Every year, the Costume Institute Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art becomes a highly anticipated star-studded event as fashion lovers everywhere itch to see what their favorite celebrities will don in honor of the gala’s theme. This year’s theme celebrated China, going along with the museum’s new exhibition titled “China: Through the Looking Glass,” and supermodel Karolina Kurkova nailed the theme thanks to a pair of custom-made Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.
The shoe designer is a good friend of Karolina’s and reportedly prepared six shoe options for her big night. We’re glad she opted for a pair of red satin “Venere” sandals, which feature a gold lacquered detail forming decadent ankle wraps. The 31-year-old wore the sandals with a red kimono-style mini dress designed by Tommy Hilfiger. While the dress took the theme a bit literally, Karolina looked stunning, and her sandals gave the dress a high-fashion finish.
