Rihanna may be the coolest girl on the planet, but she knows no one can touch Jennifer Lopez’s fabulosity. Last month, Rih gifted JLo a pair of her denim thigh-high boots from her collaboration with Manolo Blahnik because Lopez will “wear them better” than she can. Well, Lopez just wore the designer denim chaps in her new music video, “Ain’t Your Mama.” And the results were so sexy, Rihanna may actually be right!

In April, Rihanna sent over a pair of boots from her “Denim Desserts” collaboration with famed shoe designer Manolo Blahnik to Lopez, along with a handwritten note reading, “To The Baddest, Because I know you’re gonna wear them better than me!!! From: badgalriri”

And naturally, Lopez chose an epic moment to rock their Fashion Faceoff — dancing in them in her newly-released music video, “Ain’t Your Mama.” At the big choreographed dance sequence at the end of the video, she wears a skin-tight white long-sleeve bodysuit to fully show off the thigh-high denim boots that connect at the waist with an oversize belt buckle (to create a chaps-like style).

Rihanna debuted her boots inside the pages of Vogue UK worn with high-waisted underwear and a brocade coat (sans shirt underneath). Then, she styled them IRL with short-shorts so teeny they could double as underwear, with a graphic-print shirt of Princess Diana and oversize leather jacket.
