Carey has certainly been embracing a minimalist look when it comes to her style these days. The Great Gatsby actress has frequently opted for no makeup and very streamlined ensembles on the red carpet. She’s also pretty consistent when it comes to her footwear. Although Carey does occasionally swap in a pair of Saint Laurent T-strap pumps, she mainly relies on her trusty Brian Atwood Aida platform sandals.
These black satin double platforms with buckled halter strap capped off her look earlier this month at the New York City unveiling of The Great Gatsby. A bright red strapless Lanvin Fall 2013 dress accented by Tiffany & Co. jewelry completed her premiere attire. She also attended her film’s special Pre-Met Gala screening in New York City wearing a black menswear-inspired Lanvin Spring 2013 outfit. Brian Atwood’s Aida sandals once again rounded out the look. Carey kept the elevated shoes in heavy rotation over in Cannes, too. She not only wore the Aida for the festival’s IFP, Calvin Klein Collection & Euphoria Calvin Klein Celebrate Women In Film event, but even selected the platforms for the premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis. The center slit on her black and white Vionnet Fall 2013 gown allowed onlookers the occasional glimpse at her favored footwear.
There’s no denying that Brian Atwood’s Aida sandals are a great option, but we just wish Carey would spice things up a bit in the shoe department.
