Platform shoes are back in a big way for fall ’19 — and lots of A-listers already got a start on the trend.
The trend is wide-reaching, and stars have tested out all sorts of platforms — from boots to sandals to pumps. The ultra-tall shoes have appeared on both streets and the red carpet.
Britney Spears gave the trend a go for her first red carpet of the year, the Los Angeles premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” in July. The pop star wore a red frock by Nookie with strappy black platform sandals.
Lena Dunhan opted for similar black platform sandals on the red carpet at the London premiere of the same film. The “Girls” star teamed her Jimmy Choo heels with a feathered, sequined gown by 16Arlington.
Ava Max tried platforms with sky-high, Lady Gaga-esque proportions for an August appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel.” Max teamed her soaring silver boots with a shiny blue jacket and a Saint Laurent handbag.
Another more inventive take on the platform came courtesy of Tessa Thompson. The actress opted for brogues with the extra height at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in L.A. this June. She paired the menswear-inspired shoes with a silver Thom Browne blazer dress.
