With new hairstyles nearly every week and rarely a wardrobe repeat, Rihanna is a master at changing up her look. One thing that she does swear by, though, is ultra-sexy tall boots. Arguably the hottest and the most impractical shoe in the footwear kingdom, she wears them everywhere—on stage, to meetings and just to strut around New York City. Recently, she modeled a strappy off-white style and on Instagram, declared her love for a new pair by Prada. “Gotcha bitch tip toeing on my marble flo’!!! Sick ass custom Prada boots! Miuccia you RULE!!! Thank you,” she wrote of the pic, where she’s butt-naked save for a few pieces of leather and a thong.

The boots conjure up a particular nineties film heroine, Pretty Woman‘s Vivian Ward, the Hollywood prostitute played memorably by Julia Roberts. Ward, for anyone who’s seen the flick (that’s everyone, right?) catches Richard Gere’s Edward Lewis’ eye with a thigh-skimming pair of black boots, a cutout bodycon dress (also back in vogue) and a blonde bobbed wig. And although Roberts could really rocked that look, Rihanna’s made it her signature. Here are seven recent shots of the star looking every inch the sexpot in all sorts of over-the-knee styles.
