The 74th annual Golden Globe Awards are just days away! And, the question on everyone’s mind is not whether La La Land will make a sweep, or whether Viola Davis will finally take home a coveted statuette (it’s her fifth nomination). Nope! Naturally, it’s what will they wear?
And, every year there are A-list celebs who arrive with fanfare only to leave me scratching my head. On the biggest night of the year in Hollywood, I ponder, she chose that?!
But, as bad as some of the worst ensembles are (and there have been some doozies), the stars usually at least get the shoes right. And this year, I predict “barely there” ankle strap heels will rule the Red Carpet.
Although I would like to claim insider knowledge, I am simply taking my cue from the Spring 2017 runway shows. From Bottega Veneta, to Kenzo, to Nina Ricci, ankle strap heels were everywhere.
And, although I will not be attending the Golden Globes, (I watch from my couch) I do have the perfect shoes. The gleaming, golden beauties from Qupid, pictured, are definitely Red Carpet-ready.
The sleek silhouette, barely there single toe strap design, and ankle strap are right on trend. These heels look fabulous with long dresses — and even better with short ones!
Since the 4” heel is a little higher than I normally wear, I admit that they took some getting used to. I still won’t try to navigate steep stairs (no Jennifer Lawrence moments for me), but on even ground they are manageable.
And, the adjustable ankle strap is surprisingly comfortable. If you are not used to ankle straps, they “walk” differently. Again, it takes some time before you stop feeling conspicuous. But, it’s worth it! These shoes give legs a great, long line and work with almost any color or style dress.
And, unlike most evening, event, prom, or wedding shoes, these won’t break the bank. Made of faux leather, and available in a rainbow of colors, they are an incredibly budget-friendly $23 on Amazon.
So, on January 8, I certainly will be watching the Golden Globes for the winners and the fashion. Maybe Viola Davis will nab a golden statuette, but I will be wearing my golden shoes!
