rihanna-2016-fnaas-5

Rihanna made history on Tuesday night (Nov. 29), becoming the first-ever woman to win “Shoe of the Year” at the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards. Hosted at IAC Headquarters in New York City last night, the pop superstar 30th FNAAs to accept her award for the Fenty Puma Creeper. The 28-year-old arrived on the red carpet wearing a black and white pair of Creepers, a long skirt, black baseball cap and shining jewelry from Chopard’s “High Jewelry Collection.”

This is such a big deal for me,” said Rihanna during her acceptance speech. “It makes me so proud to be a woman, to be a young woman from Barbados, especially. To come to America and just do this by default just because I liked to wear a certain style of shoe.” She later continued, “I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do, and the way they’ve supported it means so much to me. All the Creeper fans and all the kids in the street who inspire me by doing things their own way.”

The FENTYxPUMA Creeper signifies a successful partnership between Rihanna and PUMA which first started in 2015, selling out in record time worldwide. Known as the “Shoe Oscars,” Rihanna’s win at the FN Achievement Awards comes one year after Kanye West won “Shoe of the Year” for his Yeezy Boost collaboration with adidas.

Barack Obama has just a few weeks left in office, but he’s absolutely, 100 percent going out as the coolest President of all time (in case that wasn’t already clear). Last night, Obama hosted his final White House state dinner in honor of Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, but there were two unlikely names on the guest list: Frank Ocean and Chance The Rapper. Both guys arrived looking suited and booted as they brought along their parents, Katonya Breaux and Ken Bennett (who, of course, used to work for Obama). Frank even rocked a pair of checkered Vans.

The day after Gucci Mane clipped off his house arrest anklet, he and wifey Keyshia Ka’oir flew to New York City. While there, he not only made stops at Vogue, GQ , and XXL, but he also was spotted shopping at VFiles, KITH, and the home team, Stadium Goods.

A$AP Rocky always seems to have a few surprise up his Dior sleeve. Last year’s At.Long.Last.A$AP album featured collaborations with Rod Stewart, M.I.A. and a little known English singer named Joe Fox. And for his upcoming third LP, it looks like Pretty Flacko is cooking up with another interesting cast of characters.

The Harlem rapper was recently pictured in the studio with producer Jim Jonsin (the guy behind “L$D,” as well as Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop” and Wiz Khalifa’s “On My Level”) and Lenny Kravitz, who needs no introduction. “@asaprocky album #3 Thankful for the great @lennykravitz stopping by… Stay Tuned,” Jonsin wrote on Instagram.
