Gal Gadot brings empowerment to the big screen playing Wonder Woman, but even with her armor left behind, she still makes powerful statements on the red carpet.
While on a press and promo tour, Gadot has eschewed traditional stiletto fare to embrace comfortable flats. In fact, at the movie’s Los Angeles screening, she teamed a Givenchy dress with thong sandals by Aldo. It was a moment long in the making.
“That’s something I’ve been saying for years, that I want to create this trend of doing red carpets in flats,” Gadot told USA Today. “I love wearing high heels — it’s beautiful, it’s sexy, whatever. But at the same time, especially stilettos, it puts us out of balance. We can fall any minute. It’s not good for our backs. Why do we do it? I can wear high heels (despite having a sprained back). But I was like, ‘Let’s wear flats.’ I’ve been waiting for this moment.”
Gadot teamed the sparkling luxury label’s dress with a bargain pair of Aldo’s Starda flats. The sandals feature goldtone hardware embellishments and retail for $50 on aldo.com.
Throughout the “Wonder Woman” press tour, Gadot has been saving her feet and body from agony in other chic styles.
On Wednesday at a fan screening in New York, Gadot teamed strappy black sandal flats with a black-and-white mini dress. For a premiere in Mexico City, she complemented her floor-length black gown with matching flat thong platforms.
Christian Louboutin’s sleek flats were her choice of footwear on May 23 — wearing the Cagouflat peep-toe style with a cobalt blue ribbed dress on “Good Morning America,” and at AOL Live she teamed a pink dress with Pigalle pointed-toe flats. Gadot made another outfit change to appear on “Good Day NY,” opting for a maxi dress complemented with Tod’s slip-on sneakers that featured a raffia outsole.
