Who: Rihanna.

Where: Dior's fall 2015 show in Tokyo on Tuesday.

What: Wearing the hell out of some pointy-toed boots from resort.

Is there any way we could have anticipated how well Dior's decision to sign on Rihanna as its new face would turn out? Yes, quite possibly. But I personally did not, at least not until her hypnotizing "Dior Secret Garden" video came out, and I'm still marveling at how compellingly the two mesh.

The centerpiece of this ensemble is, of course, the shoes. I could write a standalone post dedicated to these shoes, although the bedazzled denim dress and Rihanna's movie star hair and shades demand acknowledgement. With their tight fit around the ankles, contrasting brocades, corset-like lacing up the inner side and exceptionally pointy toes, these boots have the rare capacity to actually surprise and delight.

Now, let's watch that "Secret Garden" video again.
