Ariana Grande Kicks Off World Tour in the Craziest 7-Inch Heeled Thigh-High Boots

Ariana Grande kicked off her “Sweetener” world tour in Albany, N.Y., Monday night, performing in a range of platform boots — a trend we saw all over the runway for fall ’19 at Paris Fashion Week in early March.

The 25-year-old pop star hit the stage in various custom shoe designs from the likes of Giuseppe Zanotti and L.A. streetwear brand Unravel. For one song, she donned a vibrant orange look complete with a ruched tangerine miniskirt and baggy platform stiletto thigh-high boots by the latter.

For her performance of “Thank U, Next,” the hitmaker showed off a plaid miniskirt and matching over-the-knee platform stiletto boots. The colorful ensemble screamed Cher Horowitz from “Clueless.”
