It started with Rita Ora last September, then we spotted Katherine McPhee trying the look, and now we’re seeing two more celebrities pull the same outfit. We’re discussing pairing girly girl dresses with chunky sporty (albeit glam) sneaks for event appearances.

Besides the American Idol runner-up, we also saw the ‘Hart of Dixie’ star, Jaime King, sport a similar look while attending the launch of Miss Wu (Jason Wu’s more accessible line) last weekend. She wore metallic gold flatform Chanel Cruise 2013 sneakers with a Jason Wu floral dress.

Fast-forward to last Wednesday at the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards, and we spotted young star Kathryn Newton sporting the same pair of gold flatform Chanel sneakers that Jamie wore with a white ultra-prim frock.
