Jonathan Van Ness Slays on the Red Carpet in Fierce Peep-Toe Boots

“Queer Eye” fans know Jonathan Van Ness loves a good pump.

Van Ness lived up to his reputation at the Creative Arts Emmys in Los Angeles Saturday night — opting for a fierce pair of platforms.

The 32-year-old reality TV star worked the red carpet wearing a Christian Siriano dress with a black bodice and a pastel blue and green train.

Platforms are trending in a big way for fall — thanks not only to Owens but also to other labels such as Givenchy, Gianvito Rossi and Jimmy Choo. The shoes provide a boost with more stability than a stiletto, leading to a feeling of empowerment for the wearer.

JVN was joined on the red carpet by the rest of the “Queer Eye” cast: Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk and Karamo Brown.

Berk and Porowski both wore classic black suits (the former wore Jimmy Choo boots). France was clad in a custom Indian-style ensemble from Varun Bahl Couture, while Brown chose a Versace coat with furry trim and shiny Jimmy Choo shoes.
