“[A] rule about cool shoes is that they must be a little ugly,” a viral Twitter missive from director Sayna Fardaraghi earlier this week. Erykah Badu seems to know a thing or two about that. The neo soul legend has been seemingly everywhere this Paris Fashion Week. Her signature style is already hard to miss, but Badu has upped the game by accessorizing several of her looks with an object that makes her feet look like slithering tentacles. She wore a red version of the accessory to sit front row at Rick Owens’s show in Paris, and for the after party celebrating Riccardo Tisci’s final Burberry show in London earlier in the week. Then she was spotted in a gray pair out in the streets of Paris.
No one cleans up better than Amal Clooney. The human rights lawyer can wear a suit like nobody’s business, and then, when night falls, slip into a shimmering gown, put on a red lip, and look even more like a movie star than the man on her arm.

It’s hard to believe that the Met Gala has yet to pay homage to Karl Lagerfeld—not just during his lifetime, but especially since he passed away at age 85 after a private battle with pancreatic cancer in February 2019. That changes next spring, when the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute will honor the late legend with the exhibition, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty.” Comprised of roughly 150 garments from his time at Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, Patou, and Balmain, and Lagerfeld’s eponymous label, the show will explore the German-born designer’s stylistic legacy and working methodology over the course of his highly influential 65-year career. The exhibit, as always, will provide inspiration for the accompanying gala’s red carpet attire.
