Miu Miu’s ballet flats are a beloved staple of fashion editors. The satin pair seen on the brand’s fall 2008 sale quickly gained cult status (they were named the world’s hottest product last year by fashion search engine Lyst), and BritishVogue
Contributing Beauty Editor Tish Weinstock loved her clothes so much she wore them on her wedding day in a spring buckle style, meanwhile, this pair of shoes is also very common in Vogue House.
The shoes found new fans in Katie Holmes, who wore a black pair to the 2017 Theater World Awards in New York On June 5, wear it with a sheer maxi skirt and blazer. Versions of the shoe with gingham or black ribbon ankle laces appeared on the runway, but Katie opted for a plain patent leather pair without the ribbon accents.
This isn’t the first time Katie has worn the brand’s signature flats. Back at 2008, when she had her pixie hair, she was wearing shiny red jeans with baggy jeans, a raspberry v-neck sweater, and a Paraty bag by Chloé -Very Noughties look. Proving their enduring appeal, it’s no surprise to see Katie in those red Mary Janes this summer.
