In 1998, she attended Diddy’s birthday party at Hotel Cipriani in New York wearing a red dress and a shoe trend that has been revitalized recently: square-toed shoes.

Her sandals featured double straps and a block heel.

A few years later, she attended Diddy’s birthday party again, but this time, she stepped up the eccentricity of her ensemble.

She chose a green princess-style gown complete with a full tulle skirt and train as well as a matching tiara.

For footwear, she had on chunky black peep-toe platforms with a block heel.
