Wimbledon came to a close over the weekend, attracting a star-studded audience that included the Princess of Wales, Stormzy, Lily James and Idris Elba. They all turned out in elevated attire to witness the men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz. Notably, Ariana Grande and Emma Watson were also in attendance on Sunday. In a surprising sartorial twist, both Grande and Watson, despite their contrasting styles, ended up selecting the same unconventional pair of heels to complete their respective looks.
For the occasion, Grande opted for a ladylike ensemble comprising a grey cashmere short-sleeved turtleneck top and a pleated maxi skirt set from the Ralph Lauren collection. To accessorise, she wore a white Wimbledon logo cap, gold hoop earrings adorned with pearls from Mejuri and a small black leather tote bag from The Row. Adding a touch of flair to her look, the pop sensation completed it with a pair of striking black leather Loewe Toy pumps, which featured a petal shaped toe and lacquered heel.
At the same event, Watson opted for a more casual-chic take on traditional Wimbledon style. She wore a sleeveless white button-up shirt that featured an oversized retro-inspired collar, peach high-waisted pleated trousers, a beige wide-brim fedora hat with a black grosgrain ribbon detail and a khaki shoulder bag. The actor polished off her outfit with the same off-beat pair of Loewe Toy pumps as Grande’s, but in white.
The Toy pumps made their debut at Loewe’s spring/summer 2023 show in Paris, which showcased a collection that focused on making natural objects appear fake and vice versa. (Other playful Loewe shoe moments include heels that resemble life-like roses, soap bars and lipsticks.) Ariana demonstrated their versatility by styling them with a classic silhouette, creating a more refined look. On the other hand, Emma opted for a casual approach, pairing them with pleated trousers and a relaxed top. Regardless of the chosen style, these quirky shoes bring an extra dimension to any ensemble.
