Lily Collins Is Wearing Micro Minis and Mega Platforms on Repeat

While a huge swathe of the fashion population has spent the winter season in chunky boots or retro-look sneakers, and with some celebrities already placing bets of the ballet flats comeback for 2023, it's been left to Lily Collins to continue to fly the flag for high heels. During her recent promo events to highlight the arrival of the third season of Emily in Paris, Collins and her styling duo Mariel Haenn and Rob Zangardi—a pair known for providing some of the most "wow" ensembles for the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani—have held steadfast in their dedication to ultra-glam looks that would be worthy of Emily's high octane Parisian wardrobe. And we're not talking about ordinary high heels here, we mean sky-scrapers. The black patent platforms she has worn on repeat are the Shoreditch heels from Kurt Geiger London and they feature a whopping 10cm heel with a 3cm platform. Although they could never be classed as casual, they have been versatile enough with Collins combining them with multiple outfits centered around short hemlines, from tweed skirt suits to swishy fringed styles. 

The 5ft 4 actress has also been stepping to even higher ground via Valentino's now instantly-recognisable ankle-strapped platform pumps—a pair that tower yet another 6.5cm above the KGs. The Tan-Go Valentino Garavani shoes have been worn by countless celebrities in the past year including Anne Hathaway, Dua Lipa, Jenna Ortega and many more. Her repetoire also includes Giuseppe Zanotti's Bebe platforms (in both black and white for good measure).
