Not since the fabulous days of Brooke Shields carelessly walking the Red Carpet with a pair of pink Crocs shoes have I witnessed such a mismatch from a famous gorgeous lady attending an official event!
Brooke would most definitely approve such a look, I’m certain, but by fashion standards, Uma Thurman was deeply wrong in pairing her spring daisies printed red dress with a Sorel snow boots! In almost any occasion, but especially for an event such as the Tibet House US Benefit Auction hosted by NY’s Christie’s Auction House.
The Canadian brand famous for its comfortable winter footwear has many fans among the celebrities and normal people alike for everyone unanimously dislikes cold toes. The Sorel Shila NM boots worn by Uma are inspired by Inuit traditional cold weather footwear and are available in two colors – the Turkish Coffee Uma chose and Goat, a light, sand-like suede upper.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen! And to think Uma is one of Zac Posen’s Red Carpet darlings – I’m guessing he didn’t recommend this look?
Fashion balance must be restored somehow, somewhere, thus I’d like to keep in mind Uma Thurman’s look (despite her red maxi dress qualifying her at a Desperately Unstylish Housewife title) and think that somewhere up on the Colorado’s Aspen select heights, Mariah Carey decided to brave the snow in a pair of towering high heels!
Out and about, keeping herself protected from the cold with a lovely butter coat, Mariah opted for high heeled suede platform boots from Fendi I couldn’t personally walk in on a non-slippery surface without fear of falling apart. But the Diva is showing us how it’s done, walking through the snow in 5” (13cm) high heels!
And to think that Uma chose to walk indoors in New York on flat snow boots almost makes it mission impossible to believe Mariah’s audacity!
