Rihanna Finds The Best Alternative To Heels On Our Best-Dressed List

These shoes are going to be our new go-tos.

We love the idea of heels -- they give us a couple more inches and help create long, lean lines -- but we hate wearing them. They're uncomfortable and a hazard to our heath. So when Rihanna stepped out in an amazing pair of flatform sneakers this week (which gave her a boost sans the pain of stilettos), we were sold. So sold, she topped our best-dressed list.

Check out Riri along with the other stars who inspired us to try new looks this week:

Rihanna: While we love the singer's dress (it screams summer), what we can't get over are her flatform sneakers. They add some height and they look comfortable -- turns out, you can have it all.
Try business on the bottom and party on the top!

Amal Clooney in Versace: Just when we thought we'd seen peak Amal, she gives us this amazing look. The lace dress is all business but her black head wrap is a nod to her fashionable side -- this girl knows how to take a style risk.
A black suit doesn't have to be boring.

Kiernan Shipka in Dior: Even though Shipka is only 16 years old, she has more style than most celebrities we know. We love how she added a slight twist to this classic black suit by adding beaded embellishments on the jacket. BRB, we're about to copy a teenager.
Play around with sheer dresses.

Elle Fanning in Elie Saab: Leave it to Ms. Fanning to make sheer look sophisticated. While this gown does show a lot of skin, the long sleeves and long hemline help to create perfect balance.
Know your event and dress accordingly.

Ella Purnell in Gucci: The English actress is hitting it out of the park with this look. The color-blocking and the wavy line details are perfect for sitting front row at the Gucci Cruise show.
