There’s a new footwear rookie in town to take on the big boys, and she’s already proving herself a heavy-hitter. Italian-Romanian-Jordanian designer Amina Muaddi has made the hottest shoe of the summer, and it’s one that’s already caught the attention of everybody from Rihanna to now, well, Kylie Jenner.
In a fit pic from the weekend, Jenner tagged each element of her outfit—but she needn’t have. The bell-bottom heel and crystal embellishment signature to Amina Muaddi was evident a mile off, with the young makeup mogul opting to don a pink satin slingback with a pointed toe that paired perfectly with her fuchsia Balenciaga sunglasses.
The brains behind the brand is Muaddi herself, who burst on the scene in 2018 with her Paris-designed, Italian-produced footwear with one of the greatest diamanté-encrusted contributions to footwear since Carrie Bradshaw’s ill-fated engagement Manolo Blahniks.
And Jenner is far from the first to discover Muaddi. In April, Rihanna stepped out in a floor-length Jacquemus cardigan, denim cut-offs and the envy-inspiring heeled sandals—immediately prompting a Vogue write-up—and then again in June, making the style a must-have among the Instagram set. Certainly an impressive feat for a designer is yet to even spend a year building up her eponymous label.
As far as we’re aware, the latest addition to Muaddi’s offerings is a metallic lime green shoe decorated with rainbow-colored diamonds. If it doesn’t appear on every red carpet this August, each Soho House across every metropolitan center, and many pool parties in the Hollywood Hills, we’ll be very surprised. Revel in their beauty and relish in the fact its still warm enough to wear this dreamy sandal.
