Aspiring model Hailey Baldwin stepped out in New York City on Tuesday for the Footwear News Awards. The host of “Drop the Mic” looked stunning in an asymmetrical sky blue look that showed off her legs. All of the flashbulbs in the world, however, couldn’t distract the world from wondering how she was named “Style Influencer of the Year.”

The 30th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, considered to be the “Oscars of Shoes,” were held Tuesday night. Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Creepers snagged the award for “Shoe of the Year.” The singer accepted the honor and explained how the win makes her proud to be a woman as well as a “young woman from Barbados, especially.”
“I didn’t expect people to love it the way I do, and the way they’ve supported it means so much to me,” she continued. Rihanna then dedicated the award to “all the Creeper fans and all the kids in the street that inspire me just by doing things their own way.”
Zendaya also appeared at the event where she posed for pictures with designer Michael Kors. The 30th annual FNAAs also recognized Daya by Zendaya as “Launch of the Year.”

Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach recently chatted with Footwear News about the strategy he relies on to keep the multi-hyphenate entertainer looking her best. He talked about their collaborative process and even mentioned what pair of shoes resulted in Zendaya having to be carried off of the red carpet at last year’s Radio Disney Music Awards.
