Tia Mowry took a preppy piece to new heights at Elle’s 29th annual Women in Hollywood event on Monday night. The “Sister, Sister” star was all smiles while posing for photos on the black carpet at The Getty Center in Los Angeles.

Mowry appeared on the scene in a black and white houndstooth minidress by Balmain. The fun frock had a halter neckline, cinched bodice, pleated skirt and was decorated with gold buttons at the center. To further elevate the moment, the “Family Reunion” actress added oversized gold hoop earrings, a slew of arm candy and chunky midi rings.

For glam, Mowry went with her signature shimmery eyeshadow and a glossy neutral pout. Her curly tresses were styled up into a pineapple, while a few strands framed her face.

Finishing Mowry’s look was a towering set of Maison Valentino platform pumps. The height-defying style had a chunky outsole and sat atop a 6-inch block heel. The shoes featured an ankle strap with an adjustable V Logo Signature buckle fastening.

The platform shoe trend is one of the easiest styles to incorporate into any wardrobe. Post-pandemic, platform shoes have emerged as one of the most popular footwear styles. The dramatic heel easily adds flair to any outfit.
