Pointed-toe pumps and strappy sandals are the go-to footwear choices to pair with red carpet gowns.
But Jenny McCarthy went for a different shoe look — black high-heeled combat boots and matching studded belt — at the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles tonight. The 46-year-old actress paired them with a delicate pale blue Alexander McQueen pre-fall ’19 dress with a strapless neckline and high-low hemline.
While the dress was paired with crystal-covered, ankle-strap sandals in the Alexander McQueen lookbook, McCarthy gave her version a punk feel with a pair of high-heeled, lace-up combat booties with stud detailing.
The “Masked Singer” judge completed her look with a chunky chain necklace. She wore her platinum locks pulled up in a bun.
McCarthy was on her feet for longer than most of the stars, as she hosted the Fox red carpet broadcast. Thus, the Playboy alum may have chosen a block heel over a stiletto for a practical reason — comfort and stability — rather than as a fashion statement.
For the fourth time in Emmys history, this year’s ceremony does not have a host. However, big names are among the presenters, including Zendaya, Viola Davis and Michael Douglas. Departing television programs, notably “Game of Thrones,” were honored throughout the night.
