When I first saw YSL’s caged heels that have been presented on the runway of the Spring 2009 RTW collection, I was wondering which celebrity would have the guts to wear these on the red carpet. My initial guesses were Roisin Murphy or Tilda Swinton. Oh how wrong I was!
I was floored when I saw Ciara wearing the caged heels and matching grid belt with a short black jumpsuit at the premiere of Andre 3000’s stage play “Class of 3000“. The singer looked head-to-toe gorgeous. It’s so refreshing to see a celebrity wearing something totally unexpected on the red carpet.
I know it may come off derogatory, but the R&B/Soul music department isn’t particularly known for their fashion choices. That’s why I believe that Ciara is a true fashionista at heart (or maybe she just has a great stylist). The singer has shown us she knows how to work high end designer fashion before and edgy footwear seems to be her weakness (see Balenciaga Fall 2008 ankle booties).
