When in doubt, go strappy. Celebs have been embracing this footwear message both on and off the red carpet, favoring strappy sandals for their leg-lengthening silhouette. Statement styles from Dsquared2 (which Footwear News profiled here) have been especially popular on celebs such as Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora.
This summer, both Ora and Cara Delevingne have been spotted in the Italian brand’s resort ’17 looks. The lace-up style comes in both an ankle and thigh-high silhouette, and it’s finished with yellow lacing.
Rihanna has been spotted in Dsquared2’s pastel blue lace-up stilettos on multiple occasions. She styled it with a Rosie Assoulin dress or a perforated Balmain dress. This week, she wore the same pair in black.
She’s also proven her talent for walking over subway grates in heels while wearing them. (Seriously, how does she do it?)
Meanwhile, Jenner wore Dsquared’2 ultra strappy thigh-highs to the 2016 MTV Movie Awards — a look that was the buzziest of the night. She even posted an Instagram beforehand showing her team lacing them up, captioning the photo “team work.”
Her sister Kylie Jenner wore a burgundy lace-up pair on Tuesday in New York, paired with a formfitting Murmur Clothing bodysuit and Zaid Affas skirt and jacket.
