After teasing fans with behind-the-scenes footage and fashion shots from the filming of her new video for her single "Where Have You Been," Rihanna dropped the new video yesterday on her facebook page. The single is already getting major play time on L.A.'s top radio stations and, as always, Rihanna shows off her edgy, sexy style. ShoesTV has the scoop on the sexy shoes that ShoesTV discovered from a first-time designer at TRANSIT LA Shoe Show that made it into the video.
Rihanna posted behind-the-scenes footage from "Where Have You Been" to show off the dance routines and choreography she is working on with her crew. Rihanna is laid back and makeup free in the footage.

Although Rihanna gave her fans a great behind-the-scenes look at her video, it wasn't until it dropped yesterday that everyone could appreciate the entire artistic vision of the video. One very cool surprise that ShoesTV found came in the form the Coin "Bling" Sandal by Aminah Abdul Jillil that the girls are wearing in the video. We discovered first-time designer Jillil at the TRANSIT LA Shoe Show earlier this year and fell in love with her, and her designs. Jillil was a backup dancer for Britney Spears and traveled the world on tour. Her travels opened her eyes to fashion, culture and art and helped inspire her shoe collection. Her designs have a little edge to them, just enough to make them stand out from typical designs--and earn a place in a Rihanna video.

Aminah Abdul Jillil's Coin "Bling" Sandal retails for $265 and features leather lining with a leather sole, a toe strap and an adjustable ankle strap. Pick up an element of Rihanna's style to rock out in this summer.
