Bella Thorne brought her bold style to the premiere of “Time Is Up” at the Auditorium Conciliazione in Rome.

For the occasion, the “Shake It Up” actress hit the red carpet with fiancée Benjamin Mascolo in a sleek black Versace gown. The slim-fitting number featured a long sleeves and a deep neckline, as well as various angular silk panels. Its boldest feature was a daring thigh-high slit, often seen as a statement-making red carpet move; similar looks have been worn by Angelina Jolie, Bella Hadid and Rita Ora over the years. Thorne’s dress was accented with a gold Versace safety pin charm, and she accessorized with a variety of rings and gold drop earrings.

The Safety Pin style featured sharp pointed toes and a slingback strap accented with gold hardware and Versace’s signature safety pins. They also included stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height. Thorne’s pumps retail for $950 on Versace.com.

Pointed-toe pumps have become one of this year’s most popular styles, now that live events and a desire for glamorous dressing have returned. The shoe gives most looks a sharper appearance, thanks to its thin heels and triangular toes. In addition to Thorne, stars including Zendaya, Sarah Paulson and Sarah Jessica Parker have worn similar pumps from Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and more top brands in recent weeks.

For footwear, the “Midnight Sun” actress favors pointed-toe pumps and sandals from labels like Aquazzura, Le Silla and Saint Laurent. When off-duty, the star is a fan of chunky sneakers and boots from DKNY, Balenciaga and Prada. Thorne is also an avid collector of Chanel shoes, handbags and jewelry, frequently wearing sandals, slides and sneakers from her own archive of the French luxury label.

Outside of shoes, Thorne has often dipped her toes into the fashion world. The “Assassination Nation” star has collaborated with F3tish and Drihp, and previously launched casual clothing line Filthy Fangs with her sister, Dani. She’s also been an ambassador and campaign star for brands Candie’s, Miss Me, Buxom and Biore over the years.
