Ask any fashion or footwear pundit what they believe to be the most iconic sneaker, and you'd be hard-pressed to find someone doesn't automatically say "Chuck Taylors." In its 100-plus year reign, the cult shoe has drummed up a fan base that knows no limits. Princess Diana, Kamala Harris, and the entire cast of Grease seem to agree: the shoe can be worn by anyone, for any occasion, across any sartorial era. All of this is reason enough to examine the ways fashion icons and celebrities are wearing Converses today — which seem to differ entirely from person to person.
All model types tend to have a few items they never stray from, which is what sets apart each of their All Star-sporting ensembles. For Bella Hadid, it's her baggy trousers; for Kaia Gerber, her polished blazers. Plucked from her maternity style file, Elsa Hosk is going for comfort — dressing her baby bump in a chunky knit, and her feet in a pair of lax Converses. Everyone's after entirely different color-ways, too, which might be the encouragement you need to stray from classic white styles in favor of something fresh and exciting.
