exact embellished lambskin ballet flats from Maison Alaïa as was worn by Dakota Johnson in October 2023. The singer paired with a hooded sari drape with a thigh-high slit.

The heels have always reigned supreme when it comes to shoes, however, the recent past has seen the resurgence of the comfy and elegant ballet slippers. Call it the coquette trend, which saw ultra-feminine bows and shoes, or a respite for our aching feet, these flats have become a mainstay in the wardrobes of celebrities like Rihanna and Kourtney Kardashian. In 2023, we saw the Margiela Tabi thief and the Birkenstock sandals with socks taking over the internet, and an increase in sales of the ugly comfortable shoes. Luxury brands including Dior now have released their versions of the mesh ballet flats, driven by style, comfort and design and it seems like they're going to stay around for some time.
