For footwear, the Rhode Island native opted for show-stopping sandals: thigh-high gladiators from Monika Chiang. The over-the-knee, lace-up sandals are made of buttery soft leather, with a 4.3-inch stiletto heel and silver end pieces adding a luxe finish. While getting the shoes on is no small feat, it’s a little easier than it might appear at first glance, as there’s a silver zipper hidden along the back. The sandals retail for $895 on the designer’s website.

“Casual ‼️‼️,” Culpo captioned her Instagram post, which racked up more than 150,000 likes.

The 2012 Miss Universe is not the only celebrity to test out thigh-high strappy sandals. Dsquared2’s Riri style, named after singer-turned-fashion-mogul Rihanna, found favor not only with the Fenty designer but also with Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin.

As for Culpo’s style, she tends to opt for soaring heels, often with a statement-making twist like yesterday’s pair. The model is a fan of top designer labels such as Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin.
