Katharine McPhee mixed logos with easygoing separates at the 2022 Imagine Ball.
While arriving at West Hollywood’s Peppermint Club on Sunday night with husband David Foster, the Style Award-winning musician posed in a black knit crop top and midi skirt. Her satin Fendi skirt was covered in the brand’s “FF” monogram, punctuated by a bright orange clutch with a beaded top handle. Her outfit was complete with two thin bangles and tubular huggie earrings in mixed gold and silver metals. She also paired her ensemble with a $2,650 leather choker from Chanel’s Fall 2022 collection, which featured a row of gold and imitation pearl medallions accented with clovers, camellias and the brand’s double-C logo.
When it came to shoes, McPhee continued her outfit’s all-black trajectory with a pair of heeled sandals by Steve Madden. Her $90 Kendall style featured squared toes and thin platform soles, topped by curved upper straps crafted from black satin. Looping ankle-wrap and slingback straps gave the pair a secure finish, completed by 5-inch flared heels for a bold height boost.
McPhee’s ensemble presented a different take on monochrome dressing, using different brand monograms and a pop of color to create a pseudo-eclectic ensemble that was still streamlined through its singular dark hue. Her footwear also mixed several top fall shoe trends in one silhouette: platform soles, squared toes and ankle-wrapped straps. Tony Bianco, Tory Burch and Alohas have also tapped multi-trend silhouettes within their new fall footwear as well, cementing its place as a new design technique.
The Imagine Ball is an annual event held to benefit Imagine LA, a nonprofit working towards ending family poverty and homelessness. The 2022 occasion at West Hollywood’s Peppermint Club notably honored Earvin “Magic” Johnson with the Rise Together Award, and featured a musical performance by David Foster. Equally star-studded were the event’s attendees, which included Ciara, Katharine McPhee and Pia Toscano.
