Is Rihanna Wearing $837 Knee Socks?! We Investigate

Yes, Rihanna lives a very luxe lifestyle, but she still manages to shock us with her crazy style splurges. And we think she might have just broken her own personal spending record with a pair of knee socks — you read that right, knee socks — we spotted on her Instagram.

RiRi loves a good Insta photoshoot, and in one of her latest she’s sporting thigh-high black-and-white polka dot socks that look exactly like this Azzedine Alaïa pair. Knowing the singer’s relationship with designers — and love for anything high-fashion — we thinks it’s a pretty safe bet that they are, in fact, Alaïa. She styled the footwear with some gray high-waisted bloomers (naturally) and a baseball tee.

But we shouldn’t be surprised: This is the same girl who rocked this Swarovski-encrusted bikini, which cost nearly a grand. Plus, maybe they were a birthday gift. Regardless, leave it up to Rihanna to have the most expensive sock collection on the planet.

What do you think of the singer’s socks? Do you like her style? Share your thoughts below.

But why take pictures like that to send out to the world? Oh wait, you want us to tell you how great you look. And for every man out there to want you, but can’t have you. I get it.

She is not bankrupt. There was an article stated that EARLIER in her career, there was a mismanagement of her money by someone who was supposed to be overseeing it.

That’s why this S*ank filed for bankruptcy

She didn’t pay for them, the company gave them to her so she could get into articles like this.
