Aubrey Plaza Sharpens Up in Thom Browne Suit & Patent Pumps at ‘CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute’ Event

Aubrey Plaza brought sharp suiting to this year’s “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” event.

While arriving at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on Sunday night, Plaza posed in a sharp Thom Browne ensemble. The “White Lotus” star’s outfit featured a short black wool bouclé blazer with pointed lapels, lifted sleeves and a white pocket accent, layered atop a cropped white button-up shirt. A matching ribbed knit miniskirt over black tights completed the set, accessorized with layered gold rings and stud earrings.

A shiny black leather clutch with a rectangular trunk silhouette featuring a small top handle and gold hardware gave Plaza’s outfit a business-worthy finish.

When it came to shoes, Plaza also opted for a set of low-heeled pumps — also from Browne. The “Parks & Recreation” actress‘ footwear of choice featured black patent leather uppers in a round-toed silhouette, accented by thick front toe straps trimmed with the designer’s signature red, white and blue stripes. A set of 2 to 3-inch block heels completed the pair, giving Plaza an easygoing, stable height boost throughout the evening.
