Phoebe Gates brought her striking style to the People’s Choice Awards 2022 in Santa Monica, Calif. on Dec. 6.
With her boyfriend Robert Ross by her side, the daughter of Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, went for a bold all-black ensemble, including show-stopping platform heels.
Gates’ look centered around a Retrofête gown made of a silky black fabric in a criss-crossed halter neck style.
The gown featured a risky angular cutout just below the bodice that further diversified the silhouette, keeping things interesting.
On the accessories front, the eco-friendly fashionista opted for gilded pieces with diamond embellishments from Walters Faith Jewelry that had Gates shining all night long. The Stanford student styled her hair in a slicked back ponytail that was neatly kept in place with a dainty velvet black bow.
As for footwear, the sustainability advocate stepped into a pair of black peep-toe platform heels that streamlined her tonal look.
The style featured chunky soles, black clasps, thick twisted straps, pointed toes and towering block heels reaching at least 6 inches in height.
The platform shoe trend is one of the easiest styles to incorporate into any wardrobe. It is one of the most sought-after shoe styles as a wide selection of brands like Gucci, Burberry and Jimmy Choo have already started to level up their footwear selection. From minimal to colorful, affordable and luxurious, there is a platform sandal for everyone.
