Why wear your heart on your sleeve when you can wear it on your back?

The fashion goddesses (Rihanna, Kendall Jenner) have spoken, and they have officially declared the furry red YSL cape from Hedi Slimane's fall 2016 collection — his last collection for the brand before stepping down in April of this year — as the must-have piece of the season. 

If you follow the fashion crowd on Instagram, you know that everyone from industry insiders (Eva Chen), editors (Anna Dello Russo), celebrity stylists (Karla Welch), models (Cara Delevingne) and fashion bloggers alike have been caught posing in the cape, which retails for a cool $15,500. (Dello Russo loves her piece so much, she Instagrammed it not once, not twice but — count 'em — 10 times.) 

In the words of Chen, "How could you NOT try this coat on?!" See their looks below.

Rihanna's heart wants what it wants — and it's a Saint Laurent coat.

Not even Kanye West can ask Kendall Jenner why she's gotta be so heartless when she's wearing the cape.

Karla Welch's heart will go on (over a pair of blue jeans).

If home is where the heart is, Eva Chen might just live at the Yves Saint Laurent boutique.

Don't go breaking her heart — it's very expensive.

Cara Delevingne's heart belongs to Saint Laurent — she also appeared in the brand's ads. 

 

  Anna Dello Russo's heart can't get enough of this coat. Seriously.
