Bill Gates’ Daughter Phoebe Gates Pops in a Purple Cutout Dress & Platform Sandals at Kendall Jenner’s Jean Paul Gaultier & FWRD Cocktail Party

Phoebe Gates attended a cocktail party yesterday in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of Jean Paul Gaultier with Los Angeles-based luxury retailer, FWRD. The daughter of Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates went for a bold pop of color in purple, making for a mostly monochrome statement save for her shoes.

The 20-year-old’s outfit consisted of a long-sleeve ribbed turtleneck dress featuring sporadic cutouts under the bodice and on the hips that created a dynamic silhouette. The futuristic style was paired alongside a bright purple Balenciaga Cagole bag adorned with silver studs that gave her ensemble some edge. The pairing made a perfect match thanks to the purple hues. Gates wore her dark hair slicked back.

Gates’ ensemble was streamlined with a set of sleek platform sandals. Her style featured black uppers with wide ankles and twisted crossed peep toe straps, as well as thick platform soles. Block heels totaling 3-4-inches in height finished the set, giving her a moderate height boost with a walkable base.

Gates has become an emerging ace in the fashion world, particularly while attending Fashion Month shows this season for Aje, Alice + Olivia, Michael Kors and Valentino. Gates, who is an advocate for sustainability in fashion, often wears stiletto-heeled or platform sandals in neutral tones for more formal occasions, hailing from top brands including Christian Louboutin. When off-duty, Gates has also been spotted in low-top Louis Vuitton and Golden Goose sneakers, as well.
