5 Days of Shoes: Uma Thurman's Sophisticated Kitten Heels
Plus, Victoria Beckham stepped out in her usual sky-high stilettos
Uma Thurman garnered multiple accolades this week for her turn on the red carpet on Monday. Proving that, as always, she is a style icon to be reckoned with. She paired a mid-length Jenny Packham gown with sweet black cross-strap Jimmy Choo kitten heels. It created a decidedly feminine and very beguiling effect, and a harking back to a 1960s New Look silhouette. Can you say meow?
Prepping for New York Fashion Week, the designer arrived at JFK airport Wednesday in dagger-thin black pointy-toe five-inch stilettos, bringing the sexy back to the basic black pump with a short mini. She was spotted styling the same pair of shoes the week before with a cropped square sweater and masculine pants. We think it's safe to say that Beckham has an eye for what’s next, so consider our next investment this fall to be a pair of sexy black pumps.
Model-actress Cara Delevingne caused her usual stir by arriving at the British GQ Men of the Year Awards in a see-through black lace Burberry getup, complemented by well-worn Tabitha Simmons “Eva” black suede peep-toe silver-buckled bootie stilettos with stitch and zipper detailing. Delevingne wore the shoe so well that even Simmons took to Instagram to say the boot was officially named after the model and said she looked "amazing as always." Later that night, the model was seen falling (or hugging designer Jonathan Saunders, according to her Instagram). Could it have been the shoes? Possibly.
The ever-iconic film editor Thelma Schoonmaker, who is a longtime Martin Sorsese collaborator, stepped out with elegance on Tuesday to receive her Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival. The three-time Oscar winner paired a satin boatneck top and black pants with a chunky kitten heel, featuring a high toebox. Talk about a way to accept an award with sophistication and style.
Frances McDormand also embraced pants at the Venice Film Festival on Tuesday, donning an all-black jumpsuit with gentle tapering at the ankle. Though her outfit may have leaned toward the serious side, her black and mirror metallic T-bar chunky-heeled sandals offered just the right amount of bling to jazz up her red-carpet look.
