English musician Aluna Francis of ‘AlunaGeorge’ was spotted on the red carpet in a very edgy and fun ensemble!
She wore a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti wedge sneakers with an all-white strappy cocktail dress. Her messy hair screamed rock and roll, and the metallic details of her hoes finished the theme perfectly! While some critics hated this fashion choice, I like the idea of juxtaposing sporty wedge sneakers with a sexy party dress. It’s very unexpected and fresh without being too over the top.
However, she could have benefited from a colorful studded clutch or a necklace for a little extra oomph and to bring the look together. A leather vest or some type of complementary outerwear could have worked as well. Nonetheless, I like her edgy and fun outfit.

We weren’t able to find Aluna’s exact Zanotti style online but did dig up these very similar sneaker styles.
Giuseppe Zanotti Combo Zip Wedge Sneakers, $895 at Saks Fifth Avenue
Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Lorenz’ Leather and Suede Wedge Sneakers, $725 at Net-A-Porter
Do you think these styles are as cool as Aluna’s pair? Incidentally she was seen in another pair of nontraditional red carpet shoes earlier the same month:
