Jenna Dewan is all smiles at 2021 amfAR Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

She wore towering platform sandals with an ankle strap courtesy of Giuseppe Zanotti along with dainty jewels by Anita Ko to complete the stunning look.

Last month, Dewan brought the peek-a-boo trend to the premiere of “L.O.L Surprise!” in a slightly more casual way. Arriving at the event in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, the “Step Up” actress went glam in a checkered print jumpsuit; the silhouette included puffed sleeves and a dual flashes of skin on her torso.

Amongst a revitalization of 1990s and early 2000s fashion aesthetics, cutout designs as well are making a triumphant return to the celebrity style scene this season from Cult Gaia’s own beloved twisted dress to Monôt’s peek-a-boo designs. Stars like Saweetie, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Katie Holmes have all been seen in similar styles as of late.

When it comes to Jenna Dewan’s style, the “Step Up” actress loves a solid casual footwear style like Nike and New Balance sneakers, Ancient Greek Sandals silhouettes and Rothy’s ballet flats. The actress also knows how to switch it up for various red carpet outings — think Tibi gowns, Stuart Weitzman stilettos, Self-Portrait minidresses and Malone Souliers sandals. Over the years, she has also starred in multiple campaigns from Danskin.
