After countless red-carpet walk-throughs and mad dashes from paparazzi, it's no wonder celebs like K.Stew quickly swap out their stilettos as soon as they're out of the camera's view. But, once in a blue moon, a starlet will do the unthinkable — ditch the heels all together and opt for orthopedic-friendly footwear. The latest PYT to defy the norm? None other than Azealia Banks.
At an event in London, the Paper mag cover girl paired her Moschino Cheap & Chic dress with nostalgia-inducing jelly sandals. Who could forget the trendy plastic accessories that made your toes sweat like hell? Besides those chic Givenchys that we're always ogling at Barneys, we haven't thought about these guys since Clinton was in office!
Banks may be Lagerfeld's BFF, and, yes, she did attend the Met Gala as Alex Wang's date — but that doesn't mean girlfriend hits a home run every time she's at bat. Sure, we've witnessed stars strike fashion gold with eccentric ensembles, but this equation just doesn't add up. The shoes alone are worst-dressed material, but when matched with that questionable dress, Banks comes across as clown-ish.
Where do you stand on the crooner's kid-approved kicks — are you putting your foot down or are these jellies the jam?
