Rihanna walks over a grate in stilettos - makes us believe in miracles


With her unique sound, bad-girl attitude and erratic apparel choices, Rihanna has become a true music and fashion icon. Still on her ANTI World Tour, the singer recently stepped out in Paris clad in a baby blue frock and a pair of strappy, 9 inch (or maybe even 11 inch?) heels. This was proof enough that you'll never, ever catch Riri falling.

As she smiled and waved to swarming paparazzi, she gracefully glided over a grate scattered with hundreds of holes, just about the exact size and shape of her stick-thin heels.

Her community of devout social media followers reacted with awe, with some even questioning her human makeup. Is she even for real?

It is of course, not the first time that the 28-year-old songstress has been captured braving risky fashion items ordinary folk would rather avoid. Who can forget her 2014 CFDA Awards naked dress? And in April last year, was the first time she opted to walk over a grate in heels, this time near the New York subway. It seems as though Rihanna shows no sign of putting a stop to her audacious antics.

Kate Middleton has also made headlines in the past for being bold enough to take to the hockey field donning Alexander McQueen boots. Sacrilege. While Khloe Kardashian has enjoyed a game of bowling in Louboutins and, of course, not to mention Lady Gaga’s Armadillo boots which are completely in a league of its own!

Do celebs have super human abilities when it comes to walking in heels? Must be.
