Love It or Hate It? Elle Fanning’s Crazy Prada Platforms
Elle Fanning wore some crazy Prada platforms to the ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ premiere this week. Love ‘em or hate ‘em? Weigh in here
As we showed you yesterday, Elle Fanning attended the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 to support big sis Dakota, who plays the vampire Jane in the series. Both Fanning sisters rocked the red carpet as usual—but I’d like to draw some attention to Elle’s rather interesting footwear choice.
What she’s got on there are the Japanese geta-inspired shoes that featured so prominently in Prada’s spring 2013 show. In the show, models strutted down the runway in them paired with metallic toe socks… which, as Fashionista pointed out at the time, might end up being kind of a hard look for anyone who DOESN’T happen to make a living wearing ridiculous outfits to pull off.
But hey, guess what? Our little Elle wore them to the Breaking Dawn premiere… and I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure she rocked them. Happily, she left the metallic toe socks at home and kept her feet otherwise bare. Of course, Elle is already pretty tall, so she doesn’t exactly need the added height the shoes give her; but they add a playful touch to an otherwise pretty adult outfit, and the magenta soles give the whole look a colorful pop.
Of course, this could just be me. What do you think, Bettys? Are they magical? Hideous? Just kind of meh? Tell us in the comments!
