Michelle Obama’s Thigh-High Gold Boots Are A Bold Addition To Her Closet
While fashion naysayers declare that glitter and sparkles should be reserved for New Year's Eve, Michelle Obama's gold thigh-high boots say otherwise. The New York Times best-selling author, former FLOTUS, and certified style icon touched down in Brooklyn on Wed. for the latest stop on her Becoming book tour. Joined by fellow fashion maven Sarah Jessica Parker, Obama pulled out all the stops in a seriously next-level Balenciaga look.
Styled by Meredith Koop, Obama served golden goddess realness in a saffron silk dress from Balenciaga's Spring 2019 collection, but the true star of the look was the glittery, thigh-high boots from the luxury fashion house It-girls love. Style boundaries are clearly a thing of the past for the former First Lady, as her fashion choices have grown more and more daring throughout the cross-country tour.
In case you had any reservations around taking the plunge and making a splash in the footwear department, take Obama's bold look as a cue to just do it. The holidays are the perfect time to reach for those glitzy, far-out items you might otherwise turn away from, so make like Obama and shine bright this season.
Often times, glitzy events are associated with sky-high heels, but more and more fashion girls are opting for boots for special occasions these days. In the name of less blisters and more unexpected style risks, why not consider a sparkly version similar to Obama's for an upcoming night on the town?
As proven by Obama's truly golden style moment, the right pair of boots holds the power to take an already amazing look to the next level. Ahead, shop The Zoe Report's picks for boots that aren't just fit for a party — they are the party.
