Julianne Moore looked tres chic in a lovely Dior gown at the Cannes 2013 opening ceremony red carpet, but we have to admit we were somewhat distracted by her strappy silver sandals—or, more specifically, the way her pinky toes conspicuously spilled from the sides of the metallic shoes.
From the looks of things, we're guessing the ravishing redhead didn't try her heels on until right before she walked the red carpet, which is a shame because she could have made a pretty—and pretty comfortable—style statement with plenty of other snazzy shoes.
In fact, we've rounded up five heels that Moore—or perhaps her stylist?—should have packed as backup to avoid this Cannes don't!
We get it—silver totally complemented the iridescent lilac color of the pretty feminine skirt of Moore's Dior dress. But sometimes less is more and if she had skipped shoes with not one but two spaghetti straps, she could have avoided having her pinkies pop in the most awkward way.
How about these stunning Louboutins with a nice, ample single strap? Plus, we love the clear cuff, which would have provided the same support as an ankle strap without truncating Moore's leg. Or better yet, how about a—wait for it!—close-toed silver pump? The darling bow on this Prada pair perfectly fits the girly quality of the darling Dior gown and prevents toe spillage!
And speaking of Dior, perhaps the star should have stuck to with the brand and reached for its simple yet chic Allure sandals with an asymetrical strap similar to the ones Marion Cotillard wore with her lilac high-low Dior dress at the Tokyo premiere of Rust and Bone.
Of course, we wouldn't have minded if she made a splashier entrance with a statement shoe either, like this crystal-encrusted pair from Giuseppe Zanotti, or this eye-catching peep-toe pair by Nicholas Kirkwood.
But truth be told, anything would have been better for the otherwise adorable Moore.
