The Oscar award ceremonies always put on a show when it comes to red carpet looks. Every year, celebrities emerge with their different gala outfits, daring, chic, and signed by famous designers.
At the 2021 awards, the Chinese director's style Chloé Zhaowho took home two golden statuettes for the film "Nomadland" (best film and best direction) and is the first Asian woman awarded as a director in the history of the awards, drew attention.
In contrast to the other looks, she wore a delicate pleated dress, in a raw tone, from the autumn-winter collection of Hermés, in conjunction with a pair of white sneakers, uniting casualness and luxury and leaving the internet abuzz.
Chloe's look was one of the night's favorites - and not by chance. In addition to going visually against the chic, voluminous gala dresses and sky-high heels, she sought comfort throughout her look, literally from head to toe. It is a reflection of how fashion has been behaving since the beginning of the pandemic?, explains Bruna Grein, stylist at La Femme, a reference in apartment shoes in Brazil, and a specialist in shoes and bags from Istituto Marangoni (Milan - Italy).
How to adopt the Chloe Zhao style?
But after all, for someone who is not a Hollywood star, is it okay to wear sneakers and espadrilles on special occasions and with gala dresscode? The answer is: of course!
In events where guests can abuse a little more of their imagination, it is worth taking direct inspiration from Chloe and combine the outfit, more elegant but not leaving the comfy vibe aside, with a nice pair of sneakers - white, black or colorful, just be a sneaker stylish - or espadrilles.
Not always a shoe, just because it is heelless, is necessarily comfortable. Before going out, always try the shoes on in advance, test the comfort wearing them at home, and see if there is anything in them that hurts or tightens.
It is important to remember that nothing is more chic than being you. From the moment you understand your style, it is possible to create several possibilities and be elegant in all of them. In Chloe's case, she chose a beautiful dress from a French designer, in a neutral tone, she did a more casual hairstyle, and closed with a golden key: a pair of white sneakers, also neutral in tone, but striking in the combination? concludes stylist Bruna.
