Angelina Jolie Was Already Wearing this Hot Shoe Trend 19 Years Ago

Angelina Jolie is no follower of trends, and has crafted a timeless, resolutely chic style over the years, punctuating her wardrobe with timeless basics and staple pieces, such as leather pants, her suits borrowed from the men’s department, and leopard print shoes.

The season’s biggest trend: leopard print shoes

In 2005, while attending a charity gala in aid of Haiti, the activist appeared wearing a little white dress paired with leopard print heels by Christian Louboutin. Like leather and denim, leopard print has been a constant trend throughout the decades without aging a day.

Synonymous with elegance and oomph since its first appearance on the Christian Dior runway in 1947, the wild print is now making its comeback. Fashion houses and designers are reinterpreting it in a variety of ways, including via sheer dresses, maxi coats, trench coats, tights, and shoes. The Spring/Summer 2024 Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello show featured leopard prints on the collection’s star pieces.

Among the season’s most talked-about items are Jacquemus’ Double Sandales, unveiled at his fashion show on January 29. On that day, the designer presented his Spring/Summer 2024 collection, titled “Les Sculptures,” a stylistic ode to his passion for art, inspired by his admiration for Giacometti, at the Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Reminiscent of the artist’s work, his captivating silhouettes combined elegance and daring, with the designer allowing himself a touch of surrealism. The double-heel sandals went viral on social media in a matter of moments. Simon Porte Jacquemus designed them in several colors, including the famous pink and leopard print colorway. The star piece of his latest fashion show, these shoes have racked up no less than 16 million publications on TikTok.
