Taylor Russell Nails the Y2K-Era Jeans and Strappy Sandals Combo


Taylor Russell gave us a blast from the past on the Gotham Awards red carpet today. The actor, who stars with Timothée Chalamet in the film Bones and All, appeared wearing a white fur chubby jacket: a Tom Ford-era Gucci archival piece from the spring 2004 show. To balance the megawatt Hollywood effect, the actor wore light-wash jeans and strappy heels, which instantly brought us back to the 2000s.  

Russell’s look is reminiscent of Mariah Carey, who popularized the strappy-sandal-and-denim combo on the red carpet. At the time, the singer often paired going-out shoes with low-rise, light-wash flares–sometimes with the waistband sheared off. Other celebrities who championed the ensemble included noughties red carpet darling Cameron Diaz and singer Janet Jackson. 

There’s a self-styled charm that comes from wearing sexy stiletto sandals and jeans with a high glam piece, such as Russell’s white jacket. (From her Instagram stories, it seems that she purchased the chubby herself from a vintage shop.) The overall look feels natural but playful, all while checking the boxes of a standout red carpet look.
