Meryl Streep Oscar Shoes

Meryl Streep Oscar Shoes

The 2010 Academy Awards were marked by incredibly beautiful dresses with equally stunning shoes, the ones we were able to see. Take note that most of the gowns were floor length and flowing so it was hard to make out the shoes but what we did glimpse was tasteful and metallic.

If the Oscars are anything to judge by, then the shoe trends that will reign this season will be strappy sandals, platform shoes and metallic sandals.

Of course the Academy Awards aren’t like fashion week but these are actually shoe trends that have been hitting some high notes for over a season. The Oscars just actually confirmed that these trends will continue to hold favor.

Although the strappy, platform sandal is a complete success on Meryl Streep, I found it not as successful on another best actress nominee, Carey Mulligan. Granted her strappy black Prada sandals were lovely and I’d be more than happy to own a pair, I thought that they were a little bland and clunky looking with her dress, also by Prada. The dress had a high hem in the front which nicely framed the shoes but the thick straps on these sandals took away from the delicate grace of the dress. A thinner strapped sandal with some crystal embellishments would have looked so much cuter on Mulligan.
