Constance Wu spoke onstage at HBO Max’s “Velma” panel during the New York Comic Con event on Oct. 6. The actress has recently been cast to play Daphne in the upcoming series. 

The “Crazy Rich Asians” star took to the stage in vest over t-shirt style. Wu wore a white cropped t-shirt layered with an unbuttoned black vest. She kept her style casual chic with a pair of high-waisted tailored trousers, which she tucked into her footwear.

The “Lyle Lyle Crocodile” actress added a fisherman cap to her outfit. She accessorized with gold jewelry including a chain link necklace, chunky hoop earrings, and rings. For glam, Wu went with red lips. The actress wore her hair straight and down with her bangs peeking through below her cap. 

Although the actress is often seen in high stiletto platforms, she showed more of her streetwear style with a pair of chunky black combat boots at the event. The laced-up Dr. Martens are made of smooth black leather and a contrasting brown interior with 3 to 4-inch heels. Combat boots were originally designed to be worn by soldiers, but the utilitarian footwear was later adopted by the goth, punk, grunge, and heavy metal scenes.
