The red shoe has been everywhere this season, with celebrities from Sienna Millerto Dakota Johnson making a bold statement below the ankle. While Miller wore Gucci’s classic loafers and Johnson took to suede ankle booties in the same shade, it seems there’s a more ladylike alternative, as demonstrated by Lily-Rose Depp. When the French-born, American-raised model stepped out yesterday in Los Angeles, she wore a pair of red shoes that looked like cleverly modified ballerina flats.
With a pretty bow detail at the toe and a practical block heel, the choice of accessory felt as feminine as it did functional. And it was just what Depp needed to punch up a plain white slip dress, which featured delicate lacing at the neckline and barely-there spaghetti straps. She carried a navy-blue ribbed sweater that, together, created an all-American palette that was in direct contrast to her French girl shoes. Given the strong dose of color underfoot, Depp was able to forgo distracting accessories but added a dainty gold necklace and small hoop earrings for a shining finish.
