Love the dress/belt and her natural look, but what is it with those gladiator sandals? Every chick in Paris owns them, it seems. Am I the only person on earth who thinks they should forever belong in ancient Rome?
An ok sense of style considering she works for French Vogue. You’d think she could take a bit more of a risk but it works for her. Still, I can’t help but envision the Olsens when others wear gladiators. Their signature styles demand possession of “edgy” footwear.
I love it. She looks contemporary but not fussy. As for the gladiators, I love them and bought a pair this year. I guess some on the board aren’t old enough to have worn them before. I even loved them when I was 12, and had a pair (flats) that laced all the way up to my knee! Of course, they went well with my ten-speed bike!
I was in Paris a few weeks ago and I was quite surprised at how many women were wearing gladiator sandals! I didn’t think I liked them either initially but I saw them so well executed by so many women with so many different outfits and I started to want them myself. They seemed quite versatile. Women wore then with jeans, long dresses, short dresses, shorts, etc. This photo is just another example of how great they can look. Her entire outfit is great!!! SHE looks great!
This is perfection…I love the way she belted the dress. And in this case the gladiators really do work.
The problem with gladiators, like sooooo many other trends, is the people who just buy them (the cheap knockoffs, of course) because they’re ‘in style’ and wear them with EVERYTHING, whether the sandals look good on them (and with the outfit) or not. The other day I saw a short, stubby-legged young lady wearing a pair of knee-high gladiators with khaki shorts and a tank top. Like, NO. Think!! Look in the mirror!
Blindly following trends that don’t flatter you is never fashionable. But who can blame people for wanting to believe they look as stylin’ and hot as this lady ;)
