Olivia Rodrigo made her concert debut at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas in her avant-garde style, with matching shoes.
The pop star took the stage yesterday for her iHeartRadio Daytime Village ensemble, wearing a sleek crop top. The cutout number featured a black headband, long cold shoulder sleeves and a high neckline. Rodrigo accentuated his look with longtime stylists Chloe and Chenelle Delgadillo, pairing high-waisted gray wide-leg pants with an eyelet belt, wallet chains and silver rings.
Rodrigo also added his own touch to the look: a silver bracelet inspired by the movie “Breaking Dawn: Part 2” from the “Twilight” series. “I wear my ‘Breaking Dawn’ charm bracelet for luck,” the star captioned a photo of her wrist before her performance.
One of her signature was the “Driver’s License” singer’s shoes: platform boots. As seen on Delgadillo’s Instagram Stories, Rodrigo ran on stage in a pair of black leather platforms. The pair appeared to feature a thick platform base that was at least 4 inches high, as well as big rounded toes. They also included spiked soles, which added a utilitarian touch to Rodrigo’s look.
Platform shoes have become the number one choice among celebrities now that events such as concerts have resumed. Style’s penchant for safety and style, often courtesy of chunky heels and supportive accents including ankle straps and stretchy shanks, has led to their popularity. Stars Rita Ora, Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Beckinsale have all worn trendy pairs with an extra size in recent weeks as well.
When it comes to shoes, Rodrigo often wears pairs that complement his avant-garde style. Black leather combat and knee-high boots from Dr. Martens, Naked Wolfe and Magda Butrym proved to be her favorites, as well as sneakers from Vans and Converse. Her on-trend shoe choices often include chunky platforms or higher heels, including boots and brogues from Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs and TUK. .
