Thompson has quite the history of wearing sneakers to occasions like red carpet events and visiting Buckingham Palace. In November 2018, the “Love Actually” actress caused a commotion when she showed up at Buckingham Palace wearing a blue double-breasted pantsuit and white Stella McCartney Adidas Stan Smith vegan sneakers. Thompson was baffled by the controversy, having stated on the “My Dad Wrote a Porno” podcast that “they were posh trainers”.
