Suede Platform Pumps Are Now Red-Carpet Mandatory


Drew and Justin’s Going the Distance premiered Monday at Hollywood’s iconic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. So, were the red-carpet duds iconic, too? Well, yes and no!

Drew Barrymore‘s in classic, shimmering Catherine Malandrino and the season’s obligatory suede platforms.

Christina Applegate rocks maternity chic in retro mulberry.

Like we said, these shoes are de rigeur. Mixed feelings about this tie-dyed movement, since it has a tendency to look distinctly mildewed. But Malin Akerman looks undeniably fresh.

Stephanie Pratt: cute slip. Notice I did not say “dress.” Yes, that was the cut direct, missy.

Kate Beckinsale, sexing up a slightly mumsy shift with sky-high heels. (I think it’s a bit discordant, but to each her own!)

We’re at that point in the summer where we’re all just craving fall duds with an almost physical ache. So I get where Ashley Edner‘s coming from. Nevertheless, these are impulses that must be avoided.

Jennifer Stone opts for clogs – always a risky move, fashion-wise, and often surprisingly uncomfortable. In any event, these are a lot of metallics!

Man of the hour Justin Long goes all Brooks Brothers window display in a check shirt: gotta say, dude pulls it off.
