Rihanna was photographed today messing around with her best friend, Melissa Forde, on their way into the car. I’m assuming she was heading to a photo shoot because she’s been posting shots on Instagram apparently out of boredom.

For Mimi, when it’s holiday time, she goes to Aspen and defies our expectations about what snowsuits are supposed to look like…and how tight they can get. Also walking on ice in heels. Or, rather, in heels, but carried by bodyguards. These are the Mimi holiday traditions.

And what does a Rihanna holiday tradition look like?

You remember last year she was posting pictures of all her gift bags? Shoes, bags, clothes from Stella McCartney, Balmain, Balenciaga, Versace, McQueen, I can’t remember it all but it was a lot. And that’s part of what made it such a bummer when she quit Instagram. Rihanna knows what she’s doing on social. It’s just as boasty as Beyonce, but with so much more personality. And, therefore, that much more interesting.

This is what the Rihanna holiday tradition has given us so far – shoe porn from Dsquared:
