Emma Roberts goes formal in classic sandals for the Dolce and Gabbana show – Footwear News
Emma Roberts was fully formal for Dolce and Gabbana’s Alta Moda show in Italy.
Posing before the show in Sicily, Roberts wore a feminine minidress. The “Abandoned” actress’ silky number featured a paneled bodice with off-the-shoulder sleeves shaped like a large black bow. Finishing the black and white floral print dress was a rounded bubble miniskirt with black lace trim. Roberts’ outfit was completed with a black shoulder bag with a gold heart-shaped lock – a design from the brand’s Devotion line of handbags – as well as large gold hoop earrings.
For shoes, Roberts donned a set of classic heeled sandals. Her minimalist pair appeared to feature black suede uppers, with thin toe and ankle straps. The style proved a versatile base for her outfit, allowing the dress to take center stage.
However, these weren’t the only set of slick heels the ‘Nancy Drew’ star wore for the fashionable affair. Earlier in the week, Roberts kicked off the four-day celebration with a fashion emergency while wearing a dress from the Italian luxury brand. Her fitted pink number, with a corset bodice and sequined skirt adorned with 3D flower appliqués, accidentally split as she slipped into a chauffeured car. Roberts’ outfit – seen in a humorous Instagram reel she shared on her own account – was completed with a sleek pair of metallic silver sandals, with thin stiletto heels and platform soles.
“It’s never as glamorous as it looks,” Roberts captioned the video, which now has over 3 million views.
Roberts’ shoe choices often vary between bohemian, contemporary, and edgy styles. When not on duty, the “Unfabulous” actress’s pairs range from Ferragamo platform sandals to Ugg boots, prioritizing ease and comfort. However, she frequently wears versatile pairs, including Valentino and Alexander McQueen Chelsea boots, Frankie4 sandals and Gucci mules. When she hits the red carpet, she often dons neutral or embellished pumps, strappy sandals and boots from brands such as Christian Louboutin, Prada and Chloe Gosselin.
Dolce and Gabbana’s Alta Moda Fall 2022 collection celebrated the brand’s 10th anniversary of its Alta Mood couture line, originally launched in 2012. The four-day event, held in Sicily, included a concert, dinner by the beach and fireworks. The 106 looks collection itself, held in the city’s historic Duomo square, was presented with a recreation of Pietro Mascagni’s opera ‘Cavalliera Rusticana’. The show also featured a front row of stars, which included Mariah Carey, Ciara, Helen Mirren, Drew Barrymore and more.
