Paparazzi’s favorite faces last week fueled up on their Earl Grey, braved cold temps and hurried off to observe a night of enchantment with the English National Ballet’s stunning performance of The Nutcracker. Stodgy it was not. Neither was the audience. From Jerry Hall to Bianca Jagger to Kate Moss, to socialites who had unrecognizable names but posed as if they were global iconistas, we forgot to look at the dancers. We scanned the boas, mufflers, dresses and went once again up and down the aisles to check for footwear too.
Hofit Golan, Israeli socialite, ignores the chill to show off a hot black dress that’s smartly offset by brown print shoes to match her dress trim and twin wrist bracelets. We preferred a shoe that would not overtake her accessories yet at the same time add chic. We did not have to look far. The find was Vera Wang Lavender Della Sandal Black Leather, with its soft ripples. Glameroso.
We love the reinvented Kate Moss as Bridget Bardot. Her look went over well when she was snapped leaving the Coliseum after the Nutcracker performance too. Kate looked tres feline with her black coat and great-looking tights. We were surprised to see that the edge stopped at staid heels though. We would have continued the feline look straight down to front-zip shoe level with these boffo heels, the MICHAEL Michael Kors Berkley Black Patent.
Jerri Hall hoofed it to the ballet with great purpose. Even with day-casual gear, Jerri Hall puts together clothes like a true supermodel. Her I’m-just-coming-from-the-chemist’s Nutcracker getup was no exception. She still looked elegantly weather-proof in her jacket, scarf and matching bag. We would have turned up the volume of ultra-casual with these ultra-posh shoes. They are Amalfi by Rangoni Esse Pewter Nappa.
Paloma Faith had her creative juices flowing before, during and after the ballet with this Bohemian look in poetess jacket, floral leggings and pond flower. This songwriter/singer/actress could have had the shoes that really finish the statement. Couldn’t she have flown over the rooftops via magic umbrella with this French Sole Season Black Nappa, which answers flower with flower in its own artistic way.
