In May 2015, we spotted Elisabeth Moss wearing a pair of sexy suede Jerome C. Rousseau pumps that featured an unexpected heel hook.

One year later, Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin decided to rock the same pair of heels.

The then 19-year-old American actress and singer wore a black pair of “Bryant” heels to the 2016 Directors Guild Of America Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Earning numerous awards and nominations for her performance as Olive Hoover in the road comedy-drama Little Miss Sunshine, she was chosen for the role through an audition when she was six.

Is Little Miss Sunshine a true story?

Directed by the husband-wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Little Miss Sunshine is based on a screenplay written by first-time writer Michael Arndt.

Winning the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, he has later written for Toy Story 3 (2010) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

Filmed over 30 days in Arizona and Southern California during the summer of 2005, Little Miss Sunshine is not based on a true story.

Speaking at the independent bookstore Cody’s Books in San Francisco, Michael Arndt said he was inspired to write the story after reading a story about Arnold Schwarzenegger speaking to a group of high school students and saying “If there’s one thing in this world I hate, it’s losers. I despise them.”

“I thought, there’s something just so wrong with that attitude. There’s something so demeaning and insulting about referring to any other person as a loser, and I wanted to … attack that idea that in life you’re either going up or you’re going down,” Michael Arndt revealed.

Abigail wore her pumps with a metallic jacquard dress from the Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2016 collection. The dress featured a cleavage-baring v-neck and a floor-grazing high-low hem.

Unfortunately, Jerome C. Rousseau’s “Bryant” pumps have sold out online. The designer himself is pictured below with one of his first collections.
