Charli XCX attended Valentino’s spring 2023 Haute Couture show in Paris today dressed in a dramatic all-black ensemble and hidden footwear.

Giving gothic realness, the “Unlock It” songstress styled a sleek black crop top underneath what looked like a lengthy black cape. The maxi-draped style was worn alongside tailored high-waisted trousers that smartened up Charli XCX’s cropped top.

Although her footwear was quite hard to see because of the lengthy hem of her trousers, it appeared that Charli XCX was sporting some sort of platform heel. 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, and can be found in various colorful iterations.

Milan Fashion Week Men’s began the year with a range of new fall 2023 menswear shows, held in Milan from Jan. 13-17. Presenting brands and designers including Prada, Dsquared2 and Fendi.
