Kaley Cuoco dished out disco glamour ahead of the 2021 Emmy Awards — with two daring shoe choices.
The Emmy-nominated star, who’s returning to the awards circuit for her lead role in HBO’s “The Flight Attendant,” stunned on Instagram in a sparkly yellow minidress by Stella McCartney. The dazzling number featured flared sleeves and a high neckline, bringing Cuoco’s look a distinctly campy ’70s style. Stylist Brad Goreski paired the dress with a matching feathered clutch by Jimmy Choo, as well as Anita Ko stud earrings.
For footwear, Cuoco created a monochrome effect by stepping into a pair of Manolo Blahnik mules. The Gueypla pair, crafted from yellow satin, featured 3.54-inch heels. They also included different straps for style and support: a wide foot strap, and two thinner crossed straps. Cuoco’s shoes retail for $745 on Farfetch.com.
However, the mules weren’t Cuoco’s only kicks of the night. The star also donned a pair of Air Jordan 1 sneakers for a sporty-meets-glam moment. Her sneakers featured white and black leather uppers, punctuated with highlights of yellow and volt. The shoes gave Cuoco’s look a fun twist, while still coordinating from their colorful accents. Her Air Jordan Retro High OG “Volt Gold” colorway is available via resale for as low as $151 on GOAT.com.
When it comes to shoes, Cuoco has a regular rotation of go-to styles. The “Big Bang Theory” actress often wears strappy sandals and pointed-toe pumps by top brands including Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman and Chelsea Paris for events. When off-duty, she can be spotted in sneakers and slides by Nike, Frye and Sorel. She’s notably known for making best-dressed lists throughout awards seasons, due to her looks created with longtime stylist Goreski.
