While this year’s highly anticipated Met Gala was missing the presence of some mega stars like Beyonce, Ariana Grande, T-Swift, and Rhianna, our fashion-centered eyes were still still able to feast off a handful of celebs who brought the WOW factor in the shoe department. I was disappointed that so many celebs chose super simple (BORING) single strapped sandal stilettos to this event. I’m always expecting more in the shoe department. However, this year, we saw ostentations, gaudy costumes take center stage on yesterday.
Nevertheless, I wanted to share with you the women’s footwear trends that I noticed along with my favorite footwear picks from the evening.
Platform Roll Call
Now, there was a rumor going around about a year or so ago that basically predicted that platforms were going extinct. I’m so glad to see that myth busted because I love the extra height and stability of a good platform. Here are some platformed styles that celebs rocked:
Ah, style and comfort is always the goal, and new momma Serena Williams, accomplished that in her neon sneaks from a Nike X Off White collab.
Glamour Appears In the Soles
From fairytale shoes to dreamy footwear accessories, I was pleased to see these feminine designs on hand.

Celeb Accessory Bootcamp
Naomi Campbell is actually in a laced tight situation, but I thought, “Oh, how fun would these be as boots?”.

At one point in the fitting process, Michael said “if Cher, Elton, Bowie, and Liberace had a dinner party at Daisy Buchanan’s.” We had so much fun creating this look ! Thank you Anna @voguemagazine for another beautiful Met Ball, and to @michaelkors for being the CAMP KING date of dreams last night 🎩🎩🎩🕶
So, with all these show-stopping looks, who actually came out on top at this year’s Met Gala? I’ll tell you who. The clear winner here is Kacey Musgraves because she got to get the most out of her look and dime with her ALDO heels.
Shoe Lovers, I hope you all enjoyed this 2019 Met Gala round up. See you next year!
