Fashion Icon Cher Tweeted Out Love for Fashion Icon Rihanna’s Sneakers

Someone get her a pair, ASAP.

Just two queens, hanging out on social media, and giving each other the footwear-based love they both deserve.

Cher — who, if you don’t have the pleasure of following yet on social media, has an incredibly eccentric and enthusiastic presence — took to Twitter this afternoon to declare her affection for a pair of sneakers Rihanna designed for her massively popular Fenty Puma line.

The kicks in question hail from the fall/winter 2017 collection, and are sort of a moonboot mashup of the line’s popular creeper model complete with an ankle strap. “The latest from the AW17 #FENTYxPUMA collection is out now,” Rih tweeted before Cher quickly responded with a screenshot of her favorite: “Hey little @rihanna girl, So ?❄️ = cool.” Not even an hour later, Rih came back with another tweet of her own: “A true queen you are @Cher … thank you!” So, when’s a collaboration happening? A song? A fashion line? Whatever is more convenient.

Alas, Cher wasn’t done with her Rih shout-outs. In addition to her initial tweet, she also retweeted an account that shared a photo emblazoned with the following typeface: “Real queens fix each other’s crowns.” It takes one queen to know another, after all.

If you’ve been keeping up with Cher’s Twitter from day one, you’d know that the Rihanna love isn’t a new concept. She’s previously been vocal about admiring her “gorgeous” looks and “major talent”, as well as thrown a few emojis into the equation. More of this pair, please!

Cher’s Style: From Sonny to Marc

In the early ‘60s, Cher and her husband and musical partner Sonny Bono were instant hits, and their fashion sense reflected their success. Here in 1967, the singer shows off her long black hair and signature bangs in a loose-fitting lace dress, accessorized by chunky rings and bare feet.

In this now-iconic 1974 photo, Cher steals the show at an L.A. event with a wide felt hat and purple eye shadow, nails, and lips.

Having grown out her iconic bangs, Cher takes to a 1975 party at L.A.’s Greenhouse in a beaded halter-top, loose wide-leg pants, and long metallic nails.

Marc Jacobs is not Cher’s first designer romance. Beginning in 1967, Bob Mackie created some of the performer’s most memorable looks (including a sheer dress at the 1974 Met Gala that Kim Kardashian cited as inspiration this year). Here, the singer and actress shows off one of his metallic designs in a 1978 photo shoot.

Even Cher’s off-duty styles—like this glitzy jean-and-t-shirt combo in 1987—deserve applause.

The singer ups the ante for her 1999-2000 “Do You Believe?” tour, which coincided with her 22nd album, “Believe.”

Though longtime collaborator Mackie was unable to design the costumes for the first leg of Cher’s 2014 “Dressed to Kill” tour, that didn’t stop the star from going over the top. Working with designer Hugh Durrant, the star created 14 looks, including this beaded jumpsuit, moto jacket, and oversized hair ensemble.

Just as he did with Jessica Lange in 2014, Marc Jacobs courts his soon-to-be-campaign star at the 2015 Met Gala. And the rest, as they say, is history.
