Chris Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend was spotted wearing an outfit identical to Rihanna’s. Just like RiRi, Karrueche paired knee-high Tom Ford boots, (one of Rihanna’s signature wardrobe staples!), with an oversized cream, two slit top and black booty shorts. Is she purposely trying to dress like Chris’ famous ex-girlfriend?
Karrueche Tran, 26, has been in the limelight recently for her very public, (and quite rocky), relationship with singer Chris Brown — yet who could forget about the rumors of a love triangle involving the pair and his famous ex, Rihanna? Even if you forgot about Rihanna’s link to the aspiring model, you were instantly reminded of their connection when Kae stepped out in a look that seemed like it came right out of RiRi’s closet!
Karrueche Tran Copies Rihanna’s Fashion In Tom Ford Boots:
If Karrueche doesn’t want to be compared to the stylish, edgy songstress, she should think twice before showing off one of Rihanna’s favorite footwear trends: statement, over-the-knee Tom Ford boots. Kae was spotted on July 8 wearing a cream, two slit top, black booty shorts, and lacy black thigh high Tom Ford boots — an outfit debuted by Rihanna practically a year ago! Who do you think wore the edgy ensemble better? More importantly, which look do you think Chris would pick?
Rihanna, 25, has always been known for her bold fashion statements and risky style. On June 16, 2013, the singer debuted a unique, Rihanna-esque look while heading for a night out at London’s Cuckoo Club. Rihanna’s edgy ensemble featured a cream, chiffon double side slit dress with black high-waisted shorts and printed, over-the-knee peep-toe Tom Ford boots. She accessorized with Chanel cuffs for a sexy, head-turning look.
A year later, Karrueche was spotted in an identical outfit from head-to-toe that makes us wonder if she did, in fact, draw her inspiration from Chris’ ex. For her appearance on the Keke Palmer Show, Karreuche wore a Topshop cream short sleeved top that features two side slits, Gucci black high-waisted shorts, and Tom Ford‘s Spring 2014 leather lace-up high boots. She accessorized with gold jewelry from Jennifer Fisher and styled her tresses in loose waves.
Who Wore Tom Ford Boots Better?
Regardless of whether or not Karrueche intentionally copied Rihanna, the similarity is uncanny — especially because they both opted to wear Tom Ford knee-high boots. Granted, the boots themselves are a little different: Rihanna’s feature a black and white patterned print, while Karrueche’s boots are completely made out of black lacing. Still, we’re curious to hear your take on this odd coincidence. Do you think Karrueche styled herself after Rihanna? Ultimately, who wore Tom Ford better? Let us know by commenting and voting below.
