Jada Pinkett-Smith shines in wedges for new Shonda Rhimes project – Footwear News
Jada Pinkett-Smith was going for gold on Saturday night for the opening of the Rhimes Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles. Founded by ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ creator Shonda Rhimes, the new center includes a dance academy named after actress Debbie Allen and an aerial flight studio named after the children of Smith, Jaden and Willow Smith.
The “Matrix” actress made a glamorous entrance in a long gold dress. The strapless number featured a fitted bodice, as well as a wide, flared skirt. The piece’s sparkling fabric gave it total glamour, further accentuated by Smith’s matching earrings and rings. The occasion was notably Smith’s first appearance since her husband, Will Smith, got into a viral altercation with Chris Rock over a joke about his alopecia – which resulted in an Oscar ban for the actor until 2033.
As for shoes, Smith’s shoes were both comfortable and stylish. The actress arrived in a pair of gold sandals, with a gold metallic tone and crossover straps. The ensemble was completed with wrap-around straps, as well as chunky soles in a triangular wedge silhouette totaling at least 4 inches in height. The pair created a head-to-toe monochromatic look while still standing out in their evening appearances.
Wrapped heels were one of the most popular styles of the year, due to their sleek aesthetic and wrap-around ankle straps. Smith isn’t the only star to wear a pair in recent weeks. Zaya Wade, Kendall Jenner and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have also worn styles from Proenza Schouler, Tom Ford and Bottega Veneta. Wedge heels are also making a comeback, with new pairs recently released by Steve Madden, Betsey Johnson, Vince Camuto and more popular brands.
For Smith, the red carpets are the occasion of a glamorous dressing. The ‘Magic Mike XXL’ star often wears pumps and high-heeled sandals from brands like Giuseppe Zanotti, Gianvito Rossi and Christian Louboutin. These usually feature bold accents like metallic hues, crystals, and studs. The actress also favors colorful sneakers from Adidas and Yeezy when she’s off duty.
