Kathryn Newton put on the glitz for San Diego Comic-Con 2022, arriving for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Mega-Panel with cast members Peyton Reed, Evangeline Lilly, Paul Rudd and Jonathan Majors for their 2023 film “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
Newton stepped out at the San Diego Convention Center for the occasion in a sparkling silver Prada outfit. Her ensemble featured a pleated crystal mesh miniskirt with sheer paneling, as well as a matching bralette layered over a white collared button-up crop top. The glam-meets-academic outfit was complete with a silver ring and black leather belt accent.
When it came to shoes, the “Big Little Lies” actress‘ look was complete with a pair of Prada’s satin platform sandals with crystal detail. Her black set featured thin ankle straps and thick platform soles — plus thick toe straps with 3D appliqués of Prada’s signature triangle logo. Giving the pair added drama were allover silver crystals, as well as towering 5-inch block heels — lending the set a glamorous appearance for head-to-toe sparkle.
Platform sandals like Newton’s have soared in popularity from their height-boosting heels and secure platform soles — as well as added balance from upper straps. Pairs with stiletto and block heels have grown in popularity as well, as seen in new styles by Aquazzura, Loeffler Randall and Schutz. Aside from Newton, stars including Selena Gomez, Lupita Nyong’o and Kate Beckinsale have strapped into Larroudé, Stuart Weitzman and Sophia Webster platforms in recent weeks as well.
