Most famous figures catch up with the new trend, especially in terms of fashion. In some cases, stars like to mix different trends to create a novel design. The mules Margot sporting in the photo above featured all the trends of that season: western boots with square toes and metallic decorations.

5. Daphne Guinness


Sometimes, the star's shoes are noticeable because of their unique and unusual design rather than their beauty. An example is the oversized boots without heels of Daphne Guinness at the Paris Fashion Week 2017.


6. Rowan Blanchard


Another weird pair of shoes belong to the actress Rowan Blanchard. At the LA premiere of the Euphoria TV series, she donned canary-yellow mules with sculpted wedge heels.

Nicole seemed to stand out in a noticeable red gown with a plunging neckline. However, everyone paid much attention to her pair of high heels, which didn't match each other. While the strap of the right one was adorned with jewels, the other side was left plain.

8. Diane Kruger

Sometimes, simple and plain items are what make the difference. At the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards, Zoe sported elegant white pumps matching her stripe dress. The outfit might look ordinary, but it wasn't easy to walk in those shoes.

13. Kaley Cuoco


While most beauties chose high heels for red carpet events, Kaley donned a pair of sneakers from the luxury fashion house Dior at an event in 2016. Nevertheless, she changed into black suede sandals later.
