Claire Foy’s 2018 Emmys look may have dazzled many last night, but she left some onlookers wondering about her choice in footwear. The actress made her red carpet appearance wearing a strapless Calvin Klein by Appointment gown, which was paired with the brand’s Camelle sandals in black from its 205W39NYC collection. It seems like a standard ensemble for a high-profile soiree, except for the fact that her diamond-embellished heels were seemingly mismatched.
Make no mistake about it — the shoes are in fact a proper duo, and for $1,495, anyone can opt for the same asymmetrical taste in stilettos. Actually, a little walk down red carpet memory lane reveals that several other actresses have beat Foy to the punch.
As far as Nicole Kidman is concerned, the crystal-encrusted Camelles are so last year. The “Big Little Lies” star donned them in 2017 when she picked up the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie at the 69th Emmys. Considering that Foy took the crown for a TV series of that name in a similar category this year (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series ), perhaps it’s more of a winner’s circle shoe choice than anything else?
But wait, there’s more. Naomie Harris is also a part of the chic Calvin Klein cult and arguably was the first documented inductee. At the 89th annual Academy Awards in February 2017, the “Moonlight” actress took her turn in a canary-yellow colorway. She wore the heels with a sequined gown featuring a floor-length train from Calvin Klein by Appointment.
Selena Gomez is a fan as well; she sported the same pair as Harris when she attended a Lupus Research Alliance event last fall in a sunflower yellow look, including a one-shoulder dress by the brand.
Even young starlets have gotten a piece of the mismatched action. 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown was spotted in a sparkling, silver pair by the designer at the Golden Globe Awards in January. Unlike her actress counterparts, however, the “Stranger Things” lead modeled a more age-appropriate kitten heel on her custom Calvin Kleins (which, at its lower height, retail for $1,390).
