12 Celebrities Who Dared to Chose Extravagant Shoes for Their Outfit and Hit the Jackpot

Usually, celebrities sport classic pumps or comfortable high-heeled sandals on the red carpet. But sometimes, actresses and singers decide to add some variety to their look and choose extravagant shoes with unusual heels. And some, like Lucy Liu, even challenge gravity.

At Bright Side, we decided to take a look at the extravagant shoes celebrities have worn to social events.

Sandra Bullock

It seems like children aren’t the only ones that love the yellow minions from Despicable Me. Sandra Bullock came to the animated movie’s premiere wearing bright custom-made minion pumps.

But she didn’t come to the premier just to show off her new shoes. Bullock conducted a charity auction and sold 10 autographed pairs. She managed to bring in a total of $84,850.

Angelina Jolie

Shoe designer Christian Louboutin created shoes that were inspired by Jolie’s character in Maleficent. The heels were made in the shape of the fairy’s horns. The actress sported these shoes at a photo session in London.

Marion Cotillard

In 2013, the French actress posed for photographers wearing Christian Dior’s shoes. At first glance, it seems like there’s nothing unusual about this elegant footwear. But pay attention to the curved heels. We hope that the actress felt comfortable walking on the red carpet in these.

Tilda Swinton

At the 58th Berlinale Film Festival, the movie Julia was premiered. Tilda Swinton walked the red carpet wearing sandals with very unusual heels.

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu came to the Film Independent Spirit Awards wearing Giuseppe Zanotti’s heelless shoes. If you look at this pair from a side-on view, you’ll see how bizarre these shoes are. It’s still unclear how Liu managed to keep her balance in this footwear.

Katy Perry

The famous singer is known for her love of extravagant items. In 2012, she came to Paris Fashion Week wearing Prada flame sandals.

Taylor Swift

The singer sported Sophia Webster’s butterfly heels at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, which perfectly complemented her jumpsuit. Fans immediately began to throw around theories as to why Swift chose such an unusual pair of shoes. Some people decided that the singer wanted to show the evolution of her work this way — she left her cocoon and became a butterfly.

Sarah Jessica Parker

In 2011, Sarah Jessica Parker came to Moscow, Russia to promote her movie, Don’t Know How She Does It. The actress came out to her fans wearing Christian Louboutin’s lion paw pumps.

Kelly Osbourne

If you look at Kelly from a side-on view, you’ll immediately see what’s so special about her shoes. The singer put on Karl Lagerfeld’s pumps with backsides that looked like ice cream cones.

Salma Hayek

The actress definitely likes these Casadei shoes with clear heels. The first time she wore them was in 2013 when she appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. A year later, Hayek appeared at the premiere of Exodus: Gods and Kings wearing the same shoes.

Selena Gomez

The singer and actress is obviously fond of unusual footwear. In 2017, she came to an event wearing shoes with mismatched heels.

These unusual Jacquemus sandals perfectly complemented her simple black dress. As they say: “The devil is in the details.”

A year later, Gomez appeared at a teen event in elegant pumps with crazy high heels that looked like a work of modern art.

Sarah Paulson

Actress Sarah Paulson follows trends too. In 2019, she came to the Glass premiere in mismatched shoes decorated with crystals.
